Green's function for Cauchy-Euler equidimensional equation

Hi,

I am trying to compute the Green's function for a Cauchy-Euler equidimensional equation,
[tex]\frac{d^2G}{dx^2}+\frac{a}{(x-x_c)^2}G=A_1\delta(x-x')[/tex]
If the impulse is located at a location [tex]x'\neq x_c[/tex] then computation of Green's function is not an issue. What happens when [tex]x'= x_c[/tex] ?
[tex]\frac{d^2G}{dx^2}+\frac{a}{(x-x_c)^2}G=A_1\delta(x-x_c)[/tex]
The solution of the homogeneous equation is [tex](x-x_c)^{1/2\pm\nu}[/tex] where, [tex]\nu=\sqrt{1/4-a}[/tex]
The trouble is if one tries to relate the change in slope of the Green's function with the strength of the impulse one has,
[tex]\int_{x_c-\epsilon}^{x_c+\epsilon}\frac{d^2G}{dx^2} dx+\int_{x_c-\epsilon}^{x_c+\epsilon}\frac{a}{(x-x_c)^2}G \!dx=A_1[/tex]
From the Frobenius exponents we see that the only for [tex]a=0[/tex] is the second integral is a Cauchy principal value integral.
Is it sensible to seek for a Green's function for such cases or one needs to make certain modification?
Thank you,
