Hi all,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I'm just a beginner with mathematica, and I tried to plot the solution of the following equation

[itex] \frac{d}{dx} (x^2 \frac{d y}{dx})=x^2 e^{-y}[/itex]

with boundary conditions

[itex] y(0)=0, y'(0)=0 [/itex]

Using the following mathematica code:

NDSolve[{D[x^2 y'[x], x] == x^2 Exp[-y[x]], y[0] == 0, y'[0] == 0}, y, {x, 0, 30}]

But I got "Power::infy: "Infinite expression 1/0. encountered, ecc" and I don't know why and I don't know hot to solve and plot that equation in mathematica.

Can anyone help me?

Thank you

Mattia
