HEllo everyone,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

a question about the 2nd order, homogeneous, linear diff .eqn. of order n, called the Hermite equation.

A ODE has a general solution. The BCs and the ICs specify, select a particular solution out of the general solution.

What are the Hermite polynomials? They are polynomials of different order n, that are solutions to the mentioned equation.

But under which BCs or ICs?

I can see how they solve the eqn, but I am not sure what type of solution they represent.... general, particular.....

thanks
