Homework Help: How to solve a second order linear homeogeneous ODE with Frobenius?

  1. Mar 8, 2006 #1
    A simple question i think although i cant find in any books

    What do u when u are solving a second order linear hoemoeneous differential equation with frobenius and there is no shift.

    [tex](X^2)(y^{''}) (-6y)=0[/tex] it should be normal minus -6y

    I only know what to do if there is a shift.Help someone?

    This is otherwise known as series solutions to differential equations

    Well i think i figured it out.
    There is no recurrence relation and so your indical relations become your 2 values of the series.Thanks for the help.:rolleyes:
