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:
