Homework Help: Hypergeometric Function D.E. Urgent

  1. Nov 1, 2012 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    Find the general solution in terms of Hypergeometric functions near x = -1 :
    (1-x2)y'' - (5x2 - 9)/5x y' + 8y = 0

    3. The attempt at a solution

    Here the coefficient of y' contains 9/5x which causes problem. The general form contains the coefficient of y' as A+Bx

    How do I solve this?
