(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

If y(x)=0 satisfies the ode and all the boundary conditions than does it count as the first eigenfunction?

3. The attempt at a solution

It wouldn't satisfy the orthogonality relation though? In that the integral of 0 and 0 is 0 even though the integral is over two eigenfunctions that are the same.
