Linear shooting Method

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


    I have to "derive and submit the appropriate initial value problems (with initial conditions) for u(x) and v(x). Show me all 4 equations and initial conditions... "

    and I know you get u(x) and v(x) by solving ivp's for the original equation, one homogeneous and one not. but do i use two initial guesses for y'(0)=? and then i have 4 of those? i'm unsure of what is being asked exactly.

    So am I. What is f(x), u(x) and v(x) and how are they related?

    is a linear combination of y. such that u'(0) = 0 and v'(0)=a

    whoops, v'(0)=1
