I'm having trouble getting started on this problem... I just really don't understand what to do.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Solve

[tex]X'+2X'+(\lambda-\alpha)X=0, 0<x<1[/tex]

[tex]X(0)=0[/tex]

[tex]X'(1)=0[/tex]

a. Is [tex]\lambda=1+\alpha[/tex] an eigenvalue? What is the corresponding eigenfunction?

b. Find the equation that the other eigenvalues satisfy.

I appreciate any help you can give me!

Thanks,

Chris
