I have this PD equation:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

[tex]

T_t=\nabla ^2 T^4

[/tex]

where T=T(r,t) the above laplacian is spherical symmetrical (i.e only the spherical radial coordinate of the operator should be taken into account).

and [tex]Q_0=\int_{0}^{\infty}T(r,t=0)dr[/tex].

So I tried solving it by seperation of variables but I get a tough ODE of the radial part.

Here's what I got

[tex]T(r,t)=F(r)G(t) \newline \frac{\frac{dG}{dt}}{G^4}=\frac{\nabla ^2 F^4}{F}=\lambda [/tex]

Now after some manipulations I get for the radial equation the next equation:

[tex]F''(r)+3(F'(r))^2/F(r)+2F'(r)/r-\lambda/(2F(r))^2=0[/tex]

And this is where I am stuck, any suggestion as to how to untie this equation, is even possible?
