Method of undetermined coefficent

  1. May 13, 2005 #1
    method of undetermined coefficent is applied when g(x) is exponent, polynomial or trigonometric function. What will happen if g(x)= lnx or some other log function
    ay`` + by`+ cy = g(x), where g(x)=log function. What method to use then?
