**Non-linear Differential Equation - Pulling my Hair !**

Hi,

What seems like a simple problem could be going abit better. Any ideas would be sincerely appreciated.

(y'')^2 -xy'' + y' = 0

The squared term is causing me grief !

If I set say v = y' , that still leaves me with the squared term.

(v')^2 - xv' + v =0.

Sorry .. I must be missing something. This looks remarkably quadratic - but its not triggering anything for me right now.

Ideas please and thank you !

J. Kent.
