[tex]R'' + 2rR' - Rl(l+1) = 0[/tex], where [tex]R = R(r)[/tex] and l is a constant. This is portion of sol'n by separation by variables to laplace's equation in spherical coordinates.

I tried laplace transform, but reached integral that I don't think admits analytic sol'n.

[tex]F'(s) + F(s)[\frac{1 + l(l+1)}{s} - s] = sA + B[/tex], where R(0) = A, R'(0) = B.

What am i missing? Is series sol'n the only way?
