Im trying to determine the recurrence relation of the following differential equation : x(x-2)y'' + (1-x)y' + xy =0 about the regular singular point x =2.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I've tried rewriting the DE as (x-2+2)(x-2)y'' -(x-2+1)y' +(x-2+2)y =0, but it doesn't seem to work. any ideas?
