1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data The Cauchy-Euler equation is: x2y'+axy'+by=0 And has a solution of the form: y1(x)=xm Use the method of Variation of Parameters to show that the second independent solution is: y2(x)=xmln(x) So that the overall solution is: y(x)=[A+Bln(x)]xm Hint: This equation suggests that the characteristic equation has two identical roots. Hint: Use the following transformation: x=et 2. Relevant equations None 3. The attempt at a solution I'm not really sure how to start this. Any help would be very much appreciated.
