Homework Help: Sturm-Liouville Problem

  1. Nov 19, 2006 #1
    Hi everyone,
    I would really appreciate if any of you can help me solve this problem:

    [Sinx y']' + [Cosx+ lambda Sinx] y = 0 ; 1<x<2; y(1) = y(2) = 0

    this is a regular sturm-liouville problem. I need to find the eigenvalues and eigenfunctions of this problem.

    What have you tried? Have you tried finding the Green's function?

    Thanks for your reply. No I haven't. I don't know how to do that.
