I Sturm-Liouville Separation theorem

  1. Oct 3, 2016 #1
    Hi, I wonder why wronskian must be constant.

    I know that p(x)W[u1(x),u2(x)]=constant, according to the Abel's theorem, but
    wouldnt there a special case that W[u1(x),u2(x)]=c/p(x).

    Then for this special case, W[u1(x),u2(x)]=/=c and satisfies Abel's theorem.
    Is it ok to ignore this special case?

    Thanks for the thread! This is an automated courtesy bump. Sorry you aren't generating responses at the moment. Do you have any further information, come to any new conclusions or is it possible to reword the post? The more details the better.
