Abramovitz presents even and odd solutions to the Weber equation.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

He also presents standard solutions as a pair of parabolic cylinder functions.

Clearly any linear combination of the even and odd solutions is also a solution of the equation.

My question is: Why is the parabolic cylinder function so special to be considered a "standard" solution?
