I'm looking at the BVP:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

[tex]y'' + ay' + e^{ax}y = 1[/tex],

with y(0) = 0 and y(10) = 0.

The numerical solution blows up at certain values of [tex]a[/tex]. For example, a near 0.089 and a near 0.2302. Why does this happen and how do I predict it?
