Show that Jn(px) satisfies
x^2y'' + xy' + (p^2x^2 - n^2)y = 0;
and deduce
[x d/dx Jn(px)] (Subscript)x + ((p^2)x -n^2/x) Jn(px) = 0:
Show that the integral between l and 0 of xJn(px)Jn(qx) dx =
l/(q^2 - p^2) [pJn(ql)J'n(pl) - qJn(pl)J'n(ql)] ;
and, using l'Hopital's rule,
the integral between l and 0 of
xJn^2(px) dx =l^2/2 Jn'^2(pl) + 1 - (n^2/p^2l^2)Jn^2(pl)
Deduce that, if l is such that Jn(pl), Jn(ql) are both zero (i.e. pl and ql are both
roots of Jn(x)), then
the integarl between l and 0 of
xJn(px)Jn(qx) dx = 0; p doesnt equal q
Okay.
Given, the Bessel equation,
The Bessel function of order ,
satisfies the differencial equation.
We need to show that,
satisfies the differencial equation.
(*)
Since,
We have that,
With the boxed equation we can show that satisfies the differencial equation (*).
Note that,
Substitute that into (*) to get,
And this expression is equal to zero by the boxed equation.
Hence satisfies (*).
