What was the problem?

A differential equation of the form: is said to have a "regular singular point," , if:

AND

That is, if both the above limits are finite for the point , then is said to be a regular singular point

Now try the problem and post the solution if you wish, so we can check it

Note:We say is a singular point if and/or are discontinuous functions at . We classify the singular point as "regular" or "irregular" by the method above
