Can someone explain to me why there isn't a singular point in this ordinary differential equation? y'' + 4y' + (sin(x)/x)y = 0 I have an idea as to why but I just want to be sure about it. Thanks, Simon

Then tell us what your idea is!
I'll try and explain! If the singular point is 0, then because sin(0) = 0, the third term would disappear. This leaves y'' + 4y' = 0 Therefore there are no singular points. Am I right or have I gone completely the wrong way? Thanks, Simon
