what are the requirements of a differential equation for its solution to be a power series? the function has to be analytic; what exactly does this mean? does the right hand side always have to equal zero as well?

Analytic just means it can be locally defined by a power series..

The simple version says that if you have where are continous on an interval then there exists an analytic solution to this differencial equation.
