    sturm liouville problem

    Deduce that all eigenvalues of the following Sturm-Liouville problem are simple:
    (
    py')'+ qy = 0; a1y(a) + a2y'(a) = 0; b1y(b) + b2y'(b) = 0

    can you give some hints to solve this please?

    thanks

    The boundary conditions forbid any two common eigenfunctions from being linearly independent.
