How to solve Bessel?
Ok so this is the problem that I am working on.
I have completed parts 1 and 2, which involve the changing of variables, but the problem I am having is finding one solution of the original DE.
This is the answer I got for part one is
The answer for part 2 is
I am sorry that I am using print screens, I am just not very good at using LateX and this was quicker.
i think i have found my mistake (Happy). for part two, when i was finding the equation in terms of x and y, it was y(1-3/(4x^2)) which I can now multiply through by x^2 and it would be in bessel form. I'll now try and go over the steps that you showed me and hopefully I will get the right answer.
ok im stuck again, and i still dont understand those substitutions you are making towards the start of your solution...
The function that I have now is
X^2(d2y/d2x)-2x(dy/dx)+(x^2 - 3/4)y=0
which I believe is of bessel type? Am i wrong?
This is a Bessel equation. But this will get you to the equation that I started off with.
