Does anyone have a Notebook which has a nice, general, implementation of the Frobenius method for obtaining the series solution to a general linear second order differential equation in the neighborhood of a regular singular point? Of course, it is trivial to use Series and Solve to obtain solutions in specific cases -- but I'd like something that handles all cases (such as when the roots of the indicial equation differ by an integer).
