Re: Sturm-Liouville Problem (differential equation eigenvalue problem)


Hi,

why not ? 

v[x]==u[x]+va+(vb-va)*(x-x0)/(xe-x0)

It changes the form of differential equationfor v[x] thats right,
but it is more important to have homogen boundary conditions.
You can still try other functions when the transformed differential
equation becomes easyer.

Regards
