Imposing boundary condition at infinity


Hi all,

I need to solve a differential equation whose solution has the
contraint that it tends to zero in the infinite limit. Mathematica will
not, however, allow \[Phi][Infinity]==0 as one of the contraints. Does
mathematica have another notation for dealing with this constraint?

Thanks.

James
