If function behaviour is a priori known to have symmetry somewhere,
perhaps better to avoid asymmetric asymptotic boundary conditions in
the ODE itself. Otherwise I do not know.. For example in Gaussian
distribution y''[x]= - y[x] ( 1- ( x/a)^2 ), a choice of symmetric case
boundary conditions as initial value problem y ==1 , y' ==0
includes the zero at infinity automatically.
