```Hi,

my Mathematica 5.2 return
{{y[x] -> (Sqrt[-2*L + 2*x]*BesselI[0,
2*Sqrt[k^2*(-L + x)]]*C[1])/Sqrt[2*L - 2*x] +
(Sqrt[-2*L + 2*x]*BesselK[0, 2*Sqrt[k^2*(-L +
x)]]*
C[2])/Sqrt[2*L - 2*x]}}

Regards

Jens

|    Hi buddies,
|
|               Here is a differential equation ,
which could not be done by
| DSolve  (in Version 5.0 ).
| This occurs in the mathematical modelling of a
simple pendulum of length L
| and a parameter  k .
| (Actually , k ^ 2 = frequency of oscillation^2 /
acceleration due to gravity
| )
|
|            (L - x) y''[x] - y'[x] + k^2 y[x] ==
0         .... (1)
|
|  The above equation is in fact reducible to
Bessel's differential equation
| (with order n = 0 )
|
| with the substituions  L-x = z and s = 2 k
Sqrt[z]
|
|             y''[s] + 1 /s  y'[s] + y[s] ==0
.... (2)
|
| The text-book says that the solution of eqn (1)
contains a BesselJ[0,2 k
| Sqrt[L-x] ].
|
|
|  How can I get DSolve to answer (1) directly ,
without resorting to eqn (2)?
|
