Few remarks:
. Do not use subscripted functions/variables or use the Symbolize
command from the Notation package
. Spaces between variables are important since they are interpreted as
implicit multiplication (a b == a*b != ab) otherwise you just have a
name two ore more symbols
. Capital I is a reserved/built in symbol that denote the imaginary unit
Sqrt[-1], here I believe you want i
. Your system is overdetermined, which usually mean that you have
conflicting equations
. NDSolve requires to have numeric values for every parameter, otherwise
you may want to use DSolve, which is a symbolic solver
In[1]:= NDSolve[{(y^\[Prime])[x]==-\[Rho] y[x],y[0]==y0,i \[HBar]
(y^\[Prime])[x]==\[Epsilon] y[x],y[0]==y0,(y^\[Prime]\[Prime])[x]+2
\[Rho] (y^\[Prime])[x]+k^2==0,(y^\[Prime])[0]==g0},y,x]
During evaluation of In[1]:= NDSolve::overdet: There are fewer
dependent variables, {y[x]}, than equations, so the system is
overdetermined.
Out[1]= NDSolve[{(y^\[Prime])[x]==-\[Rho] y[x],y[0]==y0,i \[HBar]
(y^\[Prime])[x]==\[Epsilon] y[x],y[0]==y0,k^2+2 \[Rho]
(y^\[Prime])[x]+(y^\[Prime]\[Prime])[x]==0,(y^\[Prime])[0]==g0},y,x]
In[2]:= DSolve[{(y^\[Prime])[x]==-\[Rho] y[x],y[0]==y0},y,x]
Out[2]= {{y->Function[{x},E^(-x \[Rho]) y0]}}
