Hi all,
I tried unsuccessfully to find the solution of a differential equation
using Mathematica 6.0.2.1. The given solution is wrong. Would it be
possible to help me? Here is what I have done:
Knowing that n is an integer, I want to solve the following
differential equation:
DSolve[r^2A''[r]+r A'[r]+(K^2r^2-n^2)A[r]==r( n B1- B2),A[r],r]
So what I wrote is:
Res=Assuming[Element[n,Integers],DSolve[r^2A''[r]+r A'[r]+(K^2r^2-
n^2)A[r]==r( n B1- B2),A[r],r]]
I checked using:
Res /. n -> 1
And the result is Indeterminate! Sad!! (same thing with n->2 or n-
>3, ...)
On the contrary when I change directly the value of n in the equation
and set it n=1:
DSolve[r^2 A''[r] + r A'[r] + (K^2 r^2 - 1^2) A[r] == r ( 1 B1 - B2),
A[r], r]
Mathematica find a solution!
Where is the bug? How to find the general solution with n integer
for:
DSolve[r^2A''[r]+r A'[r]+(K^2r^2-n^2)A[r]==r( n B1- B2),A[r],r]
Is Mathematica able to do that??
Thanks somuch for your help!
