B[m_, f_] := (D[f[#], {#, 2}] + 
    1/# D[f[#], {#, 1}] + (1 - m^2/#^2) f[#]) &

DSolve[B[m, S][r] == 0, S[r], r][[1]]

{S[r] -> C[1]*BesselJ[m, r] + C[2]*BesselY[m, r]}

Hi,

I have defined a differential operator, but what's the syntax for
using it in DSolve?

I have the Bessel operator

B[m_, f_] := (D[f[#], {#, 2}] +
    1/# D[f[#], {#, 1}] + (1 - m^2/#^2) f[#]) &

It's the Bessel operator for now, but I will soon replace it with a
different one. This is for testing puposes only.

Now, how do I use it in DSolve?

So far I use

DSolve[S''[r] + 1/r S'[r] + (1 - m^2/r^2) S[r] == 0, S[r], r]

but that's not a good solution because I have to different expressions
for the same thing. I want to used B only.

Many thanks in advance,

Aaron
