 Author Comment/Response Lorentz 02/25/12 12:29pm Hi, I tried to solve numerically this equation by using NDSolve -y''[x]*x^2 - y'[x]*x + x^2*y[x]^3 + (-x^2 + 1)*y[x] == 0 I know that at x=0 the function must to vanish, instead at infinity it has to tend to 1 (but at x=5 it must to be already near 1) However, with the condition y[0]=0 Mathematica says Infinite expression 1/0^2 encountered. Why? What does it means? I tried whit other boundary conditions but the function always explodes near the origin. Why this problem? This in not a pure homework as it could seems URL: ,
