I have not managed to solve this differential equation in terms of special functions. However, some comments about the solution can be found in the following Notebook: ftp://ftp.physics.uwa.edu.au/pub/Mathematica/MathGroup/RiemannDE.nb Cheers, Paul ____________________________________________________________________ Paul Abbott Phone: +61-8-9380-2734 Department of Physics Fax: +61-8-9380-1014 The University of Western Australia Nedlands WA 6907 mailto:paul at physics.uwa.edu.au AUSTRALIA http://www.physics.uwa.edu.au/~paul God IS a weakly left-handed dice player ____________________________________________________________________
