(x-1)y"-xy'+y=0,    y(0)=-2, y'(0)= 6

check_circleExpert Solution
Step 1

The differential equation is given as: help_outlineImage Transcriptionclose(x-1)y" 0, y (0)=-2 y'(0) 6 Consider the power series as ycx Obtain the first and second derivatives as follows. ykxy=2k(k-1)c,x*-2 fullscreen
Step 2

Substitute y and its derivatives in the differential equation and obtain the recurrence relation as follows. help_outlineImage Transcriptioncloseco Τ Τ ( x-)Σ (k- 1)ς,x*3 -Σkr,x* -1 Σc,x-0 k-2 -0 k-1 στ ΣΣk(k-1)c, πς -Σk(t-1)c,xt-3 xΣ k,x* +Σοχ =0 -2 -2 t-l k-0 Ε m Σ (k-1)ς,xα -Σ (k -1)c, x-Σk,x' +Σq -0 t-2 -0 t-0 Σ(k+ 1)c, Σ(k+2) (k + 1)c, ,-Σ&,χ' + Σς,χ' -0 t-0 -0 k-0 -0 fullscreen
