Textbook Problem

Use power series to solve differential equation y"xy' – 2y = 0

To determine

To solve: The differential equation by using power series.

Explanation

Given data:

The differential equation is,

yxy2y=0 (1)

Consider the expression for y(x) .

y(x)=n=0cnxn (2)

Differentiate equation (2) with respect to t.

y(x)=n=0ncnxn1 (3)

Multiply x on both sides equation (3).

xy(x)=xn=0ncnxn1

xy(x)=n=0ncnxn (4)

Differentiate equation (3) with respect to t.

y(x)=n=0n(n1)cnxn2

y(x)=n=0(n+2)(n+1)cn+2xn (5)

Substitute equations (4) in (1),

n=0(n+2)(n+1)cn+2xnn=0ncnxn2(n=0cnxn)=0

n=0[(n+2)(n+1)cn+2(n+2)cn]xn=0 (6)

Equation (6) is true when the coefficients are 0. Therefore, the expressions are,

(n+2)(n+1)cn+2(n+2)cn=0

Re-arrange the equation.

cn+2=(n+2)cn(n+2)(n+1)

cn+2=cnn+1,n=0,1,2 (7)

Equation (7) is the recursion relation.

Solve the recursion relation by substituting different n values in equation (7).

By recursion relation, consider the expression.

Substitute 0 for n in equation (7),

c0+2=c00+1c2=c0

Substitute 2 for n in equation (7),

c2+2=c22+1c4=c23

Substitute c0 for c2 ,

c4=c01×3 (8)

Substitute 4 for n in equation (7),

c4+2=c44+1c6=c45

Substitute c21×3 for c4 ,

c6=c21×35=c21×3×5

Substitute c0 for c2 ,

c6=
