Description

• 

The polynomial_series_sol command returns one formal power series solution or a set of formal power series solutions of the given linear ordinary differential equation with polynomial coefficients. The ODE must be either homogeneous or inhomogeneous with a right-hand side that is a polynomial, a rational function, or a "nice" power series (see LODEstruct) in the independent variable x.

• 

If ode is an expression, then it is equated to zero.

• 

The routine returns an error message if the differential equation ode does not satisfy the following conditions.

– 

ode must be linear in var

– 

ode must have polynomial coefficients in x

– 

ode must be homogeneous or have a right-hand side that is rational or a "nice" power series in x

– 

The coefficients of ode must be either rational numbers or depend rationally on one or more parameters.

• 

A homogeneous linear ordinary differential equation with coefficients that are polynomials in x has a linear space of formal power series solutions n=0vnPnx where P[n]x is one of xan, xann!, 1xn, or 1xnn!, a is the expansion point, and the sequence vn satisfies a homogeneous linear recurrence. In the case of an inhomogeneous equation with a right-hand side that is a "nice" power series, vn satisfies an inhomogeneous linear recurrence.

• 

The routine selects such formal power series solutions where vn is a polynomial for all sufficiently large n.

Options

• 

x=a or 'point'=a

  

Specifies the expansion point in the case of a homogeneous equation or an inhomogeneous equation with rational right-hand side. The default is a=0. It can be an algebraic number, depending rationally on some parameters, or . In the case of a "nice" series right-hand side the expansion point is given by the right-hand side and cannot be changed.

  

If this option is given, then the command returns one formal power series solution at a with polynomial coefficients if it exists; otherwise, it returns NULL. If a is not given, it returns a set of formal power series solutions with polynomial coefficients for all possible points that are determined by Slode[candidate_points](ode,var,'type'='polynomial').

• 

'free'=C

  

Specifies a base name C to use for free variables C[0], C[1], etc. The default is the global name  _C. Note that the number of free variables may be less than the order of the given equation if the expansion point is singular.

• 

'index'=n

  

Specifies a name for the summation index in the power series. The default value is the global name _n.
