Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0for example, the DE i have been toying around with is x^2y'' + (x+x^2)y' + y' = 0. a sort of variation on the stock cauchyeuler x^2y'' + xy' +y = 0 equation. the problem is finding the solution as the sum of the real and imaginary parts of the DE. the recurrence relation is nightmarishly defined and mired in complex notation. is this common?
