Which method would I use here? The boundary conditions are \[y(a)=y(a)=1 \]

i think reduction of order with\[p=\dot y\]will lead us to something maybe?

just note that\[\ddot y=p\dot p \]

\[ \dot{p}=\frac{ dp }{ dx}= \frac{d^2y}{dx^2}=\ddot{y} \]Surely?

[yy']'=yy''+y'^2 so just difference in sign. Maybe it is a derivative of some quotient.

make p a function of y\[\ddot y=\frac{dp}{dx}=\frac{dp}{dy}\frac{dy}{dx}=p \dot p\] and what @myko mentioned can be a good start too

actually that is\[\ddot y=\frac{dp}{dx}=\frac{dp}{dy}\frac{dy}{dx}=p \dot p_y\]

Very nice, but how does that help?
