Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0for analytic \(y\) we have $$y=\sum_{n=0}^\infty a_n x^n\\y'=\sum_{n=0}^\infty na_nx^{n1}=\sum_{n=0}^\infty (n+1)a_{n+1}x^n\\y''=\sum_{n=0}^\infty n(n+1)a_{n+1}x^{n1}=\sum_{n=0}^\infty (n+1)(n+2)a_{n+2} x^n$$and $$xy'=x\sum_{n=0}^\infty (n+1)a_{n+1}x^n=\sum_{n=0}^\infty (n+1)a_{n+1}x^{n+1}=\sum_{n=0}^\infty na_nx^n\\xy''=x\sum_{n=0}^\infty (n+1)(n+2)a_{n+2} x^n=\sum_{n=0}^\infty (n+1)(n+2)a_{n+2}x^{n+1}\\\quad\quad=\sum_{n=0}^\infty n(n+1)a_{n+1} x^n$$

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so $$(x1)y''xy'+y=0\\\sum_{n=0}^\infty (n(n+1)a_{n+1}(n+1)(n+2)a_{n+2}na_n+a_n)=0\\n(n+1)a_{n+1}(n+1)(n+2)a_{n+2}+(1n)a_n=0\\a_{n+2}=\frac{1n}{n(n+1)}a_n+\frac{n}{n+2}a_{n+1}$$

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0now consider $$y(0)=\sum_{n=0}^\infty a_n (0)^n=a_0\\y'(0)=\sum_{n=0}^\infty (n+1)a_{n+1}(0)^n=(0+1)a_{0+1}=a_1$$

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so \(a_0=2,a_1=6\) now evaluate them manually according to the recursion to try and find a pattern

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oops, the recurrence should read: $$a_{n+2}=\frac{1n}{(n+1)(n+2)}a_n+\frac{n}{n+2}a_{n+1}$$

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0anyways $$\begin{array}{ccc}n&a_n\\\hline 0&2\\1&6\\2&1\\3&\frac13\\4&\frac1{12}\\5&\dots \end{array}$$
