The purpose of this thesis is to investigate and establish Sturm- Liouville properties for special eigenfunctions which are expressed in determinant form. In particular, a special case is presented where the elements of the determinant are Legendre polynomials. This type of determinant has a probability background dealing in birth and death processes. The method of analysis used in this thesis is a new approach to solving this specific example. This investigation involves systems of differential equations and Prufer"s analysis in the phase plane. The following are new results obtained in addition to solving the special case mentioned above. Special determinants of hypergeometric functions also possess Sturm-Liouville properties. As a special case, a different proof of Turan"s Inequality is provided. Finally, several theorems are presented for Sturm-Liouville systems of differential equations with polynomial coefficients.

Problems 1–4 of Section are Sturm–Liouville problems. (Problem 5 isn’t, although some authors use a definition of Sturm-Liouville problem that does include it.) We were able to find the eigenvalues of Problems explicitly because in each problem the coefficients in the boundary conditions satisfy \(\alpha\beta=0\) and \(\rho\delta.

In mathematics, the spectral theory of ordinary differential equations is the part of spectral theory concerned with the determination of the spectrum and eigenfunction expansion associated with a linear ordinary differential his dissertation Hermann Weyl generalized the classical Sturm–Liouville theory on a finite closed interval to second order differential operators with.

Moreover, Proposition showed that any SOLDE can be transformed into a form in which the first-derivative term is absent. By dividing the DE by the coefficient of the second-derivative term if necessary, the study of the most general second-order linear differential operators boils down to that of the so-called Sturm-Liouville (S-L Cited by: 1.

The chapter highlights that the regular Sturm–Liouville equation, written in the form d 2 z/dt 2 − r(t)z + λz = 0 with the boundary conditions z(0) = z(L) = 0 has the asymptotic eigenvalues and eigenfunctions.

It is shown that using the known eigenfunctions and the solutions to an initial value problem, the new first n eigenfunctions and the new potential are found by solving a system of non-singular, linear, algebraic equations.

The new separated, homogeneous boundary conditions and the remaining eigenfunctions are found. 1) then v is an eigenvector of the linear transformation A and the scale factor λ is the eigenvalue corresponding to that eigenvector.

Equation (1) is the eigenvalue equation for the matrix A. Equation (1) can be stated equivalently as (A − λ I) v = 0, {\displaystyle (A-\lambda I)v=0,} (2) where I is the n by n identity matrix and 0 is the zero vector. Eigenvalues and the characteristic.
