A new method for solving a class of singular two-point boundary value problems. (English) Zbl 1161.65060

A solution for the two-point boundary value problem
\[ Lu\equiv u^{\prime\prime}(x)+(k/x)u^{\prime}(x)+b(x)u(x) =f(x) \]
with conditions \( u\prime(0)=0, u(1)= 1 \) is presented in form of a series in the special space \(W=W_{2}^{3}[0,1]\), named reproducing kernel space. The construction of an orthonormal system in \( W \) uses the adjoint operator \(L^{*}\), that is why not simple. This approximate method has an analytical form , but is not numerical.
