Regularization of a Sturm-Liouville problem with an interior singularity using quasi-derivatives. (English) Zbl 0715.34043
Summary: A Sturm-Liouville problem with an interior singularity is studied. This problem arose in the study of the eddy motion of the atmosphere about zonally averaged winds. Of the infinitely many self-adjoint operators which can be associated with this problem one is singled out in a natural way. It may have physical significance.
