A general construction of linear differential equations with solutions of prescribed properties. (English) Zbl 1054.34018

Summary: Effective constructions of ordinary linear differential equations of arbitrary order are presented that give equations with solutions of prescribed qualitative properties, like solutions in the classes \(L^p\), converging to zero or bounded solutions, etc. Connections with transformations of equations and distribution of the zeros of solutions are considered as well. Results generalize those obtained for the second-order linear differential equations.
