• 9.1: Frobenius’ Method
The Frobenius method is a method to identify an infinite series solution for a second-order ordinary differential equation.
• 9.2: Singular Points
Typically, the Frobenius method identifies two independent solutions provided that the indicial equation's roots are not separated by an integer.
• 9.3: Special Cases
For the two special cases I will just give the solution. It requires a substantial amount of algebra to study these two cases.
