# Asymptotics for Solutions of Linear Differential Equations Having Turning Points with Applications

Share this page
*S. Strelitz*

Asymptotics are built for the solutions \(y_j(x,\lambda)\),
\(y_j^{(k)}(0,\lambda)=\delta_{j\,n-k}\), \(0\le j,k+1\le n\) of
the equation \[L(y)=\lambda p(x)y,\quad x\in [0,1],
\qquad\qquad\qquad(1)\] where
\(L(y)\) is a linear differential operator of whatever order \(n\ge
2\) and \(p(x)\) is assumed to possess a finite number of turning
points. The established asymptotics are afterwards applied to the study of:

1) the existence of infinite eigenvalue sequences for various multipoint
boundary problems posed on Equation (1),
especially as \(n=2\) and \(n=3\) (let us be aware that the same
method can be successfully applied on many occasions in case \(n>3\)
too) and

2) asymptotical distribution of the corresponding eigenvalue sequences
on the complex plane.
