desingularize a linear differential operator
Desingularize(L, Dx, x, func)
polynomial in Dx with coefficients that are polynomials in x
variable, denoting the differential operator w.r.t. x
Let L be a linear differential operator, given as a polynomial in Dx with univariate polynomial coefficients in x over a field k of characteristic zero. The command Desingularize(L,Dx,x) constructs a linear differential operator R such that any solution of L⁡y=0 is also a solution of R⁡y=0 and R has no apparent singularities. The operator R is said to maximally desingularize L, and will be right divisible by L over the field k⁡x.
An apparent singularity is a point p where the leading coefficient of L vanishes, yet p is not a pole of any holomorphic solution of L⁡y=0. In this case there will exist d linearly independent solutions at p where d is the order of L.
A function may be specified using the optional argument func. It is applied to the coefficients of the collected result. Often simplify or factor will be used.
