Logarithmic solutions of Bianchi's equation

Bateman, H.


The partial differential equation ∂^nV/∂x1∂x2…∂xn = MV was discussed by Bianchi(1) with the aid of the methods of Riemann and Picard. The results were extended to a more general equation which was also studied by Niccoletti.(2) The original equation, for a constant value of M, was studied later by Sibirani(3) in connection with a generalization of the Bessel function and some partial differential equations were listed which could be solved with the aid of this function. The case in which M is constant has also been studied by Chaundy(4) who gives some solutions in the form of definite integrals which we wish to obtain here with the aid of Murphy's theorem.
