On a transformation operator

  • I. M. Guseinov


We prove the existence of a transformation operator that takes the solution of the equationy″=λ2ny to the solution of the equation
$$y'' - \left( {q_0 (x) + \lambda q_1 (x) + \cdots + \lambda ^{n - 1} q_{n - 1} (x)} \right)y = \lambda ^{2n} y$$

with a condition at infinity. Some properties of the kernel of this operator are studied.
