Abstract:

The problem can be reduced to an eigenvalue problem of a fourth order ordinary differential equation in a semi-infinite region. The series that satisfied the boundary condition at infinity is asymptotic, which cannot satisfy the boundary condition at a finite point and fails to yield the eigenvalues. Theoretically this difficulty can be overcome, as explained in this report, by converting the divergent asymptotic series to a convergent factorial series.
