Asymptotics of Sturm-Liouville eigenvalues for problems on a finite interval with one limit-circle singularity, I*

Abstract
Synopsis

Asymptotic formulae for the positive eigenvalues of a limit-circle eigenvalue problem for –y” + qy = λy on the finite interval (0, b] are obtained for potentials q which are limit circle and non-oscillatory at x = 0, under the assumption xq(x)∈L1(0,6). Potentials of the form q(x) = C/xk, 0<fc<2, are included. In the case where k = 1, an independent check based on the limit-circle theory of Fulton and an asymptotic expansion of the confluent hypergeometric function, M(a, b; z), verifies the main result.
