1) ?? Didnt you see DvDM's reply to me? He agreed that what I put down is a solution to r r''' + 3 r'' r' = 0.
Try it. You can do it by direct substitution!! TRY IT !!
2) You seem to impose that r'' must equal zero. Why? It need not be.
3) Now, you seem to have also misinterpreted (your incapacity to deduce) the notation of s(...). DvDM did understand it. You didnt read those who replied to me? That is quite sloppy on your part.
4) Try again.
