Finding solutions to inhomogenous 2nd order problem with function coefficients
Posted:

I have an equation of the form C(r) where C is a function of r and D and a are constants such that
C'' + (2/r)C'  D(f(r) + a)
I'm having problem solving this as f(r) is dependent on C in the following manner;
f = v(C)/ (C + k)
where v and C and constants. Does such a function have an analytical solution and what techniques / methods can I use to solve find C ?
Thanks in advance
