### Proof for strict separation of the eigenvalues ​of a Jacobian matrix with its minors

Let's consider a jacobi matrix (or tridiagonal symetric matrix where adjacent diagonals coefficients are strictly positive) : \begin{equation} T_n = \begin{bmatrix} a_1 & b_1 & 0 & \...

### An indefinite integral containing functions that are solutions to a 2nd order linear ODE

I am trying to evaluate an indefinite integral of the form $\int \frac{dz}{A u_1^2 + Bu_2^2 + Cu_1u_2}$ where $u_1$ and $u_2$ are two independent solutions to the ODE $u'' + F(z)u = 0$ This ...

### Sturm Liouville problems for non-classical orthogonal polynomials

It is known that for the classical orthogonal-polynomials there exist a set of Sturm Liouville problems. E.g. , the Hermite polynomial of order $n$ is a solution of $$y''(x) -xy'(x)+ny(x)=0 \, .$$ My ...

### References for the Sturm oscillation theorem

What is the most general form of the Sturm oscillation theorem? So far I have only seen cases that treat either unbounded intervals or weighted $L^2$ spaces. I would be especially interested in ...

### $n$-th derivative of the prolate spheroidal function

For a given real number $c>0$ define functions $\left(\psi_{k,c}(\cdot)\right)_{k\ge0}$, as an eigenfunctions of the Sturm-Liouville operators $L_c$ defined  L_c(\psi)=(1-x^2)\frac{d^2\psi}{dx^2}...
