The equation studied is u 00 + n1 r u 0 + "u u 0 = 0; with boundary conditions u (1) = 0; u (1) = 1. This model equation has been studied by many authors since it was introduced in the 1950s by P. A. Lagerstrom. We use an elementary approach to show that there is an innnite series solution which is uniformly convergent on 1 r < 1: The rst few terms are(More)

Nanoscale motors like kinesins tow organelles and other cargo on microtubules or filaments, have a role separating the mitotic spindle during the cell cycle, and perform many other functions. The simplest description gives rise(More)
In his book "Th6orie des Perturbations et M6thodes Asymptotiques" V.P.MAsLOV has given an ingenious approximation method which overcomes certain well known difficulties in the classical WKB approach. One of these difficulties is connected with the singularities of the amplitudes of the wave function which appear at turning points of a classical motion.(More)
