restart;
ode:=diff(y(x), x, x)-y(x)*(a^2*x^(2*n)-1);
dsolve(ode,y(x));

gives

     DESol({diff(_Y(x), x, x)+(-a^2*x^(2*n)+1)*_Y(x)}, {_Y(x)})

as answer. I read the help on DESol, but what does the above actually mean? Where is the solution of the ode? It just returned the ode back to me. Can I consider that Maple did not solve this ode in this case?

from help

"DESol is a data structure to represent the solution of a differential equation. It is to dsolve as RootOf is to solve."
