Abstract

Let $$\phi_{i}^{*}$$ and $$\psi_{i} (i=0,1,...,n-1)$$ are the solutions of the equations $$\boxdot^{2} - \frac{n-1}{r^{2}}\phi_{i}=0$$ and $$\boxdot^{2} \psi_{i}=0$$ respectively. In this paper it is shown that if $$u$$ and $$v$$ are satisfied by the equations $$(\boxdot^{2} - \frac{n-1}{r^{2}})^{n} u = 0$$ and $$\boxdot^{2n} v =0$$ respectively then $$u$$ and $$v$$ have the representations $$u=\phi_{0}^{*} + t\phi_{1}^{*} + ... + t^{n-1}\phi_{n-1}^{*}$$ and $$v = \psi_{0} + t\psi+{1} + ... + t^{n-1}\psi_{n-1}$$ where $$\boxdot^{2} = \frac{1}{r^{n-1}}\frac{\partial}{\partial r} (r^{n-1} \frac{\partial}{\partial r}) - \frac{\partial^{2}}{\partial r^{2}}$$.
