Title: Sums of zeros of solutions to second order ODE
with non-polynomial coefficients
Author: Michael I. Gil (Ben Gurion Univ. of the Negev, Israel)
Abstract:
We consider the equation $y''=F(z)y$ ($z\in\mathbb{C}$)
with an entire function $F$ satisfying the condition
$$
|F(z)|\le A \exp \big(\frac{|z|^\rho}{\rho}\big)\quad (\rho\ge 1,\; A=\text{const}>0).
$$
Let $z_k(y)$, $k=1, 2, \dots $ be the zeros of a solution $y(z)$
to the above equation. Bounds for the sums
$$
\sum_{k=1}^j \frac{1}{|z_k(y)|} \quad (j=1, 2, \dots)
$$
are established. Some applications of these bounds are also considered.
