I tried to solve Lane-Emden equation, as model of white dwarf,
$$
\frac{d^2x}{dt^2} +\frac2 t \frac{dx}{dt} + x^n = 0, ~~~~ where ~~~~n=\frac 3 2
$$
and I have some troubles in sagemath.
I am using following code:
T = ode_solver()
def f_1(t,y): return [y[1],-2/t*y[1]-y[0]^(3/2)]
T.function = f_1
def j_1(t,y): return [[0, 1], [-3/2*y[1]^(1/2), -2/t], [0,2*y[1]/t^2]] #Jacobian matrix
T.jacobian = j_1
T.algorithm = "rk8pd"
T.ode_solve(y_0=[1,0], t_span=[0,10], num_points=1000)
f = T.interpolate_solution()
plot(f, 0, 10)
Above code is very similar of the example in sagemath reference: Van der Pol equation
Both equations (Lane-Emden and Van der Pol) are non-linear differential equation, therefore, are not easy to solve.
I don't know where comes to problem in above codes, can someone give me a help?

I was wondering about SAGE capabilities in solving coupled systems of difference equations; I don't see any z-transform capabilities so I think this may not be possible yet.
