Ritt’s question on the Wronskian

David G. Mead and B. D. McLemore

Vol. 35 (1970), No. 2, 467–472
Abstract

Among the questions for investigation at the end of his Colloquium Publication, Differential Algebra, J. F. Ritt suggested the study of special differential ideals, in particular those generated by the Wronskians. In this paper we obtain a test for an element to be a member of a certain (algebraic) ideal, and apply this result to the differential ideal generated by the second order Wronskian.
