I am curious if there are any examples of functions that are solutions to second order differential equations, that also parametrize an algebraic curve.
I am aware that the Weierstrass - Elliptic function satisfies a differential equation. We can then interpret this Differential Equation as an algebraic equation, with solutions found on elliptic curves. However this differential equations is of the first order.
So, are there periodic function(s) F ( x ) that satisfy a second order differential equation, such that we can say these parametrize an algebraic curve?
Could a Bessel function be one such solution?

The functions sin ( x ) and cos ( x ) solve a second-order differential equation, namely
u = u ,
and ( cos ( x ) , sin ( x ) ) parametrizes the algebraic curve x 2 + y 2 = 1

I have the differential equation
x 2 y ( x ) + 2 x y ( x ) = y 2 ( x )
With initial condition y(1)=1 and I want to solve this, by observation, we can see the LHS is x 2 y ( x ) but I am unfamiliar with tackling the RHS and was wondering where to go from here.
x 2 y ( x ) = y 2 ( x )   d x

Find all functions f(x) defined on ( π 2 , π 2 ) which has a primitive F(x) such that
f ( x ) + cos ( x ) F ( x ) = sin ( 2 x ) ( 1 + sin ( x ) ) 2 .
Hence F satisfies a first order linear differential equation in F with integrating factor e sin ( x )
So i have to integrate
2 e sin ( x ) sin ( x ) cos ( x ) ( 1 + sin ( x ) ) 2 .
By putting t = sin ( x ), it reduces to t e t ( 1 + t 2 ) but now I am not getting it.

My question is the following:
How should I factorize a differential equation from the first order but with higher degrees?
Imagine I have:
x 2 ( y ) 2 + x y y 6 y 2 = 0
Is it okay if I replace y with p and just solve the equation for p with x and y being constants?
Thanks in advance!
