general a result that is extremely important. Because the integrand contains nonanalytic points along and inside the region enclosed by our two curves, as shown by the CauchyRiemann equations, the results depend upon the path taken. Since complex integrations often involve integrands that have nonanalytic points, many line integrations depend upon the contour taken. Example 1.4.2 Let us integrate the entire function f(z)=z2 along the two paths from z=0 to z=2+i shown in Figure 1.4.2. For the first integration, x=2y

Figure 1.4.3: Contour used in Example 1.4.3. In this problem we obtained the same results from two different contours of integration. Exploring other contours, we would find that the results are always the same; the integration is path-independent. But what makes these results path-independent while the integration in Example 1.4.1 was not? Perhaps it is the fact that the integrand is analytic everywhere on the complex plane and there are no nonanalytic points. We will explore this later. Finally, an important class of line integrals involves closed contours. We denote this special subclass of line integrals by placing a circle on the integral sign: the following examples: Example 1.4.3 Let us integrate f(z)=z around the closed contour shown in Figure 1.4.3. From Figure 1.4.3, (1.4.18) Consider now

Example 1.4.4 Let us integrate f(z)=1/(z a) around any circle centered on z=a. The Cauchy-Riemann equations show that f(z) is a meromorphic function. It is analytic everywhere except at the isolated singularity z=a. If we introduce polar coordinates by letting z a=re i and dz=ire id ,
(1.4.22)
Note that the integrand becomes undefined at z=a. Furthermore, the answer is independent of the size of the circle. Our example suggests that when we have a closed contour integration it is the behavior of the function within the contour rather than the exact shape of the closed contour that is of importance. We will return to this point in later sections. Problems 1. Evaluate around the circle |z|=1 taken in the counterclockwise direction.

Complex Variables 1.5 THE CAUCHY-GOURSAT THEOREM
29
In the previous section we showed how to evaluate line integrations by brute-force reduction to real-valued integrals. In general, this direct approach is quite difficult and we would like to apply some of the deeper properties of complex analysis to work smarter. In the remaining portions of this chapter we introduce several theorems that will do just that.
Figure 1.5.1: Diagram used in proving the Cauchy-Goursat theorem. If we scan over the examples worked in the previous section, we see considerable differences when the function was analytic inside and on the contour and when it was not. We may formalize this anecdotal evidence into the following theorem: Cauchy-Goursat theorem2: Let f(z) be analytic in a domain D and let C be a simple Jordan cur e3 inside D so that f(z) is analytic on and inside of C. Then Proof: Let C denote theut those that we can only solve numerically. Problems Find the order and state whether the following ordinary differential equations are linear or nonlinear: 1. y /y=x2+x 2. y2y =x+3 3. sin(y )=5y 4. y =y 5. y =3x2 6. (y3) =1 3y 7. y =y3 8. y 4y +5y=sin(x) 9. y +xy=cos(y ) 10. (2x+y)dx+(x 3y) dy=0 11. (1+x2)y =(1+y)2 12. yy =x(y2+1) 13. y +y+y2=x+ex 14. y +cos(x)y +y=0 15. x2y +x1/2(y )3+y=ex 16. y +xy +ey=x2
2.2 SEPARATION OF VARIABLES The simplest method of solving a first-order ordinary differential equation, if it works, is separation of variables. It has the advantage of handling both linear and nonlinear problems, especially autonomous equations.1 From integral calculus, we already met this technique when we solved the first-order differential equation
First-Order Ordinary Differential Equations 75 (2.2.1)
By multiplying both sides of (2.2.1) by dx, we obtain dy=f(x) dx. (2.2.2)
At this point we note that the left side of (2.2.2) contains only y while the right side is purely a function of x. Hence, we can integrate directly and find that
(2.2.3)
For this technique to work, we must be able to rewrite the differential equation so that all of the y dependence appears on one side of the equation while the x dependence is on the other. Finally we must be able to carry out the integration on both sides of the equation. One of the interesting aspects of our analysis is the appearance of the arbitrary constant C in (2.2.3). To evaluate this constant we need more information. The most common method is to require that the dependent variable give a particular value for a particular value of x. Because the independent variable x often denotes time, this condition is usually called an initial condition, even in cases when the independent variable is not time. Example 2.2.1 Let us solve the ordinary differential equation (2.2.4)
Because we can separate variables by rewriting (2.2.4) as
(2.2.5) its solution is simply
1 An autonomous equation is a differential equation where the independent variable does not explicitly appear in the equation, such as y =f(y).

(2.2.6)
by direct integration. Example 2.2.2 Let us solve (2.2.7)
subject to the initial condition y(0)=1. Multiplying (2.2.7) by dx, we find that dy+y dx=xexy dx,
(2.2.8)
or
(2.2.9)
A quick check shows that the left side of (2.2.9) contains only the dependent variable y while the right side depends solely on x and we have separated the variables onto one side or the other. Finally, integrating both sides of (2.2.9), we have ln(y)=xex ex x+C.
(2.2.10)
Since y(0)=1, C=1 and y(x)=exp[(x 1)ex+1 x].
(2.2.11)
In addition to the tried-and-true method of solving ordinary differential equation by hand, scientific computational packages such as MATLAB provide symbolic toolboxes that are
First-Order Ordinary Differential Equations 77 designed to do the work for you. In the present case, typing
dsolve('Dy+y=x*exp(x)*y','y(0)=1','x')
yields
ans = 1/exp( 1)*exp( x+x*exp(x) exp(x))
which is equivalent to (2.2.11). Our success here should not be overly generalized. Sometimes these toolboxes give the answer in a rather obscure form or they fail completely. For example, in the previous example, MATLAB gives the answer
ans = lambertw((1og (x) +C1)*exp( 1)) 1
The MATLAB function lambertw is Lambert's W function, where w=lambertw(x) is the solution to wew=x. Using this definition, we can construct the solution as expressed in (2.2.6). Example 2.2.3 Consider the nonlinear differential equation x2y +y2=0. (2.2.12)
Separating variables, we find that (2.2.13)
Equation (2.2.13) shows the wide variety of solutions possible for an ordinary differential equation. For example, if we require that y(0)=0, then there are infinitely many different solutions satisfying this initial condition because C can take on any value. On the other hand, if we require that y(0)=1, there is no solution because we cannot choose any constant C such that y(0)=1. Finally, if we have the initial condition that y(1)=2, then there is only one possible solution corresponding to Consider now the trial solution y=0. Does it satisfy (2.2.12)? Yes, it does. On the other hand, there is no choice of C which yields this solution. The solution y=0 is called a singular solution to (2.2.12). Singular solutions are solutions to a differential equation which cannot be obtained from a solution with arbitrary constants.

yields Figure 2.2.1 which illustrates (2.2.13) when C= 2, 0, 2, and 4. The previous example showed that first-order ordinary differential equations may have a unique solution, no solution, or many solutions. From a complete study2 of these equations, we have the following theorem:
2 The proof of the existence and uniqueness of first-order ordinary differential equations is beyond the scop of this book. See Ince, E.L., 1956: Ordinary Differential Equations. Dover Publications, Inc., Chapter 3.
First-Order Ordinary Differential Equations 79 Theorem: Existence and Uniqueness Suppose some real-valued function f(x, y) is continuous on some rectangle in the xy-plane containing the point (a, b) in its interior. Then the initial alue problem
(2.2.14)
has at least one solution on the same open interval I containing the point x=a. Furthermore, if the partial derivati e f/ y is continuous on that rectangle, then the solution is unique on some (perhaps smaller) open inter al I0 containing the point x=a. Example 2.2.4 Consider the initial-value problem y =3y1/3/2 with y(0)=1. Here f(x, y)=3y1/3/2 and fy=y 2/3/2. Because fy is continuous over a small rectangle containing the point (0, 1), there is a unique solution around x=0, namely y=(x+1)3/2, which satisfies the differential equation and the initial condition. On the other hand, if the initial condition reads y(0)=0, then fy is not continuous on any rectangle containing the point (0, 0) and there is no unique solution. For example, two solutions to this initial-value problem, valid on any open interval that includes x=0, are y1(x)=x3/2 and
(2.2.15)
Example 2.2.5: Hydrostatic equation Consider an atmosphere where its density varies only in the vertical direction. The pressure at the surface equals the weight per unit horizontal area of all of the air from sea level to outer space. As you move upward, the amount of air remaining above decreases and so does the pressure. This is why we experience pressure sensations in our ears when ascending or descending in an elevator or airplane. If we rise the small distance dz, there must be a corresponding small decrease in the pressure, dp. This pressure drop must equal the loss of weight in the column per unit area, g dz. Therefore, the pressure is governed by the differential equation dp= g dz, commonly called the hydrostatic equation. (2.2.16)
80 Advanced Engineering Mathematics with MATLAB To solve (2.2.16), we must express in terms of pressure. For example, in an isothermal atmosphere at constant temperature Ts, the ideal gas law gives p= RTs, where R is the gas constant. Substituting this into (2.2.16) and separating variables yields
(2.2.17)
Integrating (2.2.17) gives
(2.2.18)
Thus, the pressure (and density) of an isothermal atmosphere decreases exponentially with height. In particular, it decreases by e
1
over the distance RTs/g, the so-called "scale height."
Example 2.2.6: Terminal velocity As an object moves through a fluid, its viscosity resists the motion. Let us find the motion of a mass m as it falls toward the earth under the force of gravity when the drag varies as the square of the velocity. From Newton's second law, the equation of motion is
(2.2.19)
where
denotes the velocity, g is the gravitational acceleration, and CD is the drag
coefficient. We choose the coordinate system so that a downward velocity is positive. Equation (2.2.19) can be solved using the technique of separation of variables if we change from time t as the independent variable to the distance traveled x from the point of release. This modification yields the differential equation
(2.2.20)
First-Order Ordinary Differential Equations 81 since =dx/dt. Separating the variables leads to
(2.2.21)
or
(2.2.22)
where k=CD/m and =0 for x=0. Taking the inverse of the natural logarithm, we finally obtain
(2.2.23)
Thus, as the distance that the object falls increases, so does the velocity and it eventually approaches a constant value commonly known as the terminal velocity. Because the drag coefficient CD varies with the superficial area of the object while the mass depends on the volume, k increases as an object becomes smaller, resulting in a smaller terminal velocity. Consequently, although a human being of normal size will acquire a terminal velocity of approximately 120 mph, a mouse, on the other hand, can fall any distance without injury. Example 2.2.7: Interest rate Consider a bank account that has been set up to pay out a constant rate of P dollars per year for the purchase of a car. This account has the special feature that it pays an annual interest rate of r on the current balance. We would like to know the balance in the account at any time t. Although financial transactions occur at regularly spaced intervals, an excellent approximation can be obtained by treating the amount in the account x(t) as a continuous function of time governed by the equation x(t+ t) x(t)+rx(t) t P t, (2.2.24)
where we have assumed that both the payment and interest are paid in time increments of t. As the time between payments tends to zero, we obtain the first-order ordinary differential equation
82 Advanced Engineering Mathematics with MATLAB (2.2.25)
If we denote the initial deposit into this account by x(0), then at any subsequent time x(t)=x(0)ert P (ert 1)/r.
(2.2.26)
Although we could compute x(t) as a function of P, r, and x(0), there are only three separate cases that merit our close attention. If P/r>x(0), then the account will eventually equal zero at rt=ln{P/[P rx(0)]}. On the other hand, if P/r<x(0), the amount of money in the account will grow without bound. Finally, the case x(0)=P/r is the equilibrium case where the amount of money paid out balances the growth of money due to interest so that the account always has the balance of P/r. Example 2.2.8: Steady-state flow of heat When the inner and outer walls of a body, for example the inner and outer walls of a house, are maintained at different constant temperatures, heat will flow from the warmer wall to the colder one. When each surface parallel to a wall has attained a constant temperature, the flow of heat has reached a steady state. In a steady state flow of heat, each surface parallel to a wall, because its temperature is now constant, is referred to as an isothermal surface. Isothermal surfaces at different distances from an interior wall will have different temperatures. In many cases the temperature of an isothermal surface is only a function of its distance x from the interior wall, and the rate of flow of heat Q in a unit time across such a surface is proportional both to the area A of the surface and to dT/dx, where T is the temperature of the isothermal surface. Hence,
(2.2.27)
where is called the thermal conductivity of the material between the walls. In place of a flat wall, let us consider a hollow cylinder whose inner and outer surfaces are located at r=r1 and r=r2, respectively. At steady state, (2.2.27) becomes
(2.2.28)
assuming no heat generation within the cyli means: M(tx, ty)=tnM(x, y) and N(tx, ty)=tnN(x, y). For example, the ordinary differential equation (x2+y2) dx+(x2 xy) dy=0 (2.3.2)
is a homogeneous equation because both coefficients are homogeneous functions of degree 2: M(tx, ty)=t2x2+t2y2=t2(x2+y2)=t2M(x, y), and N(tx, ty)=t2x2 t2xy=t2(x2 xy)=t2N(x, y). (2.3.4) (2.3.3)
Why is it useful to recognize homogeneous ordinary differential equations? Let us set y=ux so that (2.3.2) becomes
(x2+u2x2) dx+(x2 ux2)(u dx+x du)=0.

Then the total derivative is (2.4.1) If the solution to a first-order ordinary differential equation can be written as f(x, y)=c, then the corresponding differential equation is M(x, y)dx+N(x, y) dy=0. (2.4.2)

if M(x, y) and N(x, y) and their first-order partial derivatives are continuous. Consequently, if we can show that our ordinary differential equation is exact, we can integrate
First-Order Ordinary Differential Equations 93 (2.4.4)
to find the solution f(x, y)=c. Example 2.4.1 Let us check and see if [y2 cos(x) 3x2y 2x] dx+[2y sin(x) x3+ln(y)] dy=0 (2.4.5)
is exact. Since M (x, y)=y2 cos(x) 3x2y 2x, and N(x, y)=2y sin(x) x3+ln(y), we find that
(2.4.6)
and
(2.4.7)
Because Nx=My, (2.4.5) is an exact equation. Example 2.4.2 Because (2.4.5) is an exact equation, let us find its solution. Starting with
(2.4.8)
direct integration gives f(x, y)=y2sin(x) x3y x2+g(y). Substituting (2.4.9) into the equation fy=N, we obtain (2.4.9)
94 Advanced Engineering Mathematics with MATLAB (2.4.10)
Thus, g (y)=ln(y), or g(y)=y ln(y) y+C. Therefore, the solution to the ordinary differential equation (2.4.5) is y2 sin(x) x3y x2+y ln(y) y=c. (2.4.11)
Example 2.4.3 Consider the differential equation (x+y)dx+x ln(x) dy=0 (2.4.12)
on the interval (0, ). A quick check shows that (2.4.12) is not exact since (2.4.13)
However, if we multiply (2.4.12) by 1/x so that it becomes (2.4.14)
then this modified differential equation is exact because (2.4.15)
Therefore, the solution to (2.4.12) is x+y ln(x)=C. (2.4.16)
This mysterious function that converts an inexact differential equation into an exact one is called an integrating factor. Unfortunately there is no general rule for finding one unless the equation is linear.

2.5 LINEAR EQUATIONS In the case of first-order ordinary differential equations, any differential equation of the form (2.5.1)
is said to be linear. Consider now the linear ordinary differential equation (2.5.2)
96 Advanced Engineering Mathematics with MATLAB or (2.5.3) Let us now multiply (2.5.3) by x 4. (How we knew that it should be x 4 and not something else will be addressed shortly.) This magical factor is called an integrating factor because (2.5.3) can be rewritten (2.5.4)
or (2.5.5)
Thus, our introduction of the integrating factor x 4 allows us to use the differentiation product rule in reverse and collapse the right side of (2.5.4) into a single x derivative of a function of x times y. If we had selected the incorrect integrating factor, the right side would not have collapsed into this useful form. With (2.5.5), we may integrate both sides and find that (2.5.6)
or (2.5.7)
or y=x4(x 1)ex+Cx4. (2.5.8)
From this example, it is clear that finding the integrating factor is crucial to solving firstorder, linear, ordinary differential equations. To do this, let us first rewrite (2.5.1) by dividing through by a1(x) so that it becomes
First-Order Ordinary Differential Equations 97
(2.5.9)
or dy+[P(x)y Q(x)] dx=0.
(2.5.10)
If we denote the integrating factor by (x), then (x)dy+ (x)[P(x)y Q(x)] dx=0. (2.5.11)
Clearly, we can solve (2.5.11) by direct integration if it is an exact equation. If this is true, then
(2.5.12)
or
(2.5.13)
Integrating (2.5.13),
(2.5.14)
Note that we do not need a constant of integration in (2.5.14) because (2.5.11) is unaffected by a constant multiple. It is also interesting that the integrating factor only depends on P(x) and not Q(x). We can summarize our findings in the following theorem. Theorem: Linear First-Order Equation If the functions P(x) and Q(x) are continuous on the open interval I containing the point x0, then the initial-value problem
98 Advanced Engineering Mathematics with MATLAB
has a unique solution y(x) on I, given by
with an appropriate value of C and (x) is defined by (2.5.14). The procedure for implementing this theorem is as follows: Step 1: If necessary, divide the differential equation by the coefficient of dy/dx. This gives an equation of the form (2.5.9) and we can find P(x) by inspection. Step 2: Find the integrating factor by (2.5.14). Step 3: Multiply the equation created in Step 1 by the integrating factor. Step 4:Run the derivative product rule in reverse, collapsing the left side of the differential equation into the form d[ (x)y]/dx. If you are unable to do this, you have made a mistake. Step 5: Integrate both sides of the differential equation to find the solution. The following examples illustrate the technique. Example 2.5.1 Let us solve the linear, first-order ordinary differential equation xy y=4x ln(x). (2.5.15)
We begin by dividing through by x to convert (2.5.15) into its canonical form. This yields (2.5.16)
From (2.5.16), we see that P(x)=1/x. Consequently, from (2.5.14), we have that (2.5.17)
Multiplying (2.5.16) by the integrating factor, we find that (2.5.18)
First-Order Ordinary Differential Equations 99 or (2.5.19)
Integrating both sides of (2.5.19),
(2.5.20)
Multiplying (2.5.20) through by x yields the general solution y=2x ln2(x)+Cx.
(2.5.21)
Although it is nice to have a closed form solution, considerable insight can be gained by graphing the solution for a wide variety of initial conditions. To illustrate this, consider the MATLAB script
clear % use symbolic toolbox to solve (2.5.15) y = dsolve('x*Dy y=4*x*log(x)' , 'y(1) = c','x'); % take the symbolic version of the solution % and convert it into executable code solution = inline(vectorize(y),'x','c'); close all; axes; hold on % now plot the solution for a wide variety of initial conditions x = 0.1:0.1:2; for c = 2:4 if (c= = 2) plot(x, solution(x,c),'.'); end if (c= = 1) plot(x, solution(x, c),'o'); end if (c= = 0) plot(x, solution(x, c),'x'); end if (c= = 1) plot(x, solution(x, c),'+'); end if (c= = 2) plot(x, solution(x, c),'*'); end if (c= = 3) plot(x, solution(x, c),'s'); end if (c= = 4) plot(x, solution(x, c),'d'); end end axis tight xlabel ('x','Fontsize ',20); ylabel ('y','Fontsize',20) legend ('c = 2','c = 1','c = 0','c = 1',... 'c = 2','c = 3','c = 4'); legend boxoff
This script does two things. First, it uses MATLAB's symbolic toolbox to solve (2.5.15). Alternatively we could have used (2.5.21) and introduced it as a function. The second portion of this script plots this solution for e slope equals f(x, y). This graphical representation is known as the direction field or slope field of (2.6.1). Starting with the initial point (x0, y0), we can then construct the solution curve by extending the initial line segment in such a manner that the tangent of the solution curve parallels the direction field at each point through which the curve passes. Before the days of computers, it was common to first draw lines of constant slope (isoclines) or f(x, y)=c. Because along any isocline all of the line segments had the same
112 Advanced Engineering Mathematics with MATLAB slope, considerable computational savings were realized. Today, computer software exists which perform these graphical computations with great speed. To illustrate this technique, consider the ordinary differential equation (2.6.2)

we show in Figure 2.6.1 the directional field associated with (2.6.2) along with some of the particular solutions. Clearly the vectors are parallel to the various particular solutions. Therefore, without knowing the solution, we could choose an arbitrary initial condition and sketch its behavior at subsequent times. The same holds true for nonlinear equations. Rest points and autonomous equations In the case of autonomous differential equations (equations where the independent variable does not explicitly appear in the equation), considerable information can be gleaned from a graphical analysis of the equation.
First-Order Ordinary Differential Equations 113 Consider the nonlinear ordinary differential equation (2.6.4)
Figure 2.6.1: The direction field for (2.6.2). The solid lines are plots of the solution with various initial conditions.
The time derivative x vanishes at x= 1, 0, 1. Consequently, if x(0)=0, x(t) will remain zero forever. Similarly, if x(0)=1 or x(0)= 1, then x(t) will equal 1 or 1 for all time. For this reason, values of x for which the derivative x is zero are called rest points, equilibrium points, or critical points of the differential equation. The behavior of solutions near rest points is often of considerable interest. For example, what happens to the solution when x is near one of the rest points x= 1, 0, 1? Consider the point x=0. For x slightly greater than zero, x <0. For x slightly less than 0, x >0. Therefore, for any initial value of x near x=0, x will tend to zero. In this case, the point x=0 is an asymptotically stable critical point because whenever x is perturbed away from the critical point, it tends to return there again. Turning to the point x=1, for x slightly greater than 1, x >0; for x slightly less than 1, x <0. Because any x near x=1, but not equal to 1, will move away from x=1, the point x=1 is called an unstable critical point. A similar analysis applies at the point x= 1. This procedure of determining the behavior of an ordinary differential equation near its critical points is called a graphical stability analysis.
Phase line
A graphical representation of the results of our graphical stability analysis is the phase line. On a phase line, the equilibrium points are denoted by circles. See Figure 2.6.2. Also on the phase line we identify the sign of x for all values of x. From the sign of x , we then indicate whether x is increasing or deceasing by an appropriate arrow. If the arrow points toward the right, x is increasing; toward the left x decreases. Then, by knowing the sign of the derivative for all values of x, together with the starting value of x,(x)x3 ln(x)+u(x) [3x2 ln(x)+x2], and y =u (x)x3 ln(x)+2u (x) [3x2 ln(x)+x2]+u(x) [6x ln(x)+5x].

Substitution of y(x), y (x), and y (x) into (3.0.8) yields x5 ln(x)u +[x4 ln(x)+2x4] u =0.
(3.0.11)
Setting u = , separation of variables leads to
(3.0.12)
Note how our replacement of u (x) with (x) has reduced the second-order ordinary differential equation to a first-order one. Solving (3.0.12), we find that
128 Advanced Engineering Mathematics with MATLAB (3.0.13)
and (3.0.14)
Because y(x)=u(x)x3 ln(x), the complete solution is y(x)=C1x3+C2x3 ln(x). (3.0.15)
Substitution of (3.0.15) into (3.0.8) confirms that we have the correct solution. We can verify our answer by using the symbolic toolbox in MATLAB. Typing the command:
dsolve('x*x*D2y-5*x*Dy+9*y=0','x')
yields
ans = C1*x^3+C2*x^3*log(x)
In summary, we can reduce (in principle) any higher-order linear ordinary differential , equations into a system of first-order ordinary differential equations. This system of differential equations can then be solved using techniques from the previous chapter. In Chapter 14 we will pursue this idea further. Right now, however, we will introduce methods that allow us to find the solution in a more direct manner. Example 3.0.3 An autonomous differential equation is one where the independent variable does not appear explicitly. In certain cases we can reduce the order of the differential equation and then solve it. Consider the autonomous ordinary differential equation y =2y3.

3.1 HOMOGENEOUS LINEAR EQUATIONS WITH CONSTANT COEFFICIENTS In our drive for more efficient methods to solve higher-order, linear, ordinary differential equations, let us examine the simplest possible case of a homogeneous differential equation with constant coefficients:
(3.1.1) Although we could explore (3.1.1) in its most general form, we will begin by studying the second-order version, namely y +by +cy=0, (3.1.2)
since it is the next step up the ladder in complexity from first-order ordinary differential equations.
Higher-Order Ordinary Differential Equations 131 Motivated by the fact that

differential equation y +ay=0 is y(x)=C1e
, we make the educated guess that
the solution to (3.1.2) is y(x)=Ae . Direct substitution into (3.1.2) yields (am2 +bm+c) Ae mx =0. (3.1.3)
Because A 0 or we would have a trivial solution and since emx 0 for arbitrary x, (3.1.3) simplifies to am2 +bm+c=0. (3.1.4)
Equation (3.1.4) is called the auxiliary or characteristic equation. At this point we must consider three separate cases. Distinct real roots In this case the roots to (3.1.4) are real and unequal. Let us denote these roots by m=m1, and m=m2. Thus, we have the two solutions:
(3.1.5)
We will now show that the most general solution to (3.1.2) is
(3.1.6)
This result follows from the p linearly dependent on the real line? To find out, we compute the Wronskian or
(3.1.42)
(3.1.43)
Therefore, x, xex, and x2ex are linearly independent. Having introduced this concept of linear independence, we are now ready to address the question of how many linearly independent solutions a homogeneous linear equation has. Theorem: On any interval I over which an n-th order homogeneous linear differential equation is normal, the equation has n linearly independent solutions y1(x), y2(x),..., yn(x) and any particular solution of the equation on I can be expressed as a linear combination of these linearly independent solutions. Proof : Again for convenience and clarity we prove this theorem for the special case of n=2. Let y1(x) and y2(x) denote solutions on I of (3.1.2). We know that these solutions exist by the existence theorem and have the following values:
(3.1.44)
at some point a on I. To establish the linear independence of y1 and y2 we note that, if C1y1(x)+C2y2(x)=0 holds identically on I, then Because x=a lies in I, we have that C1y1(a)+C2y2(a)=0, there too.
(3.1.45)
and
140 Advanced Engineering Mathematics with MATLAB (3.1.46) which yields C1=C2=0 after substituting (3.1.44). Hence, the solutions y1 and y2 are linearly independent. To complete the proof we must now show that any particular solution of (3.1.2) can be expressed as a linear combination of y1 and y2. Because y, y1, and y2 are all solutions of (3.1.2) on I, so is the function Y(x)=y(x) y( )y1(a) y (a)y2(x), (3.1.47)
where y( ) and y (a) are the values of the solution y and its derivative at x=a. Evaluating Y and Y at x=a, we have that Y (a)=y(a) y( )y1( ) y (a)y2(a)=y(a) y(a)=0, (3.1.48)
and (3.1.49)
Thus, Y is the trivial solution to (3.1.2). Hence, for every x in I, y(x) y(a)y1(x) y (a)y2(x)=0. (3.1.50)
Solving (3.1.50) for y(x), we see that y is expressible as the linear combination y(x)=y(a)y1(x)+y (a)y2(x)
(3.1.51)
of y1 and y2, and the proof is complete for n=2. Problems Find the general solution to the following differential equations. Check your general solution by using dsolve in MATLAB. 1. y +6y +5y=0

Solve this integro-differential equation by differentiating it with respect to t to eliminate the integral. 3.2 SIMPLE HARMONIC MOTION Second-order, linear, ordinary differential equations often arise in mechanical or electrical problems. The purpose of this section is to illustrate how the techniques that we just derived may be applied to these problems. We begin by considering the mass-spring system illustrated in Figure 3.2.1 where a mass m is attached to a flexible spring suspended from a rigid support. If there were no spring, then the mass would simply fall downward due to the gravitational force mg. Because there is no motion, the gravitational force must be balanced by an upward force due to the presence of the spring. This upward force is usually assumed to obey Hooke's law which states that the restoring force is opposite to the direction of elongation and proportional to

the amount of elongation. Mathematically the equilibrium condition can be expressed mg=ks. Consider now what happens when we disturb this equilibrium. This may occur in one of two ways: We could move the mass either upward or downward and then release it. Another method would be to impart an initial velocity to the mass. In either case, the motion of the mass/spring system would be governed by Newton's second lalution is (3.4.13)
and the general solution is (3.4.14)
We can verify our result by using the symbolic toolbox in MATLAB. Typing the command:
dsolve('D2y-2*Dy+y=x+sin(x)','x')
yields
ans = x+2+1/2*cos(x)+C1*exp(x)+C2*exp(x)*x
Example 3.4.3 Let us find the particular solution to y +y 2y=xex (3.4.15)
by the method of undetermined coefficients. From the form of the right side of (3.4.15), we guess the particular solution
158 Advanced Engineering Mathematics with MATLAB yp(x)=Axex+Bex. (3.4.16)
Therefore,
(3.4.17)
and
(3.4.18)
Substituting into (3.4.15), we find that 3Aex=xex.
(3.4.19)
Clearly we cannot choose a constant A such that (3.4.19) is satisfied. What went wrong? To understand why, let us find the homogeneous or complementary solution to (3.4.15); it is yH(x)=C1e
2x
+C2ex.
(3.4.20)
Therefore, one of the assumed particular solutions, Bex, is also a homogeneous solution and cannot possibly give a nonzero left side when substituted into the differential equation. Consequently, it would appear that the method of undetermined coefficients does not work when one of the terms on the right side is also a homogeneous solution. Before we give up, let us recall that we had a similar situation in the case of linear homogeneous second-order ordinary differential equations when the roots from the auxiliary equation were equal. There we found one of the homogeneous solution was We eventually found that the second solution was Could such a solution work here? Let us try. We begin by modifying (3.4.16) by multiplying it by x. Thus, our new guess for the particular solution reads yp(x)=Ax2ex+Bxex.
(3.4.21)
Higher-Order Ordinary Differential Equations 159 Then,
(3.4.22)
and
(3.4.23)
Substituting (3.4.21) into (3.4.15) gives
(3.4.24)
Grouping together terms that vary as xex, we find that 6A=1. Similarly, terms that vary as ex yield 2A+3B=0. Therefore,
(3.4.25)
so that the general solution is
(3.4.26)
In summary, the method of finding particular solutions to higher-order ordinary differential equations by the method of undetermined coefficients is as follows: G Step 1: Find the homogeneous solution to the differential equation. G Step 2: Make an initial guess at the particular solution. The form of yp(x) is a linear combination of all linearly independent functions that are generated by repeated differentiations of f(x). G Step 3: If any of the terms in yp(x) given in Step 2 duplicate any of the homogeneous solutions, then that particular term in yp(x) must be multiplied by xn, where n is the smallest positive integer that eliminates the duplication.
160 Advanced Engineering Mathematics with MATLAB Example 3.4.4 Let us apply the method of undetermined coefficients to solve y +y=sin(x) e3x cos(5x). (3.4.27)
We begin by first finding the solution to the homogeneous version of (3.4.27): (3.4.28)
Its solution is yH(x)=A cos(x)+B sin(x).
(3.4.29)
To find the particular solution we examine the right side of (3.4.27) or f(x)=sin(x) e3x cos(5x).
(3.4.30)
Taking a few derivatives of f(x), we find that f (x)=cos(x) 3e3x cos(5x)+5e3x sin(5x),
(3.4.31)
f (x)= sin(x) 9e3x cos(5x)+30e3x sin(5x)+25e3x cos(5x),
(3.4.32)
and so forth. Therefore, our guess at the particular solution is yp(x)=Cx sin(x)+Dx cos(x)+Ee3x cos(5x)+Fe3x sin(5x).
(3.4.33)
Why have we chosen x sin (x) and x cos (x) rather than sin (x) and cos (x)? Because sin(x) and cos(x) are homogeneous solutions to (3.4.27), we must multiply them by a power of x.
Higher-Order Ordinary Differential Equations 161 Since (3.4.34)

Higher-Order Ordinary Differential Equations 183 where an,
n 1
,..., a0 are constants. The important point here is that in each term the
power to which x is raised equals the order of differentiation. To illustrate this equation, we will focus on the homogeneous, secondorder, ordinary differential equation (3.7.2)
The solution of higher-order ordinary differential equations follows by analog. If we wish to solve the nonhomogeneous equation (3.7.3)
we can do so by applying variation of parameters using the complementary solutions that satisfy (3.7.2). Our analysis starts by trying a solution of the form y=xm, where m is presently undetermined. The first and second derivatives are (3.7.4)
respectively. Consequently, substitution yields the differential equation (3.7.5)
=am(m 1)xm+bmxm+cxm
(3.7.6)
=[ m(m 1)+bm+c]xm.
(3.7.7)
Thus, y=xm is a solution of the differential equation whenever m is a solution of the auxiliary equation am(m 1)+bm+c=0, or am2+(b a)m+c=0. (3.7.8)
184 Advanced Engineering Mathematics with MATLAB At this point we must consider three different cases which depend upon the values of a, b, and c. Distinct real roots Let m1 and m2 denote the real roots of (3.7.8) such that m1 m2. Then, (3.7.9)
are homogeneous solutions to (3.7.2). Therefore, the general solution is (3.7.10)
Repeated real roots If the roots of (3.7.8) are repeated [m1=m2= (b a)/2], then we presently have only one solution, To construct the second solution y2, we use reduction in order. We begin by first rewriting the Euler-Cauchy equation as (3.7.11)
Letting P(x)=b/(ax), we have (3.7.12)

Just as soldiers mardhing in step produce a loud uniform sound, we suspect that our uniform tread pattern is the problem. Therefore, let us now vary the interval between the treads so that the distance between any tread and its nearest neighbor is not equal as illustrated in Figure 4.1.6. Again we perform its Fourier analysis and obtain that

214 Advanced Engineering Mathematics with MATLAB was used to compute the amplitude of each harmonic as a function of n and the results were plotted. See Figure 4.1.6. The important point is that our new choice for the spacing of the treads has reduced or eliminated some of the harmonics compared to the case of equally spaced treads. On the negative side we have excited some of the harmonics that were previously absent. However, the net effect is advantageous because the treads produce less noise at more frequencies rather than a lot of noise at a few select frequencies. If we were to extend this technique so that the treads occurred at completely random positions, then the treads would produce very little noise at many frequencies and the total noise would be comparable to that generated by other sources within the car. To find the distribution of treads with the whitest noise8 is a process of trial and error. Assuming a distribution, we can perform a Fourier analysis to obtain its frequency spectrum. If annoying peaks are present in the spectrum, we can then adjust the elements in the tread distribution that may contribute to the peak and analyze the revised distribution. You are finished when no peaks appear. Problems Find the Fourier series for the following functions. Using MATLAB, plot the Fourier spectrum.

4.2 PROPERTIES OF FOURIER SERIES In the previous section we introduced the Fourier series and showed how to compute one given the function f(t). In this section we examine some particular properties of these series.
Differentiation of a Fourier series In certain instances we only have the Fourier series representation of a function f(t). Can we find the derivative or the integral of f(t) merely by differentiating or integrating the Fourier series term by term? Is this permitted? Let us consider the case of differentiation first. Consider a function f(t) of period 2L which has the derivative f (t). Let us assume that we can expand f (t) as a Fourier series. This implies that f (t) is continuous except for a finite number of discontinuities and f(t) is continuous over an interval that starts at t= and ends at t= +2nto account, we can also write (5.1.19) as (5.1.20)
Finally, from the law of the mean of integrals, we have the sifting property that (5.1.21)
if a<t0<b. This property is given its name because (t t0) acts as a sieve, selecting from all possible values of f(t) its value at t=t0. We can also use several other functions with equal validity to represent the delta function. These include the limiting case of the following rectangular or triangular distributions: (5.1.22)
or (5.1.23)
The Fourier Transform and the Gaussian function:
275
(5.1.24)
Note that the delta function is an even function. Example 5.1.3: Multiple Fourier transforms The concept of Fourier transforms can be extended to multivariable functions. Consider a two-dimensional function f(x, y). Then, holding y constant,
(5.1.25)
Then, holding constant,
(5.1.26)
Therefore, the double Fourier transform of f(x, y) is
(5.1.27)
assuming that the integral exists. In a similar manner, we can compute f(x, y) given F( , ) by reversing the process. Starting with
(5.1.28)

Presently we will use it to express functions whose definition changes over different ranges of t. For example, the "top hat" function (5.1.9) can be rewritten f(t)=H(t+a) H(t a). We can see that this is correct by considering various ranges of t. For example, if t< a, both step functions equal zero and f(t)=0. On the other hand, if t>a, both step functions equal one and again f(t)=0. Finally, for a<t<a, the first step function equals one while the second one equals zero. In this case, f(t)=1. Therefore, f(t)=H(t+a) H(t a) is equivalent to (5.1.9). This ability to rewrite functions in terms of the step function is crucial if you want to use MATLAB to compute Fourier transform via the MATLAB routine fourier. For example, how would we compute the Fourier transform of the signum function? The MATLAB commands

As with Laplace transforms, we may use Fourier transforms to solve ordinary differential equations. However, this method gives only the particular solution and we must find the complementary solution separately. Consider the differential equation
(5.6.1)
Taking the Fourier transform of both sides of (5.6.1),
(5.6.2)
where we used the derivative rule (5.3.19) to obtain the transform of y and Y( )=F[y(t)]. Therefore,
(5.6.3)
Applying the inversion integral to (5.6.3),
(5.6.4)
We evaluate (5.6.4) by contour integration. For t>0 we close the line integral with an infinite semicircle in the upper half of the -plane. The integration along this arc equals zero by Jordan's lemma. Within this closed contour we have a second-order pole at z=i. Therefore,
(5.6.5)
(5.6.6)
322 Advanced Engineering Mathematics with MATLAB and (5.6.7) For t<0, we again close the line integral with an infinite semicircle but this time it is in the lower half of the -plane. The contribution from the line integral along the arc vanishes by Jordan's lemma. Within the contour, we have a simple pole at z= i. Therefore,
(5.6.8)
and
(5.6.9)
The minus sign in front of the 2 i results from the contour being taken in the clockwise direction or negative sense. Using the step function, we can combine (5.6.7) and (5.6.9) into the single expression
(5.6.10)
Note that we only found the particular or forced solution to (5.6.1). The most general solution therefore requires that we add the complementary solution Ae t, yielding
(5.6.11)
The arbitrary constant A would be determined by the initial condition which we have not specified. We could also have solved this problem using MATLAB. The MATLAB script

which is equivalent to (5.6.10). Consider now a more general problem of y +y=f(t), <t< (5.6.12)
where we assume that f(t) has the Fourier transform F( ). Then the Fouriertransformed solution to (5.6.12) is
(5.6.13) or y(t)=g(t)*f(t),
(5.6.14)
where g(t)=F l[1/(1+ i)]=e tH(t). Thus, we can obtain our solution in one of two ways. First, we can take the Fourier transform of f(t), multiply this transform by G( ), and finally compute the inverse. The second method requires a convolution of f(t) with g(t). Which method is easiest depends upon f(t) and g(t). The function g(t) can also be viewed as the particular solution of (5.6.12) resulting from the forcing function (t), the Dirac delta function, because F[ (t)]=1. Traditionally this forced solution g(t) is called the Green's function and G( ) is called the frequency response or steady-state transfer function of our system. Engineers often extensively study the frequency response in their analysis rather than the Green's function because the frequency response is easier to obtain experimentally and the output from a linear system is just the product of two transforms [see (5.6.13)] rather than an integration.
324 Advanced Engineering Mathematics with MATLAB In summary, we can use Fourier transforms to find particular solutions to differential equations. The complete solution consists of this particular solution plus any homogeneous solution that we need to satisfy the initial conditions. Convolution of the Green's function with the forcing function also gives the particular solution. Example 5.6.1: Spectrum of a damped harmonic oscillator Second-order differential equations are ubiquitous in engineering. In electrical engineering many electrical circuits are governed by second-order, linear ordinary differential equations. In mechanical engineering they arise during the application of Newton's second law. For example, in mechanics the damped oscillations of a mass m attached to a spring with a spring constant k and damped with a velocity dependent resistance are governed by the equation my +cy +ky=f(t), (5.6.15)
where y(t) denotes the displacement of the oscillator from its equilibrium position, c denotes the damping coefficient, and f(t) denotes the forcing. Assuming that both f(t) and y(t) have Fourier transforms, let us analyze this systetransform of the system of ordinary differential equations results in an algebraic set of equations containing Y1(s), Y2(s),..., Yn(s). By some method we solve this set of equations and invert each transform Y1(s), Y2(s),..., Yn(s) in turn to give y1(t), y2(t),..., yn(t). The following examples will illustrate the details of the process. Example 6.8.1 Let us solve the ordinary differential equation y +2y =8t, (6.8.2)
subject to the initial conditions that y (0)=y(0)=0. Taking the Laplace transform of both sides of (6.8.2),

Chapter 8 The Hilbert Transform
In addition to the Fourier, Laplace, and z-transforms, there are many other linear transforms which have their own special niche in engineering. Examples include Hankel, Walsh, Radon, and Hartley transforms. In this chapter we consider the Hilbert transform which is a commonly used technique for relating the real and imaginary parts of a spectral response, particularly in communication theory. We begin our study of Hilbert transforms by first defining them and then exploring their properties. Next, we develop the concept of the analytic signal. Finally, we explore a property of Hilbert transforms that is frequently applied to data analysis: the Kramers-Kronig relationship. 8.1 DEFINITION In Chapter 7 we motivated the development of z-transforms by exploring the concept of the ideal sampler. In the case of Hilbert transforms, we introduce another fundamental operation, namely quadrature phase shifting or the ideal Hilbert transformer. This procedure does nothing more than shift the phase of all input frequency components by /2. Hilbert transformers are frequently used in communication systems and signal processing; examples include the generation of single-sideband modulated signals and radar and speech signal processing. Because a /2 phase shift is equivalent to multiplying the Fourier transform of a signal by e i /2= i, and because phase shifting must be an odd function of frequency,1 the transfer function of the phase shifter is G( )= i sgn( ), where sgn( ) is defined by (5.2.11). In other words, if X( ) denotes the input spectrum to the phase shifter, the output spectrum must be i sgn( )X( ). If the process is repeated, the total phase shift is , a complete phase reversal of all frequency components. The output spectrum then equals [ i sgn( )]2X( )= X( ). This agrees with the notion of phase reversal because the output function is x(t). Consider now the impulse response of the quadrature phase shifter, g(t)= F 1[G( )]. From the definition of Fourier transforms,
(8.1.1)
and
(8.1.2)

For a real function the phase of its Fourier transform must be an odd function of .
474 Advanced Engineering Mathematics with MATLAB
Since G ( )= 2i ( ), the corresponding impulse response is
(8.1.3)
Consequently, if x(t) is the input to a quadrature phase shifter, the superposition integral gives the output time function as
(8.1.4)
as the Hilbert transform of x(t), although some authors use the We shall define negative of (8.1.4) corresponding to a+ /2 phase shift. The transform is also called the harmonic conjugate of x(t). In similar fashion, is the Hilbert transform of the Hilbert transform of x(t) and corresponds to the output of two cascaded phase shifters. However, this output is known to be x(t), so = x(t), and we arrive at the inverse Hilbert transform relationship that

Figure 8.1.1: Descended from a Prussian middle-class family, David Hito the right at the speed c if we wish to keep in the same position relative to the nearest crest and trough. The quantities k, , and c are the wavenumber, frequency, and phase speed or wave-velocity, respectively. The relationship =kc holds between the frequency and phase speed. It may seem paradoxical that we are talking about traveling waves in a problem dealing with waves confined on a string of length L. Actually we are dealing with standing waves because at the same time that a wave is propagating to the right its mirror image is running to the left so that there is no resultant progressive wave motion. Figures 10.3.1 and 10.3.2 illustrate our solution. Figure 10.3.1 gives various cross sections. The single large peak at t=0 breaks into two smaller peaks which race towards the two ends. At each end, they reflect and turn upside down as they propagate back towards x=L/2 at ct/L=1. This large, negative peak at x=L/2 again breaks apart, with the two smaller peaks propagating towards the endpoints. They reflect and again become positive peaks as they propagate back to x=L/2 at ct/L=2. After that time, the whole process repeats itself. MATLAB can used to examine the solution in its totality.

gives a three-dimensional view of (10.3.33). The solution can be viewed in many different prospects using the interactive capacity of MATLAB. An important dimension to the vibrating string problem is the fact that the wavenumber kn is not a free parameter but has been restricted to the values of n /L. This restriction on wavenumber is common in wave problems dealing with limited domains (for example, a building, ship, lake, or planet) and these oscillations are given the special name of normal modes or natural vibrations. In our problem of the vibrating string, all of the components propagate with the same phase speed. That is, all of the waves, regardless of wavenumber

kn, move the characteristic distance c t or c t after the time interval t elapsed. In the next example we will see that this is not always true. Example 10.3.2: Dispersion In the preceding example, the solution to the vibrating string problem consisted of two simple waves, each propagating with a phase speed c to the right and left. In many problems where the equations of motion are a little more complicated than (10.3.1), all of the harmonics no longer propagate with the same phase speed but at a speed that depends upon the wavenumber. In such systems the phase relation varies between the harmonics and these systems are referred to as dispersive. A modification of the vibrating string problem provides a simple illustration. We now subject each element of the string to an additional applied force which is proportional to its displacement:
(10.3.35))
where h>0 is constant. For example, if we embed the string in a thin sheet of rubber, then in addition to the restoring force due to tension, there is a restoring force due to the rubber on each portion of the string. From its use inditions defined for |x|< . Then illustrate your solution using MATLAB. 1. u(x, 0)=2 sin(x) cos(x) 2. u(x, 0)=x sin(x) 3. u(x, 0)=1/(x2+1) 4. u(x, 0)=e x 5. u(x, 0)=cos( x/2) 6. u(x, 0)=sin(3x) 7.

To illustrate this, let us solve the wave equation (10.4.1) with the initial conditions u(x, 0)=0, ut(x, 0)=Vmax(1 x/L), 0<x<L, and the boundary conditions u(0, t)=u(L, t) 0, 0<t.

Hint: Substitute the solution Step 2: Show that at any point x within the interval (0, L), the solution repeats with a period of 2L/c if ct>2L. Therefore, if we know the behavior of the solution for the time interval 0<ct<2L, we know the behavior for any other time. Step 3: Show that the solution at any point x within the interval (0, L) and time t+L/c, where 0<ct<L, is the mirror image (about u=0) of the solution at the point L x and time t, where 0<ct<L.

Hint: Find the maximum value of u(x, t) when 0<x ct and ct x<L with 0<x+ct<L or L<x+ct<2L. 10.5 THE LAPLACE TRANSFORM METHOD The solution of linear partial differential equations by Laplace transforms is the most commonly employed analytic technique after separation of variables. Because the transform consists solely of an integration with respect to time, the transform U(x, s) of the solution of the wave equation u(x, t) is
(10.5.1)
assuming that the wave equation only varies in a single spatial variable x and time t. Partial derivatives involving time have transforms similar to those that we encountered in the case of functions of a single variable. They include
(10.5.2)
and
(10.5.3)
These transforms introduce the initial conditions via u(x, 0) and ut(x, 0). On the other hand, derivatives involving x become
(10.5.4)
and
(10.5.5)
Because the transformation eliminates the time variable, only U(x, s) and its derivatives remain in the equation. Consequently, we transform the partial differential equation into a
608 Advanced Engineering Mathematics with MATLAB boundary-value problem involving an ordinary differential equation. Because this equation is often easier to solve than a partial differential equation, the use of Laplace transforms considerably simplifies the original problem. Of course, the Laplace transforms must exist for this technique to work. The following schematic summarizes the Laplace transform method:
In the following examples, we illustrate transform methods by solving the classic equation of telegraphy as it applies to a uniform transmission line. The line has a resistance R, an inductance L, a capacitance C, and a leakage conductance G per unit length. We denote the current in the direction of positive x by I; V is the voltage drop across the transmission line at the point x. The dependent variables I and V are functions of both distance x along the line and time t. To derive the differential equations that govern the current and voltage in the line, consider the points A at x and B at x+ x in Figure 10.5.1. The current and voltage at A are I(x, t) and V(x, t); at B, to B is and the and Therefore, the voltage drop from A

The initial guess everywhere except along the top boundary was zero. In Figure 12.7.1 we illustrate the numerical solution after 4, 16, 64, and 256 iterations where we have taken 11 grid points in the x and y directions. Project: Successive Over-Relaxation The fundamental difficulty with relaxation methods used in solving Laplace's equation is the rate of convergence. Assuming x= y, the most popular method for accelerating convergence of these techniques is successive over-relaxation (SOR):

The initial guess equaled zero.
822 Advanced Engineering Mathematics with MATLAB Most numerical methods books dealing with partial differential equations discuss the theoretical reasons behind this technique;27 the optimum value always lies between one and two. Step 1: Write a MATLAB script that uses the Gauss-Seidel method to numerically solve Laplace's equation for 0 x L, 0 y z0 with the following boundary conditions: u(x, 0)=0, u(x, z0)=1+x/L, u(0, y)=y/z0, and u(L, y)=2y/z0. Because this solution will act as "truth" in this project, you should iterate until the solution does not change. Step 2: Now redo the calculation using successive over-relaxation. Count the number of iterations until |Rm,n| 10 3 for all m and n. Plot the number of iterations as a function of . How does the curve change with resolution x? Step 3: Redo Steps 1 and 2 with the exception of u(0, y)=u(L, y)=0. How has the convergence rate changed? Can you explain why? How sensitive are your results to the first guess?

Chapter 13 Vector Calculus
Physicists invented vectors and vector operations to facilitate their mathematical expression of such diverse topics as mechanics and electromagnetism. In this chapter we focus on multivariable differentiations and integrations of vector fields, such as the velocity of a fluid, where the vector field is solely a function of its position. 13.1 REVIEW The physical sciences and engineering abound with vectors and scalars. Scalars are physical quantities which only possess magnitude. Examples include mass, temperature, density, and pressure. Vectors are physical quantities that possess both magnitude and direction. Examples include velocity, acceleration, and force. We shall denote vectors by boldfaced letters. Two vectors are equal if they have the same magnitude and direction. From the limitless number of possible vectors, two special cases are the zero vector 0 which has no magnitude and unspecified direction and the unit vector which has unit magnitude. The most convenient method for expressing a vector analytically is in terms of its components. A vector a in three-dimensional real space is any order triplet of real numbers (components) a1, a2, and a3 such that a=a1i+ a2j+a3k, where a1i, a2j, and a3k are vectors which lie along the coordinate axes and have their origin at a common initial point. The magnitude, length, or norm of a vector a, |a|, equals A particularly important vector is the position vector, defined by r=xi+yj+zk. As in the case of scalars, certain arithmetic rules hold.

We assume that the boundary of the rectangle is a piece-wise smooth curve which we denote by C. If we have a continuously differentiable vector function F=P(x, y)i+Q(x, y)j at each point of enclosed region R, then

Although this proof was for a rectangular area, it can be generalized to any simply closed region on the xy-plaue as follows. Consider an area which is surrounded by simply closed curves. Within the closed contour we can divide the area into an infinite number of infinitesimally small rectangles and apply (13.6.6) to each rectangle. When we sum up all of these rectangles, we find where the integration is over the entire surface area. On the other hand, away from the boundary, the line integral along any one edge of a rectangle cancels the line integral along the same edge in a contiguous

Thus, the only nonvanishing contribution from the line integrals arises from the outside boundary of the domain Example 13.6.1 Let us verify Green's lemma using the vector field F=(3x2 8y2)i+ (4y 6xy)j and the enclosed area lies between the curves The two curves intersect at x=0 and x=1.

As shown in Figure 13.7.4, the closed line integration consists of three line integrals: (13.7.26)

F=xi+xzj+yk and the surface S is that portion of the paraboloid z=9 x2 y2 within the cylinder x2+y2=4. 13.8 DIVERGENCE THEOREM Although Stokes' theorem is useful in computing closed line integrals, it is usually very difficult to go the other way and convert a surface integral into a closed line integral because the integrand must have a very special form, namely In this section we introduce a theorem that allows with equal facility the conversion of a closed surface integral into a volume integral and ice ersa. Furthermore, if we can convert a given surface integral into a closed one by the introduction of a simple surface (for example, closing a hemispheric surface by adding an equatorial plate), it may be easier to use the divergence theorem and subtract off the contribution from the new surface integral rather than do the original problem. This relationship between a closed surface integral and a volume integral involving the d remaining portion of this section, we show some operations that may be performed on a determinant to introduce the desired zeros. Most of the properties follow from the expansion of determinants by cofactors. G Rule 1: For every square matrix A, det(AT)=det(A). The proof is left as an exercise. G Rule 2: If any two rows or columns of A are identical, det(A)=0. To see that this is true, consider the following 3 3 matrix:
(14.2.10)
G Rule 3: The determinant of a triangular matrix is equal to the product of its diagonal elements.
Linear Algebra If A is lower triangular, successive expansions by elements in the first column give
891
(14.2.11)
=...=a11a22...ann.
(14.2.12)
If A is upper triangular, successive expansions by elements of the first row prove the property. Rule 4: If a square matrix A has either a row or a column of all zeros, then det(A)=0. The proof is left as an exercise. Rule 5: If each element in one row (column) of a determinant is multiplied by a number c, the value of the determinant is multiplied by c. Suppose that |B| has been obtained from |A| by multiplying row i (column j) of |A| by c. Upon expanding |B| in terms of row i (column j) each term in the expansion contains c as a factor. Factor out the common c, the result is just c times the expansion |A| by the same row (column). Rule 6: If each element of a row (or a column) of a determinant can be expressed as a binomial, the determinant can be written as the sum of two determinants. To understand this property, consider the following 3 3 determinant:
(14.2.13)
The proof follows by expanding the determinant by the row (or column) that contains the binomials. Rute 7: If B is a matrix obtained by interchanging any two rows (columns) of a square matrix A, then det(B)= det(A). The proof is by induction. It is easily shown for any 2 2 matrix. Assume that this rule holds of any (n 1) (n 1) matrix. If A is n n, then let B be a matrix formed by interchanging rows i and j. Expanding |B| and |A| by a different row, say k, we have that (14.2.14)
where Mks and Nks are the minors formed by deleting row k, column s from |B| and |A|, respectively. For s=1, 2,..., n, we obtain Nks and Mks by interchanging rows i and j. By the induction hypothesis and recalling that Nks and Mks are (n 1) (n 1) determinants,
892 Advanced Engineering Mathematics with MATLAB Nks= Mks for s=1, 2,..., n. Hence, |B|= |A|. Similar arguments hold if two columns are interchanged. G Rule 8: If one row (column) of a square matrix A equals to a number c times some other row (column), then det(A)=0. Suppose one row of a square matrix A is equal to c times some other row. If c=0, then |A|=0. If c 0, then |A|=c|B|, where |B|=0 because |B| has two identical rows. A similar argument holds for two columns. G Rule 9: The value of det(A) is unchanged if any arbitrary multiple of any line (row or column) is added to any other line. To see that this is true, consider the simple example:
(14.2.15)
where c 0. The first determinant on the left side is our original determinant. In the second determinant, we again expand the first column and find that
(14.2.16)
Example 14.2.2 Let us evaluate
using a combination of the properties stated above and expansion by cofactors. By adding or subtracting the first row to the other rows, we have that
