425/525, Math Spring 2011 Jerry L. Kazdan Problem Set 1 D UE : In class Thursday, Jan. 27. Late papers will be accepted until 1:00 PM Friday. 1. Find Greens function g(x, s) to get a formula u(x) = of u (x) = f (x) . Rx 0 g(x, s) f (s) ds for a particular solution 2. In class we considered the oscillations of a weight attached to a spring hanging from the ceiling. If u(t ) is the displacement of the mass m we were let to solve mu(t ) = ku , where k > 0 is a constant that depends on the stiffness of the spring. But this model neglected gravity. If we include gravity the equation becomes mu = ku + mg, where g is the gravitational constant, Solve this equation assuming you know the initial conditions u(0) = A and u (0) = B . 3. Let a(x) and f (x) be periodic functions with period P , so, for instance, a(x + P) = a(x) . This problem investigates periodic solutions u(x) (with period P ) of Lu := u (x) + a(x)u = f (x) . a) Show there is a periodic solution of u (x) = f (x) if and only if RP 0 f (x) dx = 0 . b) Show that the homogeneous equation Lu = 0 has a non-trivial P -periodic solution u(x) if R and only if 0P a(x) dx = 0 . R c) If 0P a(x) dx = 0 , show that the inhomogeneous equation Lu = f always has a unique P -periodic solution u(x) . R On the other hand, if 0P a(x) dx = 0 , nd a necessary and sufcient condition for Lu = f to have a P -periodic solution. If it has P a periodic solution, is this solution unique? 4. In class we obtained a simpler general formula for a particular solution of the inhomogeneous rst order system U + AU = F , where U (x) and F (x) are vectors with n components and A(x) is an n n matrix. In addition we showed how much of the theory for a second order equation was in fact a special case of that for a rst order system. Use this to re-derive Lagranges formula for a particular solution of the inhomogeneous equation u + u = f . 5. Show that the boundary value problem u + u = f R on 0 x with boundary conditions u(0) = 0 and u() = 0 has a solution if and only if 0 f (x) sin x dx = 0 . Bonus Problems (Due Jan. 27) 1-B Let a(t ) and f (t ) be periodic continuous functions with period 2 . 1 a) Show that the equation u = f has a 2 -periodic solution (so both u and u are 2 periodic) if and only if Z 2 0 f (t ) dt = 0. b) Show that the equation u + u = f has a 2 -periodic solution if and only if both R 0 and 02 f (t ) cos t dt = 0 . R 2 0 f (t ) sin t dt = c) More generally, show that the equation Lu := u + a(t )u = f has a 2 -periodic solution if R and only if 02 f (t )z(t ) dt = 0 for all 2 -periodic solutions of z + a(t )z = 0 . [R EMARK : These are special cases of the Fredholm alternative: the image of L is the orthogonal complement of the kernel of the adjoint operator L .] [Last revised: January 25, 2011] 2
