Math 261 Review for Test2 PART I The Wronskian: how to evaluate; how to use to prove linear independence of the given set of functions. Linear Homogeneous Equation: a fundamental set of solutions, the general solution. How to solve Homogeneous Equations with constant coefficients. Reduction of Order Nonhomogeneous Equations: Method of Undetermined Coefficients, Variations of Pa- rameters. Mechanical Vibration: undamped free vibrations, damped free vibrations. Series Solution near an ordinary point PART II 1. Find the Wronskian of the set { sin(3 x ) , cos(3 x ) , 1 } . Is this set linerly independent? 2. Is the set { 1 , x, x 3 } a fundamental set of solutions for the differential equation xy 000 - y 00 = 0? 3. y 00 - 2 y 0 + y = 0. Is the general solution y = c 1 e x + c 2 xe x ? 4. Solve the following homogeneous equations with constant coefficients: (a) y 00 + 10 y 0 + 21 y = 0 (b) y 00 - 6 y 0 + 9 y = 0 (c) y 00 + 4 y 0 + 5 y = 0 (d) y (4) - y 00 + 20 y = 0 (e) y (4) + y 000 = 0 1

What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
