[10%] By use of the general theorems given in class, say what you can about the existence, uniqueness, and tinterval of definition of a solution y ( t ) of the ODE (ln  t  ) y + e t y = t 2 9 t 4 with the initial conditions: (a) y (2) = 5; (b) y (5) = 2. (Don’t try to solve the ODE explicitly.) Solution • The equation is linear, of the form y + p ( t ) y = g ( t ) , with coefficient functions p ( t ) = e t ln  t  , g ( t ) = t 2 9 ( t 4) ln  t  . The function p ( t ) is discontinuous at t = 0, where ln  t  is discontinuous and at t = ± 1, where ln  t  = 0. The function g ( t ) is discontinuous at t = 0 , ± 1 and at t = 4, where t 4 = 0. • (a) By the general existenceuniqueness theorem for linear IVPs, a unique solution y ( t ) exists and is defined in the interval 1 < t < 4, which is the largest tinterval containing the initial time t = 2 where the coefficient functions are continuous....
