Find a function F ( x,y ) defined in the first quadrant such that dF = . Solution . Following the standard procedure F ( x,y ) = Z (ln y + y/x 1) dx + h ( y ) = x ln y + y ln x x + h ( y ) F y = x/y + ln x + h ( y ) So we need h ( y ) = 1, which gives h ( y ) = y + C and F ( x,y ) = x ln y + y ln x x y + C. The level curves of the function F ( x,y ) that you found in part a) are solutions to a first order differential equation. Write down that differential equation. Solution . We have = 0 when y = y ( x ) is a solution to the differential equation. So 0 = (ln y + y/x 1) dx +(ln x + x/y 1) dy dx dx = [(ln y + y/x 1)+(ln x + x/y 1) dy dx ] dx So the differential equation is 0 = (ln y + y/x 1) + (ln x + x/y 1) dy dx or in normal form dy dx = ln y + y/x 1 ln x + x/y 1 ....
