MATH 412: Sample Questions for Midterm 1 1. Say whether or not the following defines a vector space (and explain): the set of all solutions u ( x, t ) to the semi-infinite diffusion equation u t = ku xx for x (0 , + ), with u ( x, 0) = f ( x ) and (a) u (0 , t ) = 0 (b) u x (0 , t ) = 0 2. Write the Conservation Law equation for the density function u ( x, t ) in R n . Specify what flux function ~ F leads to the heat equation, and substitute it to obtain the heat equation in R n . 3. Consider the 1D heat equation between 0 and L , with Neumann boundary conditions specified: u t = ku xx , 0 < x < L, t > 0 u x (0 , t ) = Q 1 , t > 0 u x ( L, t ) = Q 2 , t > 0 u ( x, 0) = φ ( x ) , 0 < x < L, where Q 1 and Q 2 are given constants. Find the steady state solution(s), and discuss their dependence on Q 1 , Q 2 , and φ ( x ). 4. Solve the Cauchy problem for u ( x, t ): ± u t + cu x = - λu 3 , x R , t > 0 u ( x, 0) = exp( - x 3 ) , with λ > 0 and c > 0, and assuming
