From this, guess a solution of the form u ( x, t ) = ∞ X n =0 A n ( t ) * eigenfunctions Proceed as in the previous problem to get an ODE of the form: dA n ( t ) dt + k ± nπ L ² 2 A n ( t ) = c n ( t ) • Show that c n ( t ) = e-t if n = 0 e-2 t if n = 3 if n 6 = 0 , 3 • Verify that with these three choices of c n ( t ), the solution of the ODE is: n 6 = 0 , 3 : A n ( t ) = A n (0) e-k ( nπ/L ) 2 t n = 0 : A ( t ) = A (0) + 1-e-t n = 3 : A 3 ( t ) = A 3 (0) e-k ( nπ/L ) 2 t + e-2 t-e-k ( nπ/L ) 2 t k (3 π/L ) 2-2 1...
