Math 401 (Sec. 502) Spring, 2009 Homework 2 (due February 3) Q1. Obtain two-term expansions for the solutions of the equation (where 0 < ǫ << 1) (1 - ǫ ) z 2 - 2 z + 1 = 0 . Q2. Find the ±rst two terms of the perturbation series solutions to the initial value problems (where 0 < ǫ << 1) (a) y - y - ǫ 1 y = 0, y (0) = 1. (b) y ′′ + 4 y + 3 y + ǫy 2 = 0, y (0) = 1 , y (0) = - 3. (c) y ′′ + ǫy - ǫ = 0, y (0) = 1 , y (0) = - 3. Q3. Determine the region of uniformity of the solutions to the di²erential

Arrange the following so that they form an asymptotic sequence as ǫ → 1 , ǫ 1 2 , ǫ 2 , log 1 ǫ , ǫ 1 2 , ǫ 2 log 1 ǫ , log(log 1 ǫ ) , ǫ 3 2 , ǫ 1 2 log 1 ǫ . ( Hint: log 1 ǫ = o ( 1 ǫ p ) as ǫ → 0 for any p > 0)...
