AM351 Spring 08 Due Friday, June 20 Assignment 2 Instructions: write your solutions clearly, explain your steps carefully and refer to the- orems and lemmas when needed. The assignment is due either in class or in the as- signments drop box (4th floor) by 2pm. 1. ( 5 marks ) Consider the system of differential equations with constant coefficients Y 0 = AY + f ( x ) or y 0 1 = a 11 y 1 + a 12 y 2 + f 1 ( x ) y 0 2 = a 21 y 1 + a 22 y 2 + f 2 ( x ) Assuming that a ij R , y 1 and y 2 are two times differentiable and f 1 , f 2 are dif- ferentiable, show that this equation may be reduced to the second order equation y 00 1 + α 1 y 0 1 + α 2 y 1 = g ( x ) , where α 1 = Trace( A ), α 2 = det( A ) and g ( x ) depends on f 1 and f 2 . Hint: Differentiate the first equation with respect to x, then use the first and second equation to eliminate y 2 and y 0 2 from this equation. 2. ( 5 marks ) Solve the differential equation Y 0 = AY + F ( x ) where A = ± 3 -1 1 1 ² , F ( x ) = ± e x e 2 x ² 3. ( 5 marks ) Apply the method of successive approximations (Picard iterations)

Compute the exact solution and compare y 1 , y 2 and y 3 to the appropriate partial sums of the Taylor series for the exact solution. 4. ( 5 marks ) Consider the initial value problem y 000 + y 2 = 1 ,y (1) = 1 ,y (1) = 0 ,y 00 (1) = 0 a) Rewrite this equation in an equivalent vector initial value problem Y = F ( Y ( x ) ,x ) , Y ( x ) = Y b) Use the definition to show that F is Lipschitz continuous with respect to Y in any region [ a,b ] × R 2 × R ⊂ R 3 × R , where a,b are finite real numbers. c) Apply the appropriate theorem to predict where a solution of the initial value problem exists. 1...
