Math 415A: Direction Fields to Some Problems from Section 2.1 The direction fields are produced using Dfield, a very nice java applet for visualizing direction fields. The applet can be found on http://math.rice.edu/ dfield/dfpp.html through the courtesy of Prof. John C. Polking from Rice University. Problem 2.1.1. y y´ = -3*y+t+e^(-2*t) -5 -4 -3 -2 -1 0 1 2 3 4 5 t 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 Figure 1: As t → ∞ , y ( t ) approaches the line t 3 - 1 9 asymptotically regardless of the initial value y (0) . 1
