Mathematics 33B: Milestones for Week 2 Note: We start the Monday lecture off by doing the escape velocity prob- lem. Topic I. (Lectures 5 & 6): 2.6 exact differential equations. A. Total derivatives: g = g ( x, y ) is a function of two variables. The total derivative of g is dg = ∂g ∂x dx + ∂g ∂y dy . 1. g ( x, y ) = 2 xy 3 + e 4 x sin y . Compute dg . B. Differential Forms. We consider differential equations of the form P ( x, y )+ Q ( x, y ) d y d x = 0, where P and Q are functions of both the independent variable x and the dependent variable y . This is equivalent to the form P ( x, y ) dx + Q ( x, y ) dy = 0. C. We can use total derivatives to solve differential equations. 1. Recall some 32B and what it means for a differential form to be exact. A form ω = M ( x, y ) dx + N ( x, y ) dy is exact in a region R , if ω = df where f is some continuously differentiable function in R . Suppose M , N , ∂M ∂y and ∂N ∂x are all continuous in a disk D . The differential form ω is exact in D if and only if ∂M ∂y = ∂N ∂x . 2. Suppose that (1 - sin x tan x ) dx + (cos x sec 2 y ) dy = 0. This is equivalent to the differential equation: 1 - sin x tan x + cos x sec 2 2 y d y d x = 0. This differential form is exact. Thus, there is a function g ( x, y ) such that dg = (1 - sin x tan x ) dx +(cos x sec 2 y ) dy . Then the condition that dg = 0 gives us by integration that g = C where C is a constant. g ( x, y ) = x +cos x tan y + K .

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
