MAE294B/SIO203B: Methods in Applied Mechanics Winter Quarter 2010 http://maecourses.ucsd.edu/mae294b Homework III Due January 28, 2010. Questions with a star have a numerical/plotting component. 1 Investigate the behavior of the system ˙ x = ( μ - x 2 ) ± 1 - 2 x + μ 2 ² . In particular discuss the values of μ at which the qualitative nature of the solution changes. 2 Kepler’s equation nt = u - ε sin u relates the eccentric anomaly u to the eccentricity ε and the mean anomaly nt . Find the first three terms in the expansion of u for small ε . 3* Find approximations to the complex solutions
