Math 257/316 – Assignment 2 Due: Wednesday, January 20 1. The following functions are analytic at x 0 = 0 . Without actually computing their deriva- tives, find the first three non-zero terms of their power series about x 0 and determine their convergence radii: a) f ( x ) = 1 2 + x b) 1 cos x Hint: cos x = 1 - x 2 2! + x 4 4! - x 6 6! ± . . . 2. For the following equations, verify that x 0 = 0 is an ordinary point. Without actually solving the equations, find then a lower bound for the radii of convergence of power series solutions about x 0 = 0 : a) ( x 2 + 2) y 00 + 2 xy 0 = 0 b) ( x - 1) y 00 + y 0 = 0 c) xy 00 + sin( x ) y = 0 Hint: sin( x ) = x - x 3 3! + x 5 5! - x 7 7! ± . . . 3. For the following differential equations, verify that x 0 = 0 is an ordinary point. Then find two linearly independent series solution for each problem and determine their guaranteed
