Unformatted text preview: Exercises 6.4 Therefore, we have yp (x) = v1 (x) + v2 (x) cos x + v3 (x) sin x = ln(sec x) + cos2 x + sin2 x − sin x ln(sec x + tan x) ⇒ yp (x) = ln(sec x) − sin x ln(sec x + tan x) + 1. Since y ≡ 1 is a solution to the homogeneous equation, we may choose yp (x) = ln(sec x) − sin x ln(sec x + tan x). Note: We left the absolute value signs off ln(sec x) and ln(sec x + tan x) because of the stated domain: 0 < x < π/2. 7. First, we divide the differential equation by x3 to obtain the standard form y − 3x−1 y + 6x−2 y − 6x−3 y = x−4 , x > 0, from which we see that g (x) = x−4 . Given that {x, x2 , x3 } is a fundamental solution set for the corresponding homogeneous equation, we are looking for a particular solution of the form yp (x) = v1 (x)x + v3 (x)x2 + v3 (x)x3 .
