18.03 Problem Set 4b Spring 2009 Due with Problem Set 4a in Room 2-106 at 12:55 pm, Friday, March 6 Part A 20 points for PS4a (Part A) + PS4b (Part A) 0. (at due date) Write the names of any person, web site, or materials you consulted. Write “No C” (no consultation) on your paper if you consulted no outside materials/people. 3. (Lec 11, Fri Feb 27: Solving y 00 + ay 0 + by = 0 , y ( x 0 ) = y 0 , y 0 ( x 0 ) = v 0 ) Read: EP 2.1 (Skip Theorems 2, 3; pay attention to the last three pages 109–111, constant coefficient equations); EP (p. 129–132; Complex-valued functions, Examples 2–5) Work: 2C-1abcde 4. (Lec 12, Mon Mar 2: Damping; complex roots ) Read: EP 2.3, 2.4 ; Work: 2C-3, 5, 10ab 5. (Lec 13, Wed Mar 4: Main theorems about linear 2nd-order ODE’s) Read: 2.1 Theorems 1, 2, 4; Work: 2A-1a, 2, 3 Part B 48 points for the sum of 4a and 4b (+ 10 extra) 1. (on PS4a) Godzilla = 12pts = 4 + 2 + 2 + 2 + 2. ( X. Extra credit 10 pts) 2. Lec 9 Linear approximation to nonlinear ODE. (10 pts = 2 + 2 + 6) a) Draw enough solution curves to the equation y 0 = 3 y - y 2 = (3 - y ) y to indicate all behaviors, especially near the stable trajectory y = 3. b) We will now explain why nearby solutions to y = 3 tend to 3 exponentially fast by comparing to the linear case. Write nearby solutions as y = 3 + u where u is small. Derive the equation for u , u 0 = - 3 u - u 2 c) The idea of linearization is that, since we expect u to be small as x → ∞ , we omit the small term u 2 from the equation in (b) and are left with a much simpler linear

### What students are saying

• 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.
