SECTION 2.4 A LITTLE BIT OF THEORY You’ve created a model of a physical system that involves a differential equation for an unknown function y . This y is unknown in that we don’t have a formula for it, but it already has physical significance. Can you say anything about whether a solution for y actually exists mathematically, without having to solve the differential equation? And if a solution does exist, how many solutions are there, mathematically? Answers to such questions can tell us something about our model! EXISTENCE AND UNIQUENESS THEOREM, LINEAR CASE Statement on page 68, Theorem 2.4.1. EXAMPLE. Determine an interval in which the solution of the following initial value

Unformatted text preview: problem is certain to exist. ( t-1)(9-t 2 ) y + 4 ty = cos(7 t ) , y (0) = 83 Same differential equation, but with initial condition y (2) = 8. EXISTENCE & UNIQUENESS THEOREM, GENERAL FIRST ORDER CASE Statement on page 70, Theorem 2.4.2. EXAMPLE. State where in the ty-plane the hypotheses of the General First Order Exis-tence and Uniqueness Theorem are satisfied for the differential equation y = ln | ty | 1-t 2-y 2 EXAMPLE. Verify that both y 1 ( t ) = 1-t and y 2 ( t ) =-t 2 / 4 are solutions of the initial value problem y =-t + ( t 2 + 4 y ) 1 / 2 2 , y (2) =-1 . Discuss! HOMEWORK: SECTION 2.4...
