Unformatted text preview: SOLODE The general Second Order ODE is y 00 ( t ) = f ( t,y ( t ) ,y ( t ) ) . We will only deal with the linear ones: y 00 =- p ( t ) y ( t )- q ( t ) y ( t ) + g ( t ) or y 00 + p ( t ) y + q ( t ) y = g ( t ) . Example: Let’s start simple: ay 00 + by + cy = 0 . ( CCH ) This equation has constant coefficients a,b,c, and is homogeneous [as g = 0 ]. What to do? SOLODE The general Second Order ODE is y 00 ( t ) = f ( t,y ( t ) ,y ( t ) ) .

( CCH ) This equation has constant coefficients a,b,c, and is homogeneous [as g = 0 ]. What to do? The functions y ( t ) , y ( t ) , and y 00 ( t ) should be similar. So? 2 The functions y ( t ) , y ( t ) , and y 00 ( t ) should be similar. So? We’ll try y ( t ) = e rt . Then ay 00 + by + cy = ar 2 e rt + bre rt + ce rt = ( ar 2 + br + c ) e rt and y ( t ) = e rt solves ( CCH ) iff ar 2 + br + c = 0 , i.e. iff r =- b ± √ b 2- 4 ac 2 a , i.e. iff r = r 1 def =- b + √ b 2- 4 ac 2 a or r = r 2 def =- b- √ b 2- 4 ac 2 a . 2 ar 2 + br + c is the characteristic polynomial of the equation ( CCH ) , and ar 2 + br + c = 0 is the characteristic equation . At first, this makes sense only if the Dis- criminant b 2- 4 ac is strictly positive, so we can take the square root of b 2- 4 ac ; in this case we get two solutions y 1 ( t ) = e r 1 t...
