with0<b<1, 0<e<<1. (a) Use the Lindstedt-Poincaré method to ﬁnd an approximate solution to ﬁrst order
in 6. Give the approximation to the period. (b) What is the disadvantage in using a regular perturbation series? 8.  (a) Prove the result that if g(t) is continuous on the interval [(1, b], g(t) Z 0 and
g(t) S L/ g(s) d5 for t 6 [a, b], L > 07 then g(t) = 0 on [a, b]. Hint: consider h(t) = L/tg(s) ds. (b) State the important result that is proved using the result in part (a). ...
