MATH314, Modeling Realizable Phenomena Practice Midterm Gidon Eshel, Physics Department, Bard College Annandale-on-Hudson, NY 12504-5000, x-7232, [email protected] . Remember: succinct and to the point and very clearly printed, no cursive ever. (1) Explain clearly in a sentence the Principle of Parsimony. (2) For the scalar linear model dx dt = αx please (a) point out the state vector, (b) obtain the general solution and state what information you need for it to be com- plete, (c) define, and characterize the condition(s) for, instability. (3) For the model df dt = αf - α 10 fg dg dt = 10 βfg - βg, please (a) Write down the state vector. (b) Identify the coefficients and describe briefly their biological roles. (c) Point out sources of nonlinearities. (d) Linearize about a general state (i.e., a non-specific symbolic state whose compo- nents can take on any value within a specific set – please point out what that set is). (e) Identify the quantities determining the validity of the linearized solution.
