APPM 4/5350 Worksheet Week 2 Figure 1: www.xkcd.com 1. Linearity Which of the following operators L are linear operators? L ( x ) = 13 x + 7 L ( f ) = 2 f ∂x 2 - 1 c 2 2 f ∂t 2 L ( w ) = ( ∂w ∂x ) 2 + q ( x, t ) w + 3 w ∂x 3 L ( w ) = 2 w ∂x 2 + q ( x, t ) w + 3 w ∂x 3 Is a linear combination of two linear operators also a linear operator? How about the product? Prove (using definition) or give a counterexample in each case. 2. Separation of Variables The relation X ( x ) = Y ( y ) x, y can only be true if X ( x ) = Y ( y ) = const, why? 3. Zero Given X α A f ( α ) = 0 , where f : X R and A is an arbitrary subset of

Orthogonality What information is missing to determine if the following items are orthogonal? assume a reasonable expression for the omitted information and then determine if the items are orthogonal. • f ( x ) = x and g ( x ) = x 4 • v 1 = ( e 2 π i ) T and v 2 = (-1 e i ) T • “mathematicians” and “physicists” Written by Anil Damle and Anna Lieb 1 revised August 2010...
