Tufts University Math 38 Department of Mathematics February 9, 2009 Exam 1 No calculators, notes, books, pagers, mobile phones or other electronic devices are allowed on the exam. All answers should be in terms of real numbers and functions. You must show all your work to receive credit. You are required to sign your exam book. With your signature, you are pledging that you have neither given nor received assistance on the exam. Students found violating this pledge will receive an F in the course. 1. (3 points each, no partial credit) (a) Is d 4 x dt 4 + 5 t 3 dx dt = p t 2 - 1 linear? (b) Is the linear o.d.e. t d 2 x dt 2 - e t dx dt + tx = sin t normal on the interval (0 , 2)? (c) Determine the largest intervals on which 5 d 2 x dt 2 - 3 dx dt = t is normal. (d) Compute ( D 2 + 3 D + 2) t 2 e - t . 2. (10 points) Let f ( t, x ) = - x ( t - 2) (a) Is f ( t, x ) continuous at (2 , 1)? (b) Is ∂f ∂x continuous at (2 , 1)? (c) Does the equation dx dt = - x t - 2 x (2) = 1 satisfy the hypotheses of the existence
