We expect that these zeros and singularities of the Jacobian will cause the solution to be badly behaved.

(8) s H x, y L = xy ÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅ ÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅ 2 H y - x L t H x, y L = y - 2x ÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅ We see from this the following (9) s = 0 Ø xy = 0 t s = 1 Ø y = 0 t s = 1 ê 2 Ø x = 0 So the transformation is poorly defined on the x and y axes. Plugging t into the expression for u gives (10) u H x, y L = ÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅ ÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅ x H 2 + y L - y which is undefined on (11) y = ÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅÅ 1 - x We see by plotting this, together with the initial curve y=2x, that the solution to the Cauchy problem can only be defined in the region between the two parts of the graph of y=2x/(1-x). (2 points off if they only say that the solution fails to exist on the curves and don't mention what happens outside the region) Figure 1 -4 -2 2 4 6 -6 -4 -2 2 4 (b) (15 points) (12) u t + uu x = 0 u H x, 0 L = f H x L (13) f H x L = 0x § 0 x0 § x § 1 1x ¥ 1 The characteristic equations are (14) x t = u t t = 1 u t = 0 with initial data Printed by Mathematica for Students
