Unformatted text preview: ACM 95/100c April 2, 2004 Problem Set I 1. Solve the firstorder PDE ∂u ∂x + 2 ∂u ∂y = 0 with boundary conditions u = y 2 on x = 0,∞ < y < ∞ . 2. (a) Find the solution u of the equation ∂u ∂x + ∂u ∂y = 1 satisfying u = x 2 , on y = α x , α 6 = 1. (b) Discuss existence and uniqueness in the case α = 1 considering, in particular, the initial condition u = x on y = x . 3. The density of traffic on a freeway (cars per unit length) is described by the function ρ ( x, t ), where x is the distance down traffic from an obstruction and t is the time. For a particular type of obstruction to traffic flow, the traffic density function ρ ( x, t ) is described by the firstorder PDE ∂ρ ∂t + c ∂ρ ∂x = exp( 3 x ) , where c is a constant. Obtain the general solution of this PDE with initial condition ρ ( x, 0) = f ( x ), where f ( x ) is given. 4. i) Solve the initial value problems x 2 u x + y 2 u y = u 2 u = 1 on the initial curve y = 2 x and xu x + uu y = y u...
