Unformatted text preview: MAT1332 Spring/Summer 2009 Assignment 5 Solutions 1. Consider the function f ( x , y ) : = x 2 y 2 x- 3 xy 3 (a) What is the gradient of f ? (b) What is ∂ 2 f ∂ yx ? (c) What is the tangent plane to f at the point (3,5) ? First, note that f ( x , y ) simplifies to f ( x , y ) = x y 2- 3 xy 3 . For (a), we observe that the gradient ∇ f of f is given by ∇ f ( x , y ) = £ y 2- 3 y 3 x 2- 9 xy 2 / For (b), we have that, since ∂ f ∂ x = y 2- 3 y 3 , ∂ 2 f ∂ yx = 1 2- 9 y 2 . For (c), we have that the tangent plane at (3,5) is given by z- f (3,5) = ( 5 2- 375)( x- 3) + ( 3 2- 675)( y- 5) =- 745 2 ( x- 3) + 1347 2 ( y- 5). Since f (3,5) =- 2235 2 we have z = ( 5 2- 375)( x- 3) + ( 3 2- 675)( y- 5)- 2235 2 =- 745 2 ( x- 3) + 1347 2 ( y- 5)- 2235 2 2. Solve the following linear system of differential equations ‰ dv dt = 6 v + w dw dt = 9 v- 2 w with intial conditions v = 7 and w = 2 . First we observe that the the coefficient matrix A = • 6 1 9- 2 ‚ 1 has characteristic polynomial ( A- λ I ) equal to λ 2- 4 λ- 21. This factors as ( λ- 7)( λ + 3) and therefore the eigenvalues are λ = 7,- 3. We now solve for the corresponding eigenvectors.3....
