Unformatted text preview: Chapter 4 Hence, a second linearly independent solution is y 2 ( t ) = t- 2 Z t- 6 dt ( t- 2 ) 2 = t- 2 Z t- 2 dt =- t- 3 . One can also take y 2 ( t ) = t- 3 , because the given equation is linear and homogeneous. 48. Putting the equation in standard form yields p ( t ) = t- 1- 2. Hence, exp- Z p ( t ) dt = exp Z ( 2- t- 1 ) dt = e 2 t- ln t = t- 1 e 2 t . Therefore, by Theorem 8, a second linearly independent solution is y 2 ( t ) = e t Z t- 1 e 2 t ( e t ) 2 dt = e t Z t- 1 dt = e t ln t. 50. Separation variables in (16) yields w w =- 2 y 1 + py 1 y 1 =- 2 y 1 y 1 + p . Integrating, we obtain Z w w dt =- Z 2 y 1 y 1 + p dt =- 2 Z y 1 y 1 dt- Z pdt ⇒ ln | w | =- 2 ln | y 1 | - Z pdt ⇒ | w | = y- 2 1 exp- Z pdt . Obviously, w ( t ) does not change its sign on I (the right-hand side does not vanish on I ). Without loss of generality, we can assume that w > 0 on I and so v = w = y- 2 1 exp- Z pdt ⇒ v = Z exp- R pdt y 2 1 dt ⇒ y 2 = y 1 v = y 1 Z exp- R pdt y 2 1 dt. 52. For y ( t ) = v ( t ) f ( t ) = tv ( t ), we find y = tv + v , y 00 = tv 00 + 2 v , y 000 = tv 000 + 3 v 00 . Substituting y and its derivatives into the given equation, we get t ( tv 000 + 3 v 00 ) + (1- t ) ( tv 00 + 2 v ) + t ( tv + v )- tv 156 Exercises 4.8 = t 2 v 000- ( t 2- 4 t ) v 00 + ( t 2- 2 t + 2) v = 0 . Hence, denoting v = w (so that v 00 = w and v 000 = w 00 ) yields t 2 w 00- ( t 2- 4 t ) w + ( t 2- 2 t + 2) w = 0 , which is a second order linear homogeneous equation in w ....
