MATH 251 FINAL EXAMINATION May 3, 2010 1. (6 points) Consider the autonomous equation y 0 = 4 y 2 - y 4 . Suppose y (99) = λ and lim t →∞ y ( t ) = 2, find all possible value(s) of λ . (a) - 2 < λ < (b) λ = 2 (c) 0 < λ < (d) 0 < λ < 2 2. (6 points) Consider the two problems below. ( I ) y 00 + λy = 0 , y (0) = 2 π, y 0 (0) = β. ( II ) y 00 + λy = 0 , y 0 (0) = 0 , y 0 (2 π ) = β. (a) Only ( I ) has a unique solution for every combination of real numbers λ and β . (b) Only ( II ) has a unique solution for every combination of real numbers λ and β . (c) Each has a unique solution for every combination of real numbers λ and β . (d) Neither is guaranteed to have a unique solution for every combination of real numbers λ and β . Page 2 of 12
