Study guide for exam 1, math 20d, Fall 2010 Hint: Best way to study is to go over as many problems as you can in the book. Both my notes (L) and Boyce-DiPrima (BD). Correspondence is: L 0.2 is BD chapter 1 L chapter 1 (1.1,1.2,1.3,1.4,1.6) is BD chapter 2 L chapter 2 (2.1,2.2,2.3,2.4) is BD chapter 3 Here’s the summary. L 0.2: What is a differential equation and what is a mathematical model. Key terms: differential equation , initial value problem , initial condition(s) , the general solution , particular solution . L 1.1: Solution by integration, i.e. y 0 = f ( x ) or y 0 = f ( y ). L 1.2: Slope fields and Solution curves. Be able to sketch slope fields, solution curves. Note the existence and uniqueness theorem. L 1.3: Separable equations: y 0 = f ( x ) g ( y ). New key terms: implicit solution . L 1.4: Linear first order ODE. Know how to solve using the integrating factor . Study the mixture problem. L 1.6: Autonomous equations. Long term behaviour of solutions to autonomous equations. Key terms:
