Homework assignment 3 * Due date: Friday November 9, 2007 1. Consider the following model of a bioreactor with two species with concentrations x and y : ˙ x = x ( f (1 - x - y ) - 1) ˙ y = y ( g (1 - x - y ) - 1) , where ( x, y ) T = { ( x, y ) R 2 | x > 0 , y > 0 , x + y < 1 } . The functions f and g are differentiable functions with f (0) = g (0) = 0 with f 0 , g 0 > 0. Show that this system has no non-trivial periodic solutions in T . 2. In class we discussed the van der Pol oscillator which we showed could be written as follows: ˙ x = x + y - x 3 / 3 ˙ y = - x We showed that the van der Pol oscillator has a nontrivial periodic solution in a certain annular region that did not contain the origin. We did not completely prove that this region is a trapping region, and the purpose of this problem is to fill the gap by doing the following:

Find the rst three terms of two linearly independent solutions of 2 x ( x-1) y 00 + 3( x-1) y-y = 0 , x &gt; . 4. Consider Laguerres equation: xy 00 + (1-x ) y + ny = 0 , where n is a nonnegative integer. Show that for every n , this equation has a polynomial solution L n ( x ) and determine L , L 1 , L 2 and L 3 (This is problem 24 from section 8.7 in our text). 5.
