Answers to Selected Problems in Chapter 1 1. Problem Set 1.2.1 5) This is calculus! x ( t ) = (1 / 3) t 3 - e t + 3. 6) x ( t ) = 100 e 0 . 05 t . At t = 1 this gives 105 . 13, as compared with 105 . 12 for monthly compounding. 10) If ˙ x 0 then x = γ/α . The solution for Problem 7 for arbitrary initial data x (0) = k is x ( t ) = ( k - γ/α ) e - αt + γ/α, which tends to γ/α as t → ∞ since α > 0. 12) ∂s f ( s + t ) = ∂t f ( s + t ) = f 0 ( s + t ), so the partial-differential equation reduces to 2 f 0 = αf . The solution is u ( s,t ) = C exp((1 / 2) α ( s + t )) where C is an arbitrary constant. 14) The solution is x ( t ) = x 0 exp (sin t ); it is periodic. 20) Set F ( u,v ) = R u t 0 g ( v,s ) ds . If u = u ( t ) and v = v ( t ) and f ( t ) = F ( u ( t ) ,v ( t )), the chain rule gives f 0 ( t ) = ∂F ∂u u 0 ( t ) + ∂F ∂v v 0 ( t ) . Since f ( t ) = F ( t,t ) we put u ( t ) = v ( t ) = t , and obtain the stated result. 2. Problem Set 1.3.1 1) If ˙ x = k 0 x 1+ ± then x - (1+ ± ) dx dt = d dt ± - x - ± ² = k 0 , so x - ± = C - k 0 t where C is a constant. Evaluating this gives x ( t ) = ± x - ± 0 - ±k 0 t ² - (1 ) , which tends to infinity as t tends to t * = x - ± 0 /±k

Unformatted text preview: . 1 2) The function G of the hint satises the condition G ( x ,y ) = 0. Furthermore G y ( x ,y ) = 1 /g ( y ) 6 = 0 . Under these conditions the implicit-function theorem guarantees that there exists a unique solution y = ( x ) of the equation G ( x,y ) = 0 reducing to y when x = x , in a suciently small neighborhood of x . 5) The right-hand side is homogenous of degree zero and the so-lution, with y = xv , is given implicitly by Z v ds a + bs c + ds-s = ln x. 10) Since by assumption ( pM ) y = ( pN ) x and ( qM ) y = ( qM ) y it follows immediately that the same relation holds with p + q in place of p or q . 2...
