Show that L ( f ( at ) ) = 1 a F ( s a ) , a > . Solution: L ( f ( at ) ) = Z ∞ e- st f ( at ) dt = Z ∞ 1 a e- su a f ( u ) du ( u = at ; du = adt ) = 1 a F ( s a ) . 2. Solve the following initial value problem and discuss the interval of existence (1 + t ) x + x = cos t ; x (- π 2 ) = 0 . Solution: Observe that the left hand side equals d dt ((1 + t ) x ). Then (1 + t ) x = Z cos t dt = sin t + C, ( C ∈ R ) . Inserting the initial condition we get: 0 = sin(- π 2 ) + C....
