A176 Appendix A Ordinary Differential Equations: Review of Concepts and Methods Hence A =1 / 8 ,B =3 / 32; y p =( x 8 + 3 32 ) e - x ; and so the general solution y g = c 1 e x + c 2 e 3 x +( x 8 + 3 32 ) e - x . 33. Equation: y ±± + y = 1 2 + 1 2 cos 2 x ; Homogeneous equation: y ±± + y =0 ; Characteristic equation: λ 2 +1 = 0 Characteristic roots: λ 1 = - i, λ 2 = i ; Solution of homogeneous equation: y h = c 1 cos x + c 2 sin x. To Fnd a particular solution, we apply the method of undetermined coefficients. We also use our experience and simplify the solution by trying y p = 1 2 + A cos 2 x ; y ± p = - 2 A sin 2 x ; y ±± p = - 4 A cos 2 x. Plug into the equation y ±± + y = 1 2 + 1 2 cos 2 x : - 3 A cos 2 x + 1 2 = 1 2 + 1 2 cos 2 x ; - 3 A = 1 2 ;
