2. d. The ODEs in this case are dx dt = 2 du dt = e 2 x Solve the characteristic equation x = 2 t + x 0 Now solve the second ODE. To do that we have to plug in for x du dt = e 2( x 0 2 t ) = e 2 x 0 e 4 t u ( x, t )= e 2 x 0 1 4 e 4 t ± + K The constant of integration can be found from the initial condition cos( x 0 )= u ( x 0 , 0) = 1 4 e 2 x 0 + K Therefore K =co s ( x 0 )+ 1 4 e 2 x 0 Plug this K in the solution and substitute for x 0 from the characteristic curve u ( x, t )= 1 4 e 2( x +2 t ) e 4 t +cos( x +2 t )+ 1 4 e 2( x +2 t ) u ( x, t )= 1 4 e 2 x e 4 t 1 +co s ( x +2 t )
