In this problem you are asked to prove the following existence and uniqueness theorem for Ordinary Differential Equations, known as Pi- cards theorem: Theorem 0.1 (Picards Existence Theorem) Consider ( x , y ) R R n , and a,b > . Consider the set D = [ x a,x + a ] B ( y ,b ) and a function f : D R n , with f continuous and Lipschitz with respect to y in D . Then we know that there is M > such that bardbl f ( x, y ) bardbl M for all ( x, y ) D . Then the Cauchy problem C.P. : braceleftbigg y = f ( x, y ) y ( x ) = y (1) admits a solution , defined at least in the interval [ x ,x + ] , with = min { a, b M } . (a) Prove that y : I R n is a solution to the Cauchy problem C.P. : braceleftbigg y = f ( x, y ) y ( x ) = y (2) if and only if y ( x ) = y + integraldisplay x x f ( t, y ( t )) dt x I. (3) (b) Consider the complete metric space X = C ([ I ;...
