MPO 662 – Problem Set 1 Feel free to use symbolic computation software such as mathematica or the symbolic toolbox in matlab to carry out the algebra 1. Classify the following PDEs (a) u tt + u xx + u x = - e - kt (b) u xx - u xy + u y = 4 2. Find the characteristics of the each of the following PDEs (a) u xx + 3 u xy + u yy = 0 (b) u xx - 2 u xy + u yy = 0 3. Consider the following PDE: ∂t + U ∂x ! 2 ψ - c 2 2 ψ ∂x 2 = 0 where U and c are positive constants, and the first term is to be interpreted as: 2 ψ ∂t 2 + 2 U 2 ψ ∂x∂t + U 2 2 ψ ∂x 2 Classify this PDE Find the Characteristic lines sketch the domain of dependence and the domain of influence in the x - t plane for the point ( x 0 ,t 0 ). Consider the case U > c and U < c . 4. Consider the heat equation u t = νu xx , where ν is the heat diffusion coefficient, on the interval 0 x L with the following boundary conditions u (0 ,t ) = 0 and u ( L,t ) = U . Non-dimensionalize this equation using L as a length scale, and U as a u -scale, and an appropriately scaled time.
