Assignment #1 Due: At the START of tutorial on May 18, 2011. No late assignments will be accepted. 1. Find values of m so that the function y = x m is a solution of the di±erential equation x 2 y ′′ + 2 xy - 6 y = 0 for all x > 0. 2. (a) Verify that the ODE d 2 y dx 2 + 3 dy dx + 2 y = e x has the 2-parameter family of solutions y ( x ) = xe x + c 1 e x + c 2 e 2 x (b) Find the values of c 1 and c 2 for the initial conditions y (0) = 1 and y (0) = 0 3. Consider the ²rst-order ODE x dy dx = 2 y. (1) (a) Show that y ( x ) = Cx 2 satis²es (1). (b) Use the Theorem of Existence and Uniqueness to justify the solutions of this ODE for initial value y ( x 0 ) = y 0 . 4. Find the critical points and draw phase portrait of the autonomous ²rst order ODE

By hand, sketch typical solution curves in the regions in the xy plane determined by the graphs of the equilibrium solutions. 5. Solve the following initial value problems (a) x 2 y = 1-x 2 + y 2-( xy ) 2 with y (1) = 0 (b) (1 + x 2 ) dy dx + 2 xy = f ( x ) where f ( x ) = b x x < 1-x x 1 with the initial condition y (0) = 0. 1...
