Unformatted text preview: CAAM 336 DIFFERENTIAL EQUATIONS Problem Set 9 Posted Thursday 28 October 2010. Due Wednesday 3 November 2010, 5pm. 1. [40 points] (a) Consider the function u ( x ) = 1 , x [0 , 1 / 3]; , x (1 / 3 , 2 / 3); 1 , x [2 / 3 , 1] . Recall that the eigenvalues of the operator L : C 2 N [0 , 1] C [0 , 1], Lu =- u 00 are n = n 2 2 for n = 0 , 1 ,... with associated (normalized) eigenfunctions ( x ) = 1 and n ( x ) = 2cos( nx ) , n = 1 , 2 ,.... We wish to write u ( x ) as a series of the form u ( x ) = X n =0 a n (0) n ( x ) , where a n (0) = ( u , n ). Compute these inner products a n (0) = ( u , n ) by hand and simplify as much as possible. For m = 0 , 2 , 4 , 80, plot the partial sums u ,m ( x ) = m X n =0 a n (0) n ( x ) . (You may superimpose these on one single, well-labeled plot if you like.) (b) Write down a series solution to the homogeneous heat equation u t ( x,t ) = u xx ( x,t ) , < x < 1 , t with Neumann boundary conditions...
