Quiz 5 We consider the equation for all 0 < y < L : - d 2 G dx 2 ( x,y ) = δ ( x - y ) , 0 < x < L, (1) dG dx (0 ,y ) = 0 , G ( L,y ) = 0 . (2) 1. For fixed y , find the general solution of (1) on x (0 ,y ) and x ( y,L ). 2. Use the boundary conditions (2) on G to simplify the expression found in 1. 3. Show directly from (1) that - dG dx ( x,y ) = α + H ( x - y ) , where α is a constant and H ( x ) is the Heaviside function defined by H ( x ) = 1 for x > 0 and H ( x ) = 0 for x < 0. 4. Deduce from 3. that G is a continuous function in x . 5. Solve for G ( x,y ) and draw the graph of G ( x, L 2 ). 6. Show that φ n ( x ) = cos( π L ( n + 1 2 ) x ) and λ n = ( π L ( n + 1 2 )) 2 , for n = 0 , 1 , ··· , are solutions of - d 2 φ n dx 2 ( x ) = λ n φ n ( x ) , 0 < x < L, n dx (0) = 0 , φ n ( L ) = 0 . Find the coefficients α n ( y ) such that G ( x,y ) = X n =0 α n ( y ) φ n ( x ) . Solutions.
