Unformatted text preview: MthSc 208, Spring 2011 (Differential Equations) Dr. Macauley HW 12 Due Friday March 11th, 2011 (1) Find the general solution for each of the given system of equations. Draw a phase portrait. Describe the behavior of the solutions as t . (a) x = 5 1 3 1 x (b) x = 2 1 1 2 x (c) x = 1 1 4 2 x (d) x = 4 3 8 6 x (2) In each of the next four problems, the eigenvalues and eigenvectors of a matrix A are given. Consider the corresponding system x = Ax . Without using a computer, draw each of the following graphs. (i) Sketch a phase portrait of the system. (ii) Sketch the solution curve passing through the initial point (2 , 3). (iii) For the curve in part (ii), sketch the component plots of x 1 versus t and x 2 versus t on the same set of axes. (a) 1 = 1 , v 1 = 1 2 ; 2 = 4 , v 2 = 1 2 . (b) 1 = 1 , v 1 = 1 2 ; 2 = 4 , v 2 = 1 2 . (c) 1 = 1 , v 1 = 1 2 ; 2 = 4 , v 2 = 1 2 ....
