Solve the following special case of this boundary-value problem: Find u(x), deﬁned for 0 ≤ x ≤ 1 such that d2 u + x(1 − x) = 0, dx2 u(0) = 0, u(1) = 0. d. (For students with access to Mathematica) Use Mathematica to graph the solution to the following boundary-value problem: Find u(x), deﬁned for 0 ≤ x ≤ 1 such that d2 u + (1 + x2 )u = 0, dx2 u(0) = 50, u(1) = 100. You can do this by running the Mathematica program: a = 0; b = 1; alpha = 50; beta = 100; sol = NDSolve[ {u’’[x] + (1 + x∧2) u[x] == 0, u[a] == alpha, u[b] == beta.}, u, {x,a,b}]; Plot[ Evaluate[ u[x] /. sol], {x,a,b}] 4.1.2.a. Show that the function u0 (x, t) = √ 1 −x2 /4t e 4πt is a solution to the heat equation (4.6) for t > 0 in the case where κ/(ρσ ) = 1. ¯ b. Use the chain rule with intermediate variables x = x − a, t = t to show that ¯ ua (x, t) = √ 1 −(x−a)2 /4t e 4πt 84 is also a solution to the heat equation. c. Show that ∞ −∞ u0 (x, t)dx = 1...
