AMath 350 Assignment #8 Fall 2013 Solutions 1. Following the hint, we have Z 1 0 e ( x - x 2 ) dx = Z 1 0 e - ( x 2 - x ) dx = Z 1 0 e - h ( x - 1 2 ) 2 - 1 4 i dx = e 1 4 Z 1 0 e - ( x - 1 2 ) 2 dx. Now, letting u = x - 1 2 , this becomes e 1 4 Z 1 2 - 1 2 e - u 2 du and since the integrand is even, this is 2 e 1 4 Z 1 2 0 e - u 2 du. Using the definition of the error function, this can be expressed as 2 e 1 4 p 2 erf 1 2 ◆◆ = p e 1 4 erf 1 2 1 . 1846 . 2. For each of the following second order, linear PDEs, determine in which regions of R 2 the region is hyperbolic, parabolic, and elliptic. Sketch and label the regions. a) yu xx - 4 u xy + 2 yu yy + e xy u x - x 3 u = xye x 2

With the transformation = p ax , = y , we have @ u @ x = @ ˆ u @⇠ d dx = p a @ ˆ u @⇠ and @ 2 u @ x 2 = @ @ x @ u @ x = @ @ x p a @ ˆ u @⇠ = p a @ @⇠ @ ˆ u @⇠ d dx = a @ 2 ˆ u @⇠ 2 . Meanwhile, @ u @ y = @ ˆ u @⌘ , and @ 2 u @ y 2 = @ 2 ˆ u @⌘ 2 . Hence the given equation u xx + au yy + bu x + cu y + du = f becomes a ˆ u ⇠⇠ + a ˆ u ⌘⌘ + p ab ˆ u + c ˆ u + d ˆ u = f, that is, ˆ u ⇠⇠ + ˆ u ⌘⌘ + b p a ˆ u + c a ˆ u + d a ˆ u = f a . 4. u xx + 2 u xy - 15 u yy = 1 Notice that b 2 - 4 ac = 64 > 0 , so the equation is hyperbolic. This means that we can solve it by the method of characteristics. To find the characteristics, we need to solve the equations

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
