MA 262 Exam 1 Study Guide: Chapter 1: Main Ideas: 1. Seperable: p(y)dy = q(x)dx à integral p(y)dy = integral q(x)dx +c st 2. 1 order linear: y’ + p(x)y = g(x) à I(x) = e^integral p(x)dx à sty)’ = Ig(x) 3. 1 order homogenous: y’ = F(x, y) à V = y/x –separable DE for V ày = Vx 4. Berinoilli n Y’ + p(x)1 – n(x)y à V = y –first order linear for V à y = 1/(V 1 – ) 5. Exact DE Mdx + Ndy = 0 à integral Mdx à integral Ndy *and don’t repeat terms 1.2 Basic Ideas: • Definitions: o Linear/nonlinear differential equation § y, y’, y”, y’” … all must have a power of 1 BUT the x terms may have non linear terms o solution § any differential function y = f(x) is a solution to a DE if it satisfies the DE • Order of a differential equation – the order of a DE is the order of the highest derivative occurring in the DE • General form of an nth order linear DE (n) (n-1) (1) o a (x0y + a (x)1 +… a n-1y + a (x)n = f(x) àif it is not in this form then the DE is non linear o only care about the y terms NOT the x terms st 1.3 The geometry of a 1 order DE • Definitions: o solution curve § the graph of any solution to the DE o equilibrium solution § any solution to f(x, y) = 0 with y = constant is an equilibrium solution to the DE dy/dx = f(x, y) • Theorem: o Existence and uniqueness theorem dy/dx = f(x,y) y(x 0 = y 0– (x0, y0) -has a unique solution in R = (x,y)|a =< x =< b |c =< y =< d where (x ,0 )0is inside the region of R, if both f(x, y) and partial f/partial y (x,y) are continuous functions in R because each family of curves has to follow the same shape and will therefor never touch § Slope field—sketch many small line segments which present the solution curve 1.4 § Definitions: o Separable DE § A first order DE is called separable if it can be written in the form p(y) dy/dx = q(x) § Theorem: o If q(y) and q(x) are continuous functions, then p(y) dy/dx = q(x) has a solution Integral p(y) dy = integral q(x) dx +c § Equations: o dT/dt = -k(T – T ) 0 § T = temperature, t = time, k = constant (negative because cooling), T = 0 room temperature (constant), dT/dt = rate of change proportional to the difference of temperature of the object and room temperature multiplied by k § T = T 0à equilibrium solution T = f(t) If T is not equal to T 0then dT/(T – T ) 0 -kdt T = T 0+ ce^-kt c >= 0 à general solution for any newton’s law of cooling 1.5 Simple Population Models § Malthusian growth model – no limit on the growth of the population dP/dt = kP where k is constant P = ce^(kt) c > 0 § Definition: o Doubling time t d § The time required for a culture to double in size t is tde time for P = 2P 0 § td = ln(2)/k § Logistic Population Model – a limit on the growth of the population dP/dt = r(1 – P/c)P -r = rate, c = capacity of population P = cP0/(P 0+ (c – P 0e^(-rt)) st 1.6 1 order linear DE § Definition: o A 1 order DE has the form a(x) dy/dx +b(x)y = c(x) OR dy/dx +p(x)y = g(x) à standard form § If a 1 order DE is in the standard form: 1. Let I(x) = e^(integral p(x)dx not equal to zero -then multiply both sides of the equation by I(x) 2. (I(x)y)’ = I(x)g(x) 3. y =( integral I(x)g(x) dx +c)/I(x) st 1.7 Application for 1 order DE § Mixing Problem Equations: o v = volume, c = concentration, r = rate, A = amount \ o v = (r 1 r )2 + c ; c = v0 o dA/dt = c r 1 1 r 2 2c r 1 1r /(2r –1r )2 + v )0 1.8 Change of Variables Lecture § Definition: o f(x,y) is a homogenous function of degree 0 if f(tx, ty) = f(x,y) for all partial values t o Berinoilli equation has the form dy/dx + p(x)y = g(x)y where n is constant st -n = 0 is a 1 order DE -n = 1 is seperable § Berinoilli equation: 1-n -n 1. Set u = y ; du/dx = 1-n(y) dx/dy 2. Substitute into equation à 1/(1-n) du/dx + p(x)u = g(x) n 3. Divide both sides by y to get du/dx by itself 4. Solve as a 1 order DE 1.9 Exact DE § Definition o Exact DE § M(x, y)dx + N(x, y)dy = 0 = M(x, y) + N(x, y)dy/dx is exact if there exists a function ø(x, y) such that ∂ø/∂x = M(x, y) and ∂ø/∂y = N(x, y) § ø(x, y) is called a potential function of the DE o An non zero function I(x, y) is an integrating factor for Mdx +Ndy = 0 IF I(x, y)M(x , y)dx +I(x, y)N(x, y)dy = 0 is exact § Theorem o Test for exactness § M(x, y)dx + N(x,y)dy = 0 is exact if and only if ∂M/∂y = ∂N/∂x § The general solution to an exact DE is ø(x, y) = c § If ∂M/∂y does NOT equal ∂N/∂x 1. Find integrating factor by steps below 2. I(x, y) = e^integral f(x)dx or I(x, y) = e^integral g(y)dy 3. Solve new M and N values o Consider M(x, y)dy + N(x, y)dy = 0 1. If (M – N /N = f(x), then I(x, y) = e^integral f(x)dx à function of x ONLY y x( 2. If (N x– M /y(= g(y), then I(x, y) = e^integral g(y)dx à function of y ONLY 3. Solve for ø(x, y) as before § Solving for DE during exam: 1. Integral M(x, y)dx = Integral N(x, y)dy = 2. Then take both integrals and add each term together once, ignoring repeating terms Ex) = 3x+4y = 3x + 123 ø(x, y) = 3x + 123 = c 1.10 nd § 2 order DE y” = F(x, y, y’) V = dy/dx dV/dx = y’’ à dV/dx = F(x, y, y’) o cases in which we can use dV/dx: 1. with y missing in F dV/dx = F(x, V) à solve for V from above equation dy/dx = V à solve for y 2. with x missing in F dV = F(y,V) dy/dx = V d y/dx = d/dx (dy/dx) = dV/dx = dV/dy/V = V dV/dy = F(y, V) Chapter 2: 2.1 Matrix Vectors • Definition o Matrix § An m x n matrix is a rectangular array of numbers arranged in m rows and n columns § Square matrix = n x n § Represented with capital letters § A = [aij]; I = ith row; j = jth column o A = B if 1.
