MTH256:WEEK 0-1 Wednesday Week 0, September 21 , 2016 Basic Definitions: Differential Equation: equation involving an unknown function and its derivatives Order: “diffyQ” depends on the highest order derivative seen in the function Ordinary Differential Equation (ODE): involves a function of only one variable Solution: a function y=f(x) that satisfies the equation on some open interval Solution Curve: graph of the solution Integral Curve: For an ODE, it’s the graph of a relation where any segment of that graph that represents the graph of the ODE function is a solution curve Direction Fields aka Slope Fields: if f is defined on some rectangle R in the xy-plane, then a graph consisting of the line segments of the slope f(x,y) at each (x,y) is called a direction field The General Solution: expressions with arbitrary constants that you can impose conditions upon Ex. Given a function, verify that another function is a solution Friday Week 0, September 23 , 2016rd Linear First Order: a first order ODE is linear if it can be put into the form y’+p(x)y=f(x) aka, standard form. Otherwise it is not linear Homogeneous: obvious/trivial solution to linear ODE in standard form aka, we know y=0 Ex. For each of the equations, determine if it is linear. If so, determine if it is homogeneous Monday Week 1, Sept. 26 , 2016h Review and more examples! Special Cases: Also did an application problem called “Mixing Problems”: 1. Set up differential equation 2. Model IVP 3. Integration factor 4. Impose constraints Began discussing separable equations: Separable: a first order differential equation is separable if it can be written as h(y)y’=g(x) Wednesday Week 1, September 28 , 2016th *Pop Quiz Today!* worth 10 points Ex. Solve Each Separable Equation Mixing Problem Example: th Friday Week 1, September 30 , 2016 Proposition: Suppose g(x) is continuos on (a,b) and h(y) is continuous on (c,d). let G(x), H(y) be antiderivatives of g(x) and h(y) on each interval. Let x be a0point on (a,b) and y be a poi0t on (c,d) such that h(y 0 does not =0 and defines c=H(y )-G(x 0 0 Conclusion: Then there is a function y(x) defined on (a,b) contained in (a,b) such that H’(y(x))y’(x)=G’(x) Which is an implicit solution because sometimes you can’t solve all the way through for x an y, but you can solve for a relationship that makes it true
