Amath 353 Partial Differential Equations Highlights Eleftherios means free Kirkinis February 157 2008 Abstract Review of solution techniques developed and the corresponding applied mathemat ical constructions Not all subjects to be examined are included here 1 Midterm Review The Midterm will be comprehensive Everything we covered up to and including homework 6 No characteristics no applications just methodology to solve problems In particular give special attention to the following homework problems HW2 Problems 1273475 HW3 All problems HW4 Problems 24the Parseval Part7 6778 HW5 all are important but the essential ones are 476 HW6 All Full solution to some of the problems are in the three Fourier series hand outs The hand out on average values and Parseval should also be reviewed Review the accompanying document with possible exam questions Last year exam is similar to your midterm If you solve and understand the problems of 2007 midterm you most likely be in the 70 range This document is not very well proof read so there might be some typos below 2 Solution methods for homogeneous no source heat equation in a nite domain We are solving ut 042 m E 07 L 1 B03

the average total energy7 is proportional to the sum of the energies of each individual mode 7 Fourier Transforms highlights An important by product of the Fourier Transform technique is the calculation of integrals and the integral representation of certain functions For example in class we showed that the seemingly intractable integral fxw1kzekdx 27 can easily be calculated by resorting to the actual form of f that we used to derive it ie 6 7 gt0 m 64 x lt 0 lt28 Furthermore7 the Fourier lntegral Theorem guarantees that at a point of jump of r7 the integral will converge to the mid point of the jump7 and thus giving us zero in the above problem While in Fourier k space7 given F1k 172k where f 1F1k f1 and f 1F2k f2 known functions7 what is the inverse Fourier transform of the product F1k F2k ie what is f71F1k 39 F200 29 The answer is the convolution of f1 with f2 1 0 13 as f2c E w m e uf2udu lt30 Using this property of the FT7s we can now solve many PDEs in the in nite domain ie all the problems in homework 6
