APM346 Misc / Bug in HA total calculation?
« on: December 21, 2012, 02:15:04 PM »
I think there might be some bug with the total homework mark calculation mentioned in this post ( http://forum.math.toronto.edu/index.php?topic=162.msg987#msg987 ).

Calculating my total homework mark using the same formula, I get a total HA mark 2 points greater than the one I see online on Portal. Does anyone else have a similar issue? I wonder if it might affect people who did not submit HA9 in particular, since I did not submit it, and know of someone else who did not submit it who seemed to have the same problem.

Cheers,

Ian

Final Exam / Problem 3
« on: December 20, 2012, 01:32:15 PM »
Use separation of variables to solve the Dirichlet problem for the Laplacian on the unit disk $\mathbb{D} = \{ (x,y) \in \mathbb{R}^2: x^2 + y^2 < 1\}$ with boundary condition $u(1, \theta) = \cos \theta.$
(The boundary condition is described in polar coordinates $(r, \theta) \rightarrow u(r, \theta)$ along $r=1$).



hopeful solution attached! (since djirar is posting all the solutions right away after 13:30..)

Misc Math / Lecture 26 Equation 13 Question
« on: November 28, 2012, 12:34:26 AM »
Hi,

It looks like a mysterious 77 slipped its way into Equation 13 of Lecture 26: http://www.math.toronto.edu/courses/apm346h1/20129/L26.html#mjx-eqn-eq-13 .

I assume this is a typo?

Cheers,

Ian

Home Assignment 7 / Problem 4

For Problem 4, it seems the solution can only defined up to a constant - is that alright?

APM346 Misc / Dropping two worst assignments
« on: October 24, 2012, 03:40:08 PM »
Hi all,

I noticed on http://www.math.toronto.edu/courses/apm346h1/20129/about_home_assignments.html that it says

Quote
  • Two worst assignments (included those you did not submit and got 0) will be dropped;
  • So, if there will be 10 assignments, only 8 will be counted and each would contribute 2.5 to the Term Mark;

To be clear, does this mean that no matter how many assignments there are, 2 will be dropped? (Ex. if we had 8 assignments, only 6 would be counted, and each would contribute 3.3% to the Term Mark.)

Misc Math / Lecture 12 Eqn 9 Question
« on: October 24, 2012, 01:59:26 AM »
Hi all,

Just to clarify - should equation 9 in the notes for lecture 12 (http://www.math.toronto.edu/courses/apm346h1/20129/L12.html#mjx-eqn-eq-9) read

$\lambda_n = - n^2 \pi^2 / l^2$ ?

Cheers,

Ian
