Do you mean $u_t + tu_x=0$? Then $\frac{dt}{1} = \frac{dx}{t}=\frac{du}{0}$. The first equation implies $$dx=tdt \implies x=\frac{1}{2}t^2+C\implies x-\frac{1}{2}t^2=C.$$

I obtain solutions for all 4 subproblems, except two of them with arbitrary function.
No, your solution is incorrect because it is not a continuous single-valued function. I gave you a hint: what is the natural parameter along integral curves?

Sure, $x$ and $y$ are not independent along integral curves. To proceed you need to parametrize the integral curve. Think: what is the best way to parametrize it?

Please learn how to post math properly  Also, asking for help, copy the problem.

Since integral curves are rays (straight half-lines) from $(0,0)$  the solution in the plane wit the punched out origin is any function, constant along these rays, in particular $u=f(y/x)$.

But if we want solution in the whole plane, $u$ must be continuous at $(0,0)$ and since all rays intersect there $u$ is just a constant.

Read Section 2.1, Subsection  "semilinear equations"

Junjing, you are right but I am not sure if anyone but me would be able to read your solution

You draw just a bit more than one period and say "$\pi$-periodic"

Physical interpretation is useful. However Quizzes, Tests and Exam neither test nor require any knowledge of Physics. Like in ODE or Calculus I, II classes.

Welcome to this forum!

The main purpose of this forum is not the communication with instructors but peer-to-peer. I noticed that some of you answer the questions of your peers and I really appreciate, but I would like to see more -- much more -- of this!

It runs as aid to the class website. More permanent and systematic information is placed on website, while forum is for discussion. Please read before registering!

  • You can select any username (login) you want (take a rather short one). Username is what only you (and Admin) can see.
  • However  change your (screen) Name  (the one which everybody sees) to one easily identifiable (Admin should be able to identify you with a student enrolled to this course--and matching BlackBoard name; otherwise your posting privileges could be reduced or revoked):  Open Profile > Account Settings and look for "Name".
  • It would be preferable to use your University of Toronto email address.
  • BTW you can have a cool avatar too. Please do not display any confidential info.
  • You cannot change the loginname (used for login).  But there is no need.  Nobody except you knows your password - even Admins - but Admins don't need  to know it.

Some forum rules
  • Please use different boards according to their description (I will create new ones if needed).
  • Do not hijack topics: if a topic is devoted to some question, do not post anything which is not related. Start a new topic.
  • On the other hand, do not start new topic answering to the existing post; use the same topic.
  • Do not put in the same post several not related things - make several posts instead (in different topics).
  • Do not post solution which coincides with the solution already posted by someone else; exception: typed solution beats the scanned one.
  • Do not spam (post irrelevant messages, especially to promote something), flood (post many messages with very little or no sense, like "me too", "I like this post", ...) or flame (messages, containing personal attacks and heated arguments).
  • Do not thank instructors.
  • Do not post snapshots of paper documents, scan them (with the scanner or smartphone).
  • Do not use red color (it belongs to Admins and Moderators), large fonts
  • Read and search before postings.
  • Use common sense.

  • This semester karma does not translates into Bonus mark points (there are plenty reasons for this) 
  • On the other hand, your posts and active participation in the class will be a decisive factor if you ask me for a recommendation letter for a Graduate School. To write such letter I need to know something about you beyond your marks (and your final mark is in the transcript anyway). Participation in the forum automatically leaves a trace.

Have questions?
  • If you have a question which you think is of general interest--ask it on the Forum rather than via email.

  • Both this forum and website use MathJax to display mathematics.

MAT244--Misc / Re: Quiz 5 explanation (was Unfair quiz)

For those who had < 4 for this Quiz Quiz mark was based on the best 4.5 quizzes (which means that the 5-th best had a half weight).

Karma * 0.4. I extracted karma from database but because I did it in rush to submit emarks before Dean's office closes , I could miss several students, especially those whose Screen name on forum differed from their Quercus name. Please email me, if it is the case: I am planning to amend marks Dec 24. My changes will not affect ACORN marks until Jan 8 for sure, and may be a bit later

MAT244--Misc / Re: When should we expect the marks?
« on: December 20, 2018, 01:58:07 PM »
for  Quizzes and Bonuses Fri
Final -- I hope Fri (actually, I am required to do it in 7 business days)  but it depends on circumstances beyond my control. First, other graders. I graded the most difficult to grade P5 in 4 days, then I graded MAT334, and some of graders still have not finished. If they finish tonight, I will do my overhead overnight and submit Friday morning.

Second, marks need to be approved. If they are not approved by our undergraduate chair and then Dean's office before 5 pm, they are delayed until the first day of the next semester, and I am not allowed to release Crowdmark links until their approval.

(a) We consider inverse transform $z=g(w)$, since we know that it maps $\frac{1}{2}$ into $0$. It must be
g(w)=\lambda \frac{w-a}{1- w\bar{a}}\\
\text{with $|\lambda|=1$ and $a=\frac{1}{2}$:}\\
g(w)=\lambda \frac{2w-1}{2- w}.
Since $g(-1)=1$ we have $1=\lambda \frac{-2-1}{2+1}\implies \lambda=-1 $ and therefore
g(w)= - \frac{2w-1}{2- w}=z \implies  (2w-1)=-z(2-w)\implies w= \frac{2z-1}{z-2}=: f(z).  $$

\frac{2z-1}{z-2}=z\implies 2z-1=z^2-2z\implies z^2-4z +1=0\implies z=2\pm \sqrt{3}.$$
These are "black" points on the picture.

(c) Then $f' = \frac{2(z-2)-(2z-1)}{(z-2)^2}=-3 (z-2)^{-2}$; $f'(0)= -3/4$ and therefore stretch is $|-3/4|= 3/4$ and rotation is $\arg(-3/4)= \pi$.
