Chapter 10 / Re: S 10.1 Lemma
« Last post by Victor Ivrii on April 02, 2023, 05:15:13 AM »
This condition is not necessary. However more conditions to $\phi$ lead to a lesser class of admissible $\phi$ in the assumption  and thus to weaker assumption of Lemma 1, and thus to stronger and more general statement.

Chapter 10 / S 10.1 Lemma
« Last post by Issra on April 01, 2023, 07:31:40 AM »
Posted here since there is no section for Chapter 10.

In Lemma 1 in S10.1, why is the condition $\phi(t_0) = \phi(t_1) = 0$ necessary?

Section 4.1ODE is not enough. You need to take into account also boundary conditions. See Section 4.1

Test 2 / 2022 midterm 2 solution: Possible typos?
« Last post by ravanasa on March 22, 2023, 10:02:57 PM »
I've been looking through the midterm solutions from 2022 to study for the midterm coming up. I was wondering if it's possible there are typos in the solutions, or if you can explain the following if I am misunderstanding something:

1. In problem 1 of Main Sitting 2022, there is the equation T' + 4λT = 0. I believe this should be T'' + 4λT = 0, with the first T as a second derivative.

2. In problem 1 of Morning Sitting 2022, there is equation 4T'' + λT = 0. I believe this should be T'' + 9λT = 0.
In the same question, Tn = An cos(nt) + Bn sin(nt). I believe this should be Tn = An cos(3nt) + Bn sin(3nt).
In the same question, there are initial boundary conditions dependent on the value of t. I believe in the solution when plugging these in, they are swapped.

3. In problem 3 of Main Sitting 2022, there u(r,θ) =B0 /2 + (a sum). Then u(1,θ) = A0 /2 + (a sum). I'm not sure how B0 turned into A0 in this.

Thank you!

Chapter 6 / Question while calculating the solution to Laplace using separation of vars
« Last post by Zhonghan CHEN on March 19, 2023, 12:46:09 AM »
Hi Prof:

I have a question for solving the Laplacian operation using the separation of variables.
Slide: Week 9 Lecture 1 Page 4.

The queston happens in solving ${\theta}'' + \lambda \theta = 0$.

Q: I do not understand how do you derive the $\lambda_{n} = n^2$.

Also, I do not understand why we can get a expression for $\lambda$ ? To my understading, $\lambda$ is just a constant in the ODE.

Thanks

Chapter 4 / Re: When is it a good idea to assume solutions are separable?

If domain is "simple" in the appropriate coordinate system it is a good idea to try to find such solutions. For linear equations we even can construct general solutions as linear combinations of such solutions. Details in the class later.

When is it a good idea to assume solutions are separable? Are there any implied assumptions about the nature of the solutions when we assume that they are separable?

I will post solutions to show that all the integrals can be computed using elementary functions and $\operatorname{erf}(.)$

Chapter 3 / Solving Heat equation

Dear Prof Ivrii,
I did some home assignment for heat equation problems to prepare the quiz, and I found some integrals seems hard to compute. So I am wondering if we need to compute the integral completely correct to get the full mark when do the quiz, or just simplify the heat formula is fine? Thank you.
