[Geoffrey Hunter] Wed: 5 students I began the tutorial making some general remarks on the midterm results for Question 1 & 2 (i.e. use a trig identity for Q?n 1 and make sure that they answer the question for 2 b. Most students wrote a test for separability ? not the linearity or quadrature tests that you had asked them to do). I showed the students how to write up the logic of Question 3.4-40 and showed them how to solve 3.4-20.

12 Oct Page 212, 3.6: 6, 20, 32, 40, 60 will be due on 17 Oct.

12 Oct Page 233, 4.1: 16, 20, 32 will be due 17 Oct.

Presented in the 5:55pm lecture was 3.4-20,30,34,40 solutions plus 3.5-16,26,44 solutions. Started Ch4 with a lecture on 4.1 and two examples on independence. About 3/4 of the class left before the lecture ended, possibly because of Friday exams and the need to study for exams. Slides presented during the lecture are referenced above. Information on 3.4, 3.5 problems exists only in the lecture notes. Be warned that reading Edwards-Penney is no easy task: it takes outside reading to understand what is written there. The ideas of independence, presented in the lecture, appear partly in the lecture notes (web ref above) and partly in solutions to problems, presented in class. If you missed the lecture, then ask students, who attended, for lecture notes, and a tutorial on the ideas.

02 Oct Exam 1 review continued: problems 3,4.

Elementary matrices. Thm: rref(A1)=E_k ... E_2 E_1 A1, a matrix A1 (frame 1) has RREF (last frame) equal to the product of elementary matrices times A1. Each elementary matrix corresponds to the swap, combo or mult operation present in a frame of the sequence taking A1 to the last frame rref(A1). Inverses. Definition, uniqueness, formula for 2x2 case. Inverse answer check: AB=I does it, because by a theorem, this implies the other relation BA=I.

More on inverses and computation. Inversion by adjugate matrix and determinant theory (to be finished in 3.6). Inversion of A by augmentation of the identity: let C=aug(A,I), compute a frame sequence to rref(C), and read off the inverse of A from the right panel. Proof of this fact in the 2x2 case, and how to generalize the proof to nxn matrices. Examples from 3.4, 3.5 problems. Started determinant theory. College algebra definition, Sarrus' rule, cofactor expansion definition.

We are behind the lecture schedule, catching up. This was due to missing about 1 day and getting behind about 1 day. Partial catch-up by skipping 2.3 (dailies are now extra credit).

[Goeffrey Hunter] Wed Tutorial: Only 3 students showed on Wed (rainy day). I announced the information on the web site for the test review and that the students should review the material before the in class review sessions. I also reannounced that Maple Lab #2 is on-line. Students asked how they can use Maple to solve Euler's method. I suggested an alternate solution method, shown below.

Continued linear algebra and simultaneous linear equations. Reduced echelon system. Cramer's rule and the three possibilities: (1) No sol, (2) Infinitely many sols, (3) Unique solution. The result: determinant not zero if and only if (3); determinant zero if and only (1) or (2). The three rules for elimination. Snapshot sequence example 2x2. Frames. First frame==original system, Last Frame==reduced echelon system. Logic: in the unique solution case (3), the reduced echelon system is a list of equations in variable list order, which assigns to each variable a unique number. The list has this essential property: each nonzero equation has a leading variable, i.e., a variable that appears just once in the whole list, and it appears first, read left-to-right, with coefficient 1. How to write the general solution in the infinitely many solution case (2). Signal equation and no solution, which means no equations for the variables and no answer check (there is no answer to check!). Due Tuesday: 3.1 problems.

## Week 4, Sep 12,13,14: Sections 2.5,2.6,3.1.

We are behind the lecture schedule, catching up.

On 1.5-34: there was a lecture in class. You were left to discover the input concentration constant c_i, and solve the initial value problem x'=r_i c_i - (r_0/v)x, x(0)=x_0. The initial value is x_0 = (0.25/100)8000=20, using units of millions of cubic feet. You should have obtained the model x'=1/4 -x/16, x(0)=20. Covered in class for 2.1, 2.2: theory of autonomous DE y'=f(y), stability, funnel, spout, phase diagram, asymptotic stability, unstable, equil solution, verhulst models with harvesting and periodic free term. You should be working on problem 2.1-8.

Content [Geoffrey Hunter]: We discussed question 1.5-34 in both sections in great detail. Started with the dp/dt = stuff in - stuff out equation and derived the full DE, partly intuitive. Discussed units and ways to check units, a sanity check. Solved 2.1-15. Reviewed partial fractions, applied theory to a problem. Both sections also wanted further clarification as to the purpose of the integrating factor and when to use it. On Tues, I showed two different ways that 1.5-20 could be solved (integrating factor and separation of variables), while on Wed I just went through question 1.5-18. Maple labs discussed: 1,2. Sources on www.

Content [Hwanyong Lee]: I distributed maple lab2. We discussed about maple lab 1, like how to control the size of plots and how to solve etc. Discussed how to find the general solution of the linear first-order equation. Solved problem 1.5-18. In addition, we discussed about the existence of the unique solution of the linear first-order equation by looking at Peano Thm and Picard-Lindelof Thm. Sec.2.1, 2.2 next time, if at all.

29 Aug: Collected in class Page 16, 1.2: 2, 4, 6, 10. Problems 1.2 discussed in class. Maple and Matlab methods. Integral table methods. The Three Examples introduced in week 1 were continued. Panels 1 and 2 in the answer check for an initial value problem like 1.2-2: y'=(x-2)^2, y(2)=1. Lecture on Euler's direction field ideas. Example on y'=(1-y)y in class. See Three Examples (pdf) Projected slide from page 1 of the document Direction fields (11 pages, pdf). Threading edge-to-edge solutions was based upon two rules: (1) Solution curves don't cross, and (2) Threaded solution curves must match tangents with nearby arrows of the direction field. See the direction field document above for explanations. Also stated in class was the Picard-Lindelof theorem, which is Theorem 1 in Edwards-Penney, found in this slide set: Peano and Picard Theory (3 pages, pdf). For problem 1.3-8, xerox at 200 percent the textbook page and paste the figure. Draw threaded curves on this figure according to the rules in the direction field document above.

Picard-Lindelof and Peano Existence Example, similar to 1.3-14 (1 page, pdf)

30 Aug, More examples of how to write reports, in lab. [from Hwanyong Lee] We discussed briefly the Format Suggestions for submitted work. For Sec 1.1, we discussed the definition of the differential equation and the difference between the ordinary differential equation and the partial differential equation. For Sec 1.2, we discussed how to find the solution of y'=f(x) and why we can find the solution explictly. we solved together problems #1, #6. For Sec 1.3, we discussed why we can't use the method used in the previous section to find the solution of y'=f(x,y) and we discussed the Peano theorem and the Picard Lindelof theorem and the difference between the two theorems. And we discussed together the problems #13, #14 and the difference between two problems.

[Geoffrey Hunter] We discussed the format requirements for assignments. Referenced the sample work on the web site and referred specific questions about format to MWF classes. I clarified some points of confusion regarding the time/location of the Maple labs and reminded the Wed class of the Maple lab tutorial notice sent by e-mail. I answered questions on 1.3-14 (Tues and Wed) and did 1.3-11 to reinforce the ideas (Wed). I also did a verbal comparison of 1.3-14 with 1.3-13 (Tues and Wed). Briefly discussed (with 1.3-14) how you can have existence but not necessarily uniqueness of solutions.

31 Aug: Collected in class, Page 26, 1.3: 14. The dailies on Page 41, 1.4: 6, 12 will be due Tuesday 5 Sep. Theory of separable equations started, section 1.4. Separation test: F(x)=f(x,y0)/f(x0,y0), G(y)=f(x0,y), then FG=f if and only if y'=f(x,y) is separable. Basic theory discussed. Venn diagram of first order equations of type quadrature, separable and linear. Tests for quadrature (f_y=0) and linear (f_y indep of y) types. Skipped solutions y=constant and how to find them using G(c)=0. Non-equilibrium solutions from y'/G(y)=F(x) and a quadrature step. Implicit and explicit solutions. References:
