2250 Lecture Record Week 15 F2009

Last Modified: December 14, 2009, 09:18 MST.    Today: October 23, 2017, 18:09 MDT.

Week 15, Dec 7-11: Sections 9.1,9.2,9.3,9.4. Final Exam Review.

07 Dec: Intro to stability theory for autonomous systems. Section 9.1

Topics
  Equilibria.
  Stability.
  Instability.
  Asymptotic stability.
  Classification of equilibria for u'=Au when
    det(A) is not zero, for the 2x2 case.

Spiral, saddle, center, node.
  Linearization theory.
  Jacobian.

Detecting stability:
   Re(lambda)<0 ==> asym. stability.
   Stability at t=-infinity classifies Unstable solutions.

Nonlinear stability theory
  When the linearized classification and stability transfers to
  the nonlinear system.

08 Dec: Stability. Almost Linear systems. Phase Diagram. Section 9.2

  More on stability theory.
  Linear and almost linear systems,
  Jacobian,
  stability of linear systems,
  stability of almost linear [nonlinear] systems,
  phase diagrams,
  classification of nonlinear systems.

Final exam review started.
   Cover today ch8 and some of ch10.
   Review packet distributed on the web.

Final exam details
   Less contact with ch3, ch4, ch6 due their appearance on
   exams 1,2,3.
   Since F2008, there are extra chapters 8,9 on the final.
   A good sample is the S2009 final exam.
   Chapters 5,6,7,10 will undergo changes and spins. For ch10, more
   contact with the second shifting theorem and the Dirac Delta. For
   ch7-ch8, there are additional methods for solving DE, especially
   Cayley-Hamilton-Ziebur, matrix exp(At) and the Laplace resolvent
   for first and second order systems. For ch5, deeper problems on
   variation of parameters and undetermined coefficients, resonance,
   and beats.

09 Dec: Nonlinear Stability. Classification. Predator-Prey. Section 9.3

Nonlinear stability
   phase diagrams,
   classification.
   Predator-Prey systems. How to tell which is the predator and which is
     the prey.
   Calculations for equilibrium points,
   linearization,
   classification of equilibria,
   impact on the phase diagram.
   Using DEtools and DEplot in maple to make phase diagrams.
   Exercises 9.1, 9.2.
