```    Undetermined Coefficients
Which equations can be solved
Intro to the basic trial solution method
Laplace solution of y'' + y = 1+x
[use x''(t)+x(t) = 1+t, x(0)=x'(0)=0]
How to find the atoms in y_p(x).
How to find the atoms in y_h(x)
THEOREM. Solution y_h(x) is a linear combination of atoms.
THEOREM. Solution y_p(x) is a linear combination of atoms.
THEOREM. (superposition)  y = y_h + y_p
EXAMPLE. How to find a shortest expression for y_p(x) using
Laplace's method.
Details for x''(t)+x(t) = 1+t, to
obtain the trial solution x(t)=A+Bt
BASIC METHOD. Given a trial solution with undetermined coefficients,
find a system of equations for d1, d2, ... and solve it.
Report y_p as the trial solution with substituted
METHODS to FIND the SOLUTION.
Laplace solution of y''(t) + y(t) = f(t) when
f(t)=linear combination of atoms
We get L(y) = polynomial fraction. By partial fractions and
the backward table, L(y)=L(g(t)), where g(t)=linear combination
of atoms! This proves the general result:

THEORY. y = y_h + y_p, and each is a linear combination of atoms.

How to find the homogeneous solution y_h(x) from the characteristic equation.
How to determine the form of the shortest trial solution for y_p(x)
METHOD 1. Laplace theory. It works, but it is slow. Central to this
method is dividing L(f(t)) by the characteristic polynomial,
then writing this polynomial fraction as L(g(t)). The homogeneous
solution atoms are shrunk from g(t) to obtain the trial solution.
METHOD 2. A rule for finding y_p(x) from f(x) and the DE.
We get rid of Laplace theory's t-variable and use x.
Finding a trial solution with fewest symbols.
Rule I. Assume the right side f(x) of the differential equation is a
linear combination of atoms. Make a list of all distinct atoms that appear in
the derivatives f(x), f'(x), f''(x), ... . Multiply these k atoms by
undetermined coefficients d_1, ... , d_k, then add to define a trial solution y.

This rule FAILS if one or more of the k atoms is a solution of
the homogeneous differential equation.

Rule II. If Rule I FAILS, then break the k atoms into groups
with the same base atom. Cycle through the groups, replacing atoms
as follows. If the first atom in the group is a solution of the homogeneous
differential equation, then multiply all atoms in the group by factor x. Repeat
until the first atom is not a solution of the homogeneous differential equation.
Multiply the constructed k atoms by symbols d_1, ... , d_k and add to define trial solution y.

Explanation: Relation between the Rule I + II trial solution and
the book's table that uses the mystery factor x^s.
EXAMPLES.
y'' + y = 1 + x
y'' + y = cos(x)
y''' + y'' = 3x + 4 exp(-x)

THEOREM. Suppose a list of k atoms is generated from the
atoms in f(x), using Rule I. Then the shortest trial
solution has exactly k atoms.

EXAMPLE. How to find a shortest trial solution using
Rules I and II.

Details for x''(t)+x(t) = t^2 + cos(t),
to obtain the shortest trial solution
x(t)=d1+d2 t+d3 t^2+d4 t cos(t) + d5 t sin(t).
How to use dsolve() in maple to check the answer.
EXAMPLE. Suppose the DE has order n=4 and the homogeneous
equation has solution atoms cos(t), t cos(t), sin(t),
t sin(t). Assume f(t) = t^2 + cos(t). What is the
shortest trial solution?
EXAMPLE. Suppose the DE has order n=2 and the homogeneous
equation has solution atoms cos(t), sin(t). Assume
f(t) = t^2 + t cos(t).
What is the shortest trial solution?
EXAMPLE. Suppose the DE has order n=4 and the homogeneous
equation has solution atoms 1, t, cos(t), sin(t).
Assume
f(t) = t^2 + t cos(t).
What is the shortest trial solution?

```Undetermined coefficients
Examples continued from the previous lecture.
Shortest trial solution.
Two Rules to find the shortest trial solution.
1. Compute the atoms in f(x). The number k of atoms found
is the number needed in the shortest trial solution.
2. Correct groups with the same base atom, by
multiplication by x until the group contains no atom
which is a solution of the homogeneous problem
[eliminate homogeneous DE conflicts].
The x^s mystery factor in the book's table. The number s is the
multiplicity of the root in the homogenous DE characteristic
equation, which constructed the base atom of the group.

```Wine Glass Experiment
The lab table setup
Speaker.
Amplifier with volume knob.
Wine glass.
x(t)=deflection from equilibrium of the radial component of the
glass rim, represented in polar coordinates, orthogonal to
the speaker front.
mx'' + cx' + kx = F_0 cos(omega t)  The model of the wine glass
m,c,k are properties of the glass sample itself
omega = frequency generator knob adjustment
Theory of Practical Resonance
The equation is
mx''+cx'+kx=F_0 cos(omega t)
THEOREM. The limit of x_h(t) is zero at t=infinity
THEOREM. x_p(t) = C(omega) cos(omega t - phi)
C(omega) = F_0/Z, Z^2 = A^2+B^2, A and B are the
undetermined coefficient answers for trial solution
x(t) = A cos(omega t) + B sin(omega t).
THEOREM. The output x(t) = x_h(t) + x_p(t) is graphically
just x_p(t) = C(omega) cos(omega t - phi) for large t.
Therefore, x_p(t) is the OBSERVABLE output.
THEOREM. The amplitude C(omega) is maximized over all possible
input frequencies omega>0 by the single choice
omega = sqrt(k/m - c^2/(2m^2)).
DEFINITION. The practical resonance frequency is the number omega
defined by the above square root expression.

All are 2x2 or 3x3 or nxn system applications that can be solved by Laplace methods.
Systems of two differential equations
Solving a system from Chapter 1 methods
The Laplace resolvent method for systems.
Cramer's Rule,
matrix inversion methods.
EXAMPLE: Solving a 2x2 dynamical system using Laplace's resolvent method.
Study of u'=Au, u(0)=vector([1,2]), A=matrix([[2,1],[0,3]]).
EXAMPLE: Problem 10.2-16,
This problem is a 3x3 system for x(t), y(t), z(t) solved
by Laplace theory methods. The resolvent formula
(sI - A) L(u(t)) = u(0)
with u(t) the fixed 3-vector with components x(t), y(t), z(t),
amounts to a shortcut to obtain the equations for L(x(t)),
L(y(t)), L(z(t)). After the shortcut is applied, in which
Cramer's Rule is the method of choice, to find the formulas,
there is no further shortcut: we have to find x(t), for example,
by partial fractions and the backward table, followed by Lerch's
theorem.

Chapter 1+5 Shortcut Method [appears in Edwards-Penney]
Solve w'+p(t)w=0 as w = constant / integrating factor.
Then  y(t) = 2 exp(3t)
Stuff y(t) into the first DE to get the linear DE
x' - 2x = 6 exp(3t)
Superposition: x(t)=x_h(t)+x_p(t),
x_h(t)=c exp(2t),
x_p(t) = d1 exp(t) = 2 exp(3t) by undetermined coeff.
Then x(t)= - exp(2t) + 2 exp(3t).
