Theorem. The homogeneous solution for ay''+by'+cy=0 with a,b,c>0 constants has limit zero at x=infinity. This implies that ay''+by'+cy=f(x) has a unique T-periodic solution, if f(x+T)=f(x) for all x [f is T-periodic].
Theorem. The solution for ay''+cy=0 with a,c>0 constants is harmonic, which implies a fixed amplitude periodic oscillation of frequency sqrt(c/a).

Lecture: Fourier's Model. Intro to eigenanalysis, ch6. Examples and motivation. Fourier's model. History. J.B.Fourier's 1822 treatise on the theory of heat. The rod example.
Physical Rod: a welding rod of unit length, insulated on the lateral surface and
              ice packed on the ends. 
  Define f(x)=thermometer reading at loc=x along the rod at t=0.
  Define u(x,t)=thermometer reading at loc=x and time=t>0.

Problem: Find u(x,t).

Fourier's solution: 
  f(x) = 17 sin (pi x) + 29 sin(5 pi x)
       = 17 v1 + 29 v2

  Packages v1, v2 are vectors in a vector space V of functions on [0,1].
  Fourier computes u(x,t) by re-scaling v1, v2 with numbers Lambda_1,
  Lambda_2 that depend on t. This idea is called Fourier's Model.

  u(x,t) = 17 ( exp(-pi^2 t) sin(pi x)) + 29 ( exp(-25 pi^2 t) sin (5 pi x))
         = 17 (Lambda_1 v1) + 29 (Lambda_2 v2)

THEOREM. The homgeneous solution has limit zero at infinity for c>0.
THEOREM. There is a unique periodic solution obtained by undetermined coefficients when c>0 and the period is 2 PI / omega. This solution is the observable or steady state. All solutions of the homogeneous equation are transient.
In the Laplace solution, the output L(x) equals the transfer function time the Laplace of the input F0 cos(omega t). It is possible to find the steady state solution by dropping all negative exponential terms in the Laplace solution.

The equation y''+10y'=0 has characteristic equation r^2+10r=0 with roots r=0, r=-10. Then Euler's theorem says exp(0x) and exp(-10x) are solutions. By the dimension theory, 1, exp(-10x) are a basis for the solution space of the differnetial equation and then the general soution is y = c1 (1) + c2 (exp(-10x)).
