Week 2, Jan 18 to 22: Sections 1.4, 1.5, 2.1, 2.2.

19 Jan: Theory of Linear First Order Differential Equations. Section 1.5.

Topics delayed from Week 1.
  Discussion of answer checks
     implicit solution ln|y|=2x+c for y'=2y
     explicit solution y = C exp(2x) for y'=2y
  Troubles with explicit solutions of y'= 3 sqrt(xy) [1.4-6].
  Key Examples

  Influence of an initial condition to extract just one solution
    formula from the list.
  Examples for Midterm 1 problem 2:

  Example 1: Show that y'=x+y is not separable using TEST I or II
    (partial derivative tests).
  Example 2: Find a factorization f=F(x)G(y) for y'=f(x,y), given
       (1) f(x,y)=2xy+4y+3x+6 [ans: F=x+2, G=2y+3].
       (2) f(x,y)=(1-x^2+y^2-x^2y^2)/x^2 [ans: F=(1-x^2)/x^2, G=1+y^2].
Review Topics
  Drill: Direction fields.
    Two Threading Rules.
    Picard and Peano Theorems.
    We draw threaded solutions from some dot in the graphic. How
      do we choose the dots? What do they represent?
    What does dy/dx=f(x,y), y(x0)=y0 have to do with threaded
      curves?
  Drill: Quadrature
    integral of du/(1+u^2), 2u du/(1+u^2).
    True and false trig formulas:
      arctan(tan(theta))=theta  [false],

Review and Drill
  More about problem 1.5-34
    The expected model is
      x'=1/4-x/16,
      x(0)=20,
    using units of millions of cubic feet.
  The answer is x(t)=4+16 exp(-t/16).
  Model Derivation
    Law:  x'=input rate - output rate.
    Definition:  concentration == amt/volume.
    Use of percentages
       0.25% concentration means 0.25/100 concentration
