Wednesday-Friday: Direction fields. Peano and Picard. Section 1.3

Euler's directional field visualization.
 Tools for using Euler's idea, which reduces an initial value
   problem to infinitely many graphics.
 The Idea: Display the behavior of all solutions, without solving
   the differential equation.
 The rules:
   1. Solutions don't cross.
   2. Threaded solutions pass other solutions with tangent line slope
      nearly matching the nearby solutions.
 Discuss problem 1.3-8.
For problem 1.3-8, xerox at 200 percent the textbook exercise page, then
cut and paste the figure. Draw threaded curves on this figure
according to the rules in the direction field document above. To save
the xerox work, please print this prepared copy:

PNG: Picard iterates example. (145.6 K, png, 15 Jan 2015) Topics on Direction fields Threading edge-to-edge solutions is based upon two rules [explained in the manuscript]: 1. Solution curves don't cross, and 2. Threaded solution curves nearly match tangents of nearby direction field arrows. Picard and Peano Theorems The Picard-Lindelof theorem and the Peano theorem are found in the web references below. The theorems appear in section 1.3 of the textbook, without names. PEANO THEOREM [brief statement] y'=f(x,y), y(x0)=y0 has at least one solution provided f is continuous. PICARD-LINDELOF THEOREM [brief statement] y'=f(x,y), y(x0)=y0 has one and only one solution provided f is continuously differentiable. SOLUTION GEOMETRY The Peano and Picard theorems conclude existence of a curve y=y(x) AND ALSO a Box B with center (x0,y0). Curve y(x) crosses the box edge-to-edge, from left to right (it does not exit the top or bottom), passing through the center point (x0,y0).

Text: Background material functions and continuity (1.3-14). (4.2 K, txt, 07 Jan 2018) Remarks on Exercises 1.3 How to thread curves on a direction field: Exercise 1.3-8. Picard-Peano Example y'=3(y-1)^(2/3), y(0)=1, similar to 1.3-14, from Peano-Picard slide above. Exercise 1.3-14: Justifications in exercise 1.3-14 are made from background material in the calculus, taken from the link above "Background ... continuity". Summary of Topics Drill: Direction fields. Two Threading Rules. Picard and Peano Theorems. Question. We draw threaded solutions from some dot in the graphic. How do we choose the dots? What do they represent? Question. What does dy/dx=f(x,y), y(x0)=y0 have to do with threaded curves? True and false trig formulas: arctan(tan(theta))=theta [false], tan(arctan(x))=x [true]. Switches and Finite Blowup of Solutions Differential equations y'=f(x,y) in which f is defined piecewise with switches may have a unique solution. Differential equations with f smooth have a unique solution, but the solution may blow up in finite time. Here's two examples:
