Chem Math 252 Chapter 6 Differential Equations

2
**Differential Equations**

Many problems in physical chemistry (eg. kinetics, dynamics, theoretical chemistry) require solution to a differential equation Many can not be solved analytically Deal only with first order ODE Higher order equations can be reduced to a system of 1st order DE

3
**Differential Equations**

Simplest form Can integrate analytically or numerically (using techniques of Chapter 4)

4
**Differential Equations**

General case Many simpler problems can be solved analytically Many involve ex However, in chemistry (physics & engineering) many problems have to be solved numerically (or approximately)

5
**Picard Method Can not integrate exactly because integrand involves y**

Approximate iteratively by using approximations for y Continue to iterate until a desire level of accuracy is obtained in y Often gives a power series solution

6
**Picard Method – Example**

Continue to iterate until a desire level of accuracy is obtained in y

7
**Picard Method – Example 2**

8
**Euler Method Assume linear between 2 consecutive points**

Between initial point and 1st (calculated) point User selects Dx Need to be careful - too big or too small can cause problems

9
Euler Method – Example

10
**Taylor Method Based on Taylor expansion**

Euler method is Taylor method of order 1 Use chain rule

11
**Taylor Method – Example**

12
**Improved Euler (Heun’s) Method**

Euler Method Use constant derivative between points i & i+1 calculated at xi Better to use average derivative across the interval yi+1 is not known Predict – Correct (can repeat)

13
**Improved Euler Method – Example**

14
**Modified Euler Method Modified Euler Method**

Use derivative halfway between points i & i+1

15
**Modified Euler Method – Example**

16
Runge-Kutta Methods Improved and Modified Euler Methods are special cases 2nd order Runge-Kutta 4th order Runge-Kutta Runge Kutta Runge-Kutta-Gill
