Chapter day 4 Differential equations

The number of rabbits in a population increases at a rate that is proportional to the number of rabbits present (at least for awhile.) So does any population of living creatures. Other things that increase or decrease at a rate proportional to the amount present include radioactive material and money in an interest-bearing account. If the rate of change is proportional to the amount present, the change can be modeled by: Recall from AP Calculus

Rate of change is proportional to the amount present. Divide both sides by y. Integrate both sides.

Exponentiate both sides. When multiplying like bases, add exponents. So added exponents can be written as multiplication.

Exponentiate both sides. When multiplying like bases, add exponents. So added exponents can be written as multiplication. Since is a constant, let.

What if we have a series of differential equations? dy 1 = ky 1 dt dy 2 = ky 2 dt dy 3 = ky 3 dt We could solve of these individually y 1 =c 1 e kt y 2 =c 2 e kt y 3 =c 3 e kt Provided that we have initial conditions for each of these to solve for the constants

If we define x x 1 (t) x (t) = x 2 (t) x n (t) [ ] … This yields the equation x (t)= Ax Which is easy to solve in the case of a diagonal matrix. x 1 x 2 x 3 [ ] = 300 0-20 004 [ ] x1x2x3x1x2x3 We can solve each of these as a separate differential equation x 1 = 3x 1, x 2 = -2x 2, x 3 = 4x 3 x 1 (t) = b 1 e 3t, x 2 (t) = b 2 e -2t, x 3 (t) = b 3 e 4t, This is the general solution. We can solve for the constants if given an initial condition.

First order homogeneous linear system of differential equations x 1 (t) = a 11 x 1 (t) + a 12 x 2 (t) + … a 1n x n (t) x 2 (t) = a 21 x 1 (t) + a 22 x 2 (t) + … a 2n x n (t) x n (t) = a n1 x 1 (t) + a n2 x 2 (t) + … a nn x n (t) … We could write this in matrix form as: x 1 (t) a 11 a 12 …. a 12 x(t) = x 2 (t) A = a 21 a 22 … a 2n x n (t) a n1 a n2 …a nm [ ] … …

What if our system is not diagonal? du 1 = -u 1 +2 u 2 dt du 2 = u 1 – 2u 2 dt A = -1 2 1 -2 [ ] The system at the left can be written as du/dt = Au with a as How can we solve this system? Initial condition u(0) = 1010 [ ]

Solve the differential equations A = -1 2 1 -2 [ ] The system at the left can be written as du/dt = Au with a as What are the eigenvalues from inspection? Hint: A is singular The trace is -3 Start by computing the eigenvalues and eigenvectors

Solve the differential equations Step 1 find the eigenvalues and eigenvectors det -1-λ 2 1 -2-λ [ ] We can a solve via finding the determinant of A - λI Calculate the eigenvector associated with λ = 0,-3 By inspection: the matrix is singular therefore 0 is an eigenvalue the trace is -3 therefore the other eigenvalue is -3 A = -1 2 1 -2 [ ] For λ = 0 find a basis for the kernel of A 2121 [ ] For λ= -3 find a basis for the kernel of A+3I A+ 3I = 2 2 1 1 [ ] 1 [ ]

Solve the differential equations A = -1 2 1 -2 [ ] The system at the left can be written as du/dt = Au with a as The form that we are expecting for the answer is y = c 1 e λ t x 1 + c 2 e λ t x 2 Note: the solutions of the equations are going to be e raised to a power. 12 The eigenvalues are already telling us about the form of the solutions A negative eigenvalue will mean that that portion goes to zero as x goes to infinity. An eigenvalue of zero will mean that we will have an e 0 which will be a constant. We will call this type of system a steady state.

Solve the differential equations A = -1 2 1 -2 [ ] Solve by plugging in eigenvalues into expected equation and for λ 1 and λ 2. and the corresponding eigenvectors in x 1 and x 2 We find c 1 and c 2 by using the initial condition y = c 1 e 0t 2 + c 2 e -3t 1 1 -1 [ ] Initial condition u(0) = [] 1010 Plugging in zero for t and the initial conditions yields: 1 = c 1 2 + c 2 1 0 1 -1 [ ] Recall: c 1 = 1/3 c 2 = 1/3

Solve the differential equations The general solution is y = 1/3 2 + 1/3 e -3t 1 1 -1 [ ] We are interested in hat happens as time goes to infinity Recall our initial condition was 1 all of our quantity was in u 1 0 Then as time progressed there was flow from u 1 to u 2. As time approaches infinity we end with the steady state 2/3 1/3 [ ]

The solution to y = ky is y = y 0 e kt The solution to x = Au is u = c 0 e At

Applications of Differential Equations Differential Equations are the language in which the laws of nature are expressed. Understanding properties of solutions of differential equations is fundamental to much of contemporary science and engineering. Ordinary differential equations (ODE's) deal with functions of one variable, which can often be thought of as time - MIT

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Differential _equation Many fundamental laws of physics and chemistry can be formulated as differential equations. In biology and economics, differential equations are used to model the behavior of complex systems. The mathematical theory of differential equations first developed together with the sciences where the equations had originated and where the results found application. However, diverse problems, sometimes originating in quite distinct scientific fields, may give rise to identical differential equations. Whenever this happens, mathematical theory behind the equations can be viewed as a unifying principle behind diverse phenomena. As an example, consider propagation of light and sound in the atmosphere, and of waves on the surface of a pond. All of them may be described by the same second-order partial differential equation, the wave equation, which allows us to think of light and sound as forms of waves, much like familiar waves in the water. Conduction of heat, the theory of which was developed by Joseph Fourier, is governed by another second-order partial differential equation, the heat equation. It turned out that many diffusion processes, while seemingly different, are described by the same equation; the Black–Scholes equation in finance is, for instance, related to the heat equation.physicschemistrybiologyeconomicsmodelpartial differential equationwave equation Joseph Fourierheat equation diffusionBlack–Scholes
