Existence and uniqueness theorem

The existence and uniqueness theorem for ordinary differential equations (ODE) says that the solution of a 1st order ODE with given initial value exists and is unique. It is discussed briefly on p. 528 of the text.<<< this just talks about the ability for a differential eqn. to have practical importance in predicting future valu

(See attached file for full problem description) --- Find the volume of the solid generated when the region R bounded by the given curves is revolved about the indicated axis. Do this by performing the following steps A sketch the region R B show a typical slice properly labeled C write a formula for the approximate vo

Newtons Method Using Mathematica 5

If its possible to answer these three questions using mathematica 5 if matlab looks similar, or the commands are similar then i guess matlab is fine... if its at all possible for mathetmatica it would be much appreciated Using Newtons Method 1. Plot f(x) = a on the interval - 3 &#8804; x &#8804; 3. a) Use Newton

Initial Conditions, Sources, Sinks, Nodes and Bifurcation

Our problem is to determine which values of D result in extinction and which result in survival. This can be done by studying equation (*), treating D as a bifurcation parameter see Section 2.6 a. Using technology to study solutions to an equation (*) for parameter values of 08, 0.7, 0,4, and 0.5. For each choice of D, use se

Differential Equations of Exponential Functions

Differential Equation (IX): Formation of Differential Equations by Elimination Eliminate the arbitrary constants from the equation: y = Ae^x + Be^2x + Ce^3x. Make sure to show all of the steps which are involved.

Differential Equation - Initial Value Problem

11. Consider an electric circuit like that in Example 5 of Section 8.6. Assume the electromotive force is an alternating current generator which produces a voltage V(t) = E sinwt , where E and w are positive constants (w is the Greek letter omega). EXAMPLE 5. Electric Circuits. Figure 8.2(a), page 318, shows an electric circu

Population Dynamics

I think the solution is probably a simple modification to the predation equations: dN/dt = rN - cNP is the growth rate for the prey population and dP/dt = -dp + gcNP is the growth rate for predator population, where: N= prey density P = predator density d= death rate g = conversion efficiency of prey to predators r = p

Sand falls from an overhead hopper to form a right circular cone. If the cone formed has an angle theta find the rate of change of volume with respect to height? If the height is changing at 2cms per minute, what volume of sand is falling from the hopper when the height of the cone is 3 meters? (The volume of a cone is (1/3)pir2h where h is the height and r is the radius.)

Derivatives and Application of the Derivative

F(t) = 10,000 / 10 + 50e ^-0.5t HOW do I obtain the derivative? What is the "e" portion of the problem? I know the derivative = 250,000e^-0.5t/ (10+50e ^-0.5t)^2 Please describe in detail the steps taken to arrive at this answer. For example, Why is the top of the equation 250,000e^-0.5t? Why is the bottom (10+50e^-0

Consider the heat equation delta(u)/delta(t) = (delta^2)(u)/delta(x^2) Show that if u(c, t) = (t^alpha)psi(E) where E = x/sqrt(t) and alpha is a constant, then psi(E) satisfies the ordinary differential equation alpha(psi) = 1/2 E(psi) = psi, where ' = d/dE is independent of t only if alpha = - 1/2. Further, show th
