Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3for\[y_c=c_1y_1+c_2y_2\]the Wronskian is\[W(y_1,y_2)=\left\begin{matrix}y_1&y_2\\y_1'&y_2'\end{matrix}\right\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1does it equal\[ e^{x}\]? \[e^{x}(e^{x}(x1))+xe^{x}e^{x}=e^{x}\] \[{x}(e^{x}(x1))+xe^{x}=1\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3no, why did you set it equal to e^x, we can't set it equal to anything yet...

MathSofiya

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so how should I simplify it then?

TuringTest

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3\[e^{x}(e^{x}(x1))+xe^{x}e^{x}=e^{x}(e^{x}(1x))+xe^{x}e^{x}\]now try again while I try to eat ;)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Let's try that again \[e^{x}(e^{x}(x1))+xe^{x}e^{x}=e^{x}(e^{x}(1x))+xe^{x}e^{x}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3do you know the formula for the particular solution for variation of parameters?

MathSofiya

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1something like that?

TuringTest

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3almost unidentifiable to me in that form, but correct I'm sure I have the more direct formula memorized http://tutorial.math.lamar.edu/Classes/DE/VariationofParameters.aspx (the green box with the formula that says "variation of parameters)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1is the first one a y''? \[y''+q(t)y'+r(t)y=g(t)\]

TuringTest

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3yeah, it looks screwy I know

MathSofiya

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1do we know what q(t) and r(t) are? are they the coefficients of y' and y? Probably not it looks like

TuringTest
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3yes and in this case they are the coefficients, which in this case are constants the formula is just pointing out that they may not be

MathSofiya

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1oh I see, soo... \[y''+q(t)y'+r(t)y=g(t)\] \[y''2y'+y=e^{2x}\] so now I integrate

TuringTest
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3right, using the formula... r(t) and r(t) don't even come into the formula for the particular solution in variation of parameters

TuringTest

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3q(t) and r(t)... they determine the complimentary only, which as you can see *is* part of the formula for the particular

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3oh wait, wait, the denominator in each integrand is the wronskian, which we found to be e^(2x) I think you are confusing notation with the parentheses

MathSofiya

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Oh lol so the denominator is just e^{2x}

TuringTest

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3notice that makes our integrals quite tolerable :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[Y_p(t)=e^{x}\int\frac{xe^{x}e^{2x}}{e^{2x}}dx+xe^{x}\int\frac{e^{x}e^{2x}}{e^{2x}}dx\] That's a lot easier to integrate

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1oh I see \[c_1e^{x}+c_2xe^{x}\frac{e^{2x}}{9}(3x1)+\frac x3e^{3x}\]

TuringTest

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3yep, and of course if this is an IVP we now proceed to find c1 and c2 otherwise we're done having found the general solution

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Looking back over this, I don't understand how you guys got a negative double root to the characteristic equation. I got m_1 = m_2 = +1. Plugging into the normal formula for repeated roots, getting e^x and xe^x, not e^x. Am I missing something? @ganeshie8

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1@Mendicant_Bias For the homogeneous solution? Yes the characteristic equation appears to be giving +1 as a repeated root, as you indicated
