Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Well the homogeneous equation is just the wave equation which is nice, for C a complex number we have: \[y_h = c e^{i 2 x}\] and I think from here there's some Fourier transform sorta stuff we can do, since our function is essentially just an odd function raised up by a constant, so we can express it in terms of sines.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0earlier i was hoping to shift down the graph by 1/2 units and find the coefficient \(b_n\) using usual fourier series integral as @Empty was suggesting this eulerfourier method looks neat, but is there an easy way to get real part out of \(f(t)\).. idk if it is even necessary, im just asking because im seeing for the first time...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0shifting the function down by 1/2 is decomposing it into the sum of an even and an odd function, it doesn't actually simplify the resultant fourier series

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it just separates it into the fourier transform of a constant and then an even periodic function, so the even and odd coefficients get separated but you have to recombine them anyways

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Yeah you can write the function f(t) using the \(sgn\) function which just returns 1 if positive, 1 if negative, and 0 if neither as: \[f(t) = \frac{1}{2} sgn( \sin( t \pi) ) + \frac{1}{2} \] Is this what you're asking for?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0hmm, consider the equation $$y''+4y=\delta(ts)$$which gives rise to $$(\omega^2+4)Y(\omega)=e^{i\omega s}\\Y(\omega)=\frac{e^{i\omega s}}{\omega^2+4}$$while $$\mathcal{F}\{e^{2t}\}=\frac4{\omega^2+4}\qquad\mathcal{F}\{f(ts)\}=e^{i\omega s}f(t)$$ so \(y(t)=\frac14 \exp(2ts)\) is the Green's function, so the solution to $$y''+4y=f(t)$$ is just $$y(t)=\frac14\int_{\infty}^\infty e^{2ts} f(t)\,ds$$

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oops, I meant \(y_s(t)=\frac14\exp(2ts)\) is the Green's function (response \(y(t)\) to an impulse at \(t=s\))

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oops, I meant $$\begin{align*}y(t)&=\int_{\infty}^\infty e^{2ts} f(s)\, ds\\&=\int_{\infty}^t e^{2(ts)}f(s)\, ds+\int_t^\infty e^{2(ts)}f(s)\,ds\\&=e^{2t}\int_{\infty}^te^{2s} f(s)\, ds+e^{2t}\int_t^\infty e^{2s}f(s)\, ds\end{align*}$$now to just figure out a nice way to do those integrals

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1**ignoring the complementary solution**, the Laplace Transform gives: \(\hat y (s^2 + 2^2)= \mathcal L\{f(t)\}\) where \(f(t) = f(t + 2)\), f(t) being the periodic repetition of \(f_1(t) = u_0(t)  u_1(t)\), period = 2 using the Rule numbers as listed in Pauls Online ...[ http://tutorial.math.lamar.edu/Classes/DE/Laplace_Table.aspx ] from ***Rule 34: \(\large \mathcal L \{ f_1(t) = \large \frac{\int_{0}^{2} e^{st}} {1  e^{2s}} = [\frac{1}{s}  \frac{e^{s}}{s}] . \frac{1}{1  e^{2s}}\) so \(\hat y(s) = \frac {1  e^{s}}{s(s^2 + 2^2)} . \frac{1}{1  e^{2s}}\) the bit at the end can be ignored as we are looking for another periodic function \(y_1(t)\) of period 2. \( y_1(t) = \mathcal L^{1} \{ \frac {1  e^{s}}{s(s^2 + 2^2)} \}\) \( \mathcal L^{1} \{ \frac {1 }{s(s^2 + 2^2)} \} = \mathcal L^{1} \{ \frac{G(s)}{s}\}\) ***Rule 32 \( g(t) = \frac{1}{2} \ sin 2t\) \(\int_{0}^{t} \frac{1}{2} sin \ 2 \nu \ d \nu \implies \frac{1}{4} (1  cos \ 2t)\) \( \mathcal L^{1} \{ \frac {  e^{s}}{s(s^2 + 2^2)} \} = \mathcal L^{1} \{ e^{s} F(s) \} = u_1(t)f(t1)\) ***Rule 27 where \( f(t) = \frac{1}{4} (1  cos \ 2t)\) so \( y_1(t) = \frac{1}{4} (1  cos \ 2t)  \frac{1}{4} u_1(t) (1  cos \ 2(t1)) \) i think.
