Dr. Neil Balmforth Midterm: Thursday, Feb 15th. Ass 1 (with solution) Ass 2 (with solution) Sample midterm Additional relevant problems from Haberman (4th edition): * Separation of variables and Fourier series - 2.5.3, 2.5.9, 3.4.12, 4.4.3(b) * Halfway house (requiring Sturm-Louiville theory, but trig functions) - Worked example of section 5.7 upto eq (5.7.11), Physical examples of section 5.8 * Separation of variables and Bessel functions - 7.7.1 (assume r is less than a), 7.7.3 (the frequencies of vibration are the possible values of w in the cos(wt) and sin(wt) functions of the separation-of-variables general solution), 7.8.2(d), 7.9.1(b), 9.7.4(a) * Separation of variables and Legendre functions - final example in section 7.10, problem 7.10.2 Actual midterm (with solution) Ass 3 - due Tuesday, March 6 |
