Report 2[edit | edit source]

Problem 1[edit | edit source]

Problem Statement[edit | edit source]

Show the equivalence between the two statements that define the linearity of differential operators.

Statement (1):
The definition of a linear operator, , is



for any two constants and , and for any two functions and

Statement (2):
The operator is linear iff


for any constant and for any function ,

and


for any two functions and .

Solution[edit | edit source]

We saw on piazza how to prove statement (1) from statement (2). To prove statement (2) from statement (1) we choose clever values for the constants and and for the functions and .

Proof for the Scaling Property[edit | edit source]

Since and can be any constant, and and can be any function, let us set



and



Then (1) becomes





Now let us say 2c is equal to some constant . The above equation becomes



which is the scaling property of a linear operator found in statement (2).

Proof for the Addition Property[edit | edit source]

Since and can be any constant, let us set



Then (1) becomes



which is the addition property of a linear operator found in statement (2).

Problem 2[edit | edit source]

Problem Statement[edit | edit source]

Build on my note in the same piazza post on differential operators on the notation
for general differential operators, and the notation
as defined in Eq.(1) in K 2011, sec.2.3, to explain the similarities and differences between these two notations.

Solution[edit | edit source]

The similarity with both and is that they look like they're both upper case D's. Both of these D's also symbolized the differential operator.
The difference between both of these D's is that
is a generalized differential operator, which can be seen as
and refers to the first differential operator:

Problem 5[edit | edit source]

R 2.5 K 2011, sec 2.2, p. 59, pb.5, with initial conditions

Problem Statement[edit | edit source]

Find the general solution to the ODE
With the initial values y(0) = 1 and y'(0) = .5

Solution[edit | edit source]


This is a linear, first order ODE with constant coefficients.

To find the general solution to this ODE set

so that and

Substituting in y to the ODE and factoring out we get:


Using the quadratic formula to solve for r we get

where and

Solving to get

Since we have a repeated root, we need to find v(x) so that y2(x) = v(x)y1(x)

Taking the first and second derivative of y2(x) we get:




solving for so

So y2(x) = x y1(x)


We get the general solution

Now with the initial values y(0) = 1 and y'(0) = .5

Problem 6[edit | edit source]

Problem Statement[edit | edit source]

Discuss the similarities and differences between Coulomb friction / damping (piazza post) with the damper used in the SDOF spring-mass-damper system with 2 ends fixed. 2.6.jpg

Solution[edit | edit source]

Similarities[edit | edit source]

With both ends fixed for SDOF system, we can say that (1)
In the theory of Coulomb friction/damping, the friction changes the direction of the oscillating object by "damping" the force of motion.

In the case of the SDOF system, the damper fixed to one of the ends is friction force shown in the theory.

Differences[edit | edit source]

The equation of motion for the SDOF system with two fixed ends is

The equation of motion for a typical coulomb damping system is

or

As seen above, the typical system involves a vague force to change the direction of an oscillating object while the SDOF system has a specific damper as function of .
