MAT2705 20F homework and daily class log

Jump to current date! [where @ is located]

Daily lectures and your homework will appear here each day as it is assigned, including some PDF and/or Maple problem solution files or PDF notes, with occasional links to some MAPLE worksheets when helpful to illustrate some points where technology can be useful. [There are 56 class days in the semester, 4 each normal week, numbered consecutively below and  labeled by the (first initial of the) day of the week. Friday will usually be the quiz day. Monday quiz makeup day.]

It is your responsibility to check homework here since not all homework exercises are online. (Put a favorite in your browser to the class homepage.) You are responsible for any hyperlinked material here as well as requesting any handouts or returned tests or quizzes from classes you missed. Homework is understood to be done by the  next class meeting (unless that class is a test, in which case the homework is due the following class meeting), but the online deadline will be stated as midnight of the due day so that you have time in class or after to ask questions that you did not submit via the Ask the Instructor online tool. You may correct submitted homeworailyk after the deadline without having to request an extension.
[[Homework problems surrounded by double square brackets [[...]] are not in the online homework system but are important to do.]]

quiz, test BlackBoard access/submission

  1. M:  (August 17)
    Lecture Notes 1.1a: Differential Equations: how to state them and "check" a solution;
    summary handout: odecheck.pdf

    New to Maple 3 minute video

    1) Log on to My Nova, choose the Class Schedule with Photos, view fellow students.
    Go to BlackBoard and look at the class portal and Grade book for our course: you will find all your Quiz, Test and Maple grades here during the semester once there is something to post. Everything we do except for quizzes, tests and grades will take place through our course website.
    3) Download Maple 2020 for Windows or Mac if you haven't already done so and install it on your laptop when you get a chance (it takes about 15 minutes). If you have any trouble, email me with an explanation of the errors.
    You are expected to be able to use Maple on your laptop when needed. We will develop the experience as we go. No previous experience is assumed.
    4) Enter the e-text MyLab Math portal if you have not already done so!
        registration codes: 004: jantzen48548, 005: jantzen35255 [click codes for detailed instructions]

    5) Homework Problems: 1.1: 3, 5, 13, 33 online.
    [memorize!: "A is proportional to B" means "A = k B" where k is some constant, independent of A and B]
    (short list so you can check out our class website and read about the course rules, advice, bob FAQ, etc, respond with your email).
    It is important that you read the section in the book from which homework problems have been selected before attempting them.
    Optional: get acquainted with Maple clickable calculus DE entry and "odetest" for problems 3,5,13 [even 33!]

    Proportionality statements must be converted to equalities with a constant of proportionality introduced:
    y is proportional to xy x  means y = k x . [y is a multiple of x]
    is inversely proportional to xy ∝ 1/x  means y = k/x .
    is inversely proportional to the square of xy ∝ 1/x2  means y = k/x2

    6) By the end of the week, reply to my welcome e-mail from your OFFICIAL Villanova e-mail account (which identifies you with your full name), telling about your last math courses, your comfort level with graphing calculators and computers and math itself, [for sophomores only] how much experience you have with Maple (and Mathcad if appropriate) so far, why you chose your major, etc, anything you want to let me know about yourself that will give me more of an idea about you as a person. [For example, I like to do humorous sketching. and cooking.] Tell me what your previous math course was named (if at VU: Mat1500 = Calc 1, Mat1505 = Calc 2, Mat2500 = Calc3).
    [In ALL email to me, include the string "mat2705" somewhere in the subject heading if you want me to read it quickly. I filter my email.]

    extra questions interesting to answer: what is the final concentration? How does it compare to the initial concentration and the incoming concentration?

    Note: we are skipping 1.6: exact DE etc. These are less important, and Maple can solve these when needed anyway. A similar integrating factor technique works for exact equations but where the independent and dependent variables are on an equal footing.

  11. W: 1.R (review): be prepared in class to classify the odd problems 1-35 as: separable, linear in y (as unknown), linear in x (as unknown), some combination of these three, or NOTA (none of the above, i.e., from skipped section 1.6), for example dy/dx = y/x is all three and can be solved in three different ways; don't solve them but (review problems are not online):
    [[ solve 25 [it can be done in two ways by expanding out the square on the RHS before integrating with integration constant C or by using a u-substitution as the book did with integration constant K; express K in terms of C as given in the book supplied answers by combining the two terms in the K solution [identity for expanding out (x+1)3 !] and then comparing with the C solution];

    word of the day (semester really): can you say "homogeneous"? [online handout only]
    Get used to this word, it will be used the rest of the semester. It refers to any linear equation not containing any terms which do not have either the unknowns or any of their derivatives present, i.e., if in standard form with all the terms involving only the unknowns on the left hand side of the linear equation, the right hand side is ZERO. [nonhomogeneous means the RHS is nonzero]

  27. F:  Quiz 6 on solving linear systems and linear independence;
    handout on nonstandard coordinates on R2 and R3 [goal: understand the jargon and how things work];
    0) bob tries to draw this out on the white board, explaining how it works.
    Then in the breakout rooms, you do the following each separately, but discussing and critiquing each other's work (hold it up to the screen, enlarged for the person trying to share their work in speaker view!).
    1) Using the completed first page coordinate handout made for that new basis {[2,1],[1,3]} of the plane just explained by bob, graphically find the new coordinates of the point [4,7] reading off the grid. Then find the old coordinates for the point whose new coordinates are  [2,2]. Your graphical read outs can be confirmed by the corresponding matrix multiplications if there is disagreement.
    2) Next practice on the blank grid [ .mw, .pdf] you printed out in advance with b1= <3,-1>,  b2= <2,2> . Draw these arrows at the origin, and then replicate then tip to tail along the new coordinate axes, marking off the new tickmarks and reproduce the grid corresponding to  -2..2 in the new coordinate tickmarks. What are the new coords of the point (position vector!)  <-2,6>? What point (position vector!) has new coords <2,-1>?] .
    3) Next we change to new basis vectors and using the above handout as a guide, complete the blank worksheet printed out in advance, similarly drawing its new basis vectors and axes with tickmarks and the grid, etc. Use a ruler and sharp pencil,to make a new -2..2,-2..2 coordinate grid associated with the new basis vectors {[1,1],[-2,1]} and graphically represent the point [x1,x2] = [-5,1] and find its new coordinates  [y1,y2] using the grid. Similarly read off the old coordinates [x1,x2] of the point whose new coordinates are [y1,y2] = [-2,-1]. Confirm that these agree with the corresponding matrix calculations.

    a) evaluate numerically the frequency ω, the period T, the characteristic time τ, the ratio 5 τ /T, the initial amplitude and the phase shift in radians, degrees and cycles. Identify the two envelope functions. Make a plot in the natural decay window of the function and its envelope.
    b) Evaluate the initial data or state vector for this function. What are the complex roots which give rise to this solution of a linear homogeneous DE (r = -1/τ  plus/minus i ω ) and therefore what is the quadratic characteristic equation and the corresponding DE for which this is a solution?]]

    5.5: 1, 3, 4, 8, 10, 13, 17, 33, 37 (pdf) [not easy for me either!]
    [not many of the book RHS driving functions are physically interesting here;
    we will not cover "variation of parameters"; the book presentation of the method of undetermined coefficients is a recipe with little justification (educated guess), instead the handout shows exactly how and why one gets the particular solutions up to these coefficients].

  37. T: Lecture Notes 5.6a: Driven damped harmonic oscillators;
    handout on damped harmonic oscillator driven by sinusoidal driving function [1 sheet printable version];
    [in class pdf: resonance calculation side by side], maple resonance plots: general, specific];

    handout on beating and resonance [mw, with optional beating plot problem];
    Online HW catchup day. Don't let these go unfinished. Get bob's help.
    optional 5.6: 1 [worksheet rewrites this as a product of sines using the cosine difference formula:
    cos(A) - cos(B) = {-2 sin((A-B)/2)} sin((A+B)/2), the expression in {} is the sinusoidal amplitude envelope function [and its period is T = 2(2 π)/(A-B)], look at the plot of x and +/- this amplitude function (the envelope) together in this beating example worksheet, then do as explained here, repeat for the HW problem described in this link as well as at the end of this same beating example worksheet (be sure to plot one full period of the envelope function to see exactly 2 beats],

    We will watch the 4 minute Google linked video of resonance NOT! (but see the engineering explanation linked PDF for the detailed explanation):
    [Tacoma Narrows Bridge collapse (resonance NOT!): Wikipedia; Google (You-Tube video)];
    a real resonance bridge problem occurred more recently: the Millenium Bridge resonance (5 minutes).

    We will watch a 9 minute YouTube video massdampers.htm that shows a physical problem using the mathematics we will work up to by the end
    of the semester, two coupled damped oscillators, which is a simple model for realistic damping of the swaying motion of tall skyscrapers.

    Read 5.6.23 (earthquake!): consistent units: sec, ft, lbs; first evaluate Hookes' law constant, then find x''+10 x =  A0 ω2 sin(ω t), convert frequency to ω = 2 π /2.25 radians/s, set A0  (=3in) = 1/4 ft. Solve. Find amplitude of response oscillation in inches.  [soln]

    Ignore this: EE/Physics majors if you are interested: RLC circuit application (floating point numbers!): RLC circuits [maple plots]

  39. F: Quiz 8 like 18F:Quiz 8;
    Lecture Notes 6.1a: Eigenvectors and eigenvalues;
    Transition back to linear algebra:
    [In class watch bob use the Maple worksheet to graphically determine the eigenvectors and eigenvalues of three 2x2 matrices. Recall old handout coupled system of DEQs and its directionfield [motivation: direction fields for Maple help visualize eigendirections of a 2x2 matrix]
    watch the MIT Eigenvector 4 minute video [requires IE browser because of Flash; there are 6 frames which then repeat, so stop when you see it beginning again---from their LinAlg course]; see the 6 possibilities of the video in this Maple worksheet DEPlot directionfield phaseplot template;
    then play a computer game with that Maple worksheet lining up the vectors [red is x, blue is A x, click on matrix entries to change, click on tip of red vector and drag around an approximate circle to see corresponding blue vector]; try first with the default values, then try for a11=0, a12=1, a21=1, a22=0, then try  for the matrices of 6.1: 1,2,7. See if you can guess the eigenvector directions and the corresponding eigenvalues (all integer triangles locating the vectors and integer eigenvalues)  for these matrices; write down a simple representative eigenvector (with the smallest integer components, say) and its eigenvalue that you can read off from the applet as explained within the introductory webpage to compare with your matrix calculations for these textbook HW problems . Then find them by the eigenvector process.

    6.1: 1, 2, 7 [1, 2, 7 mw]; 13;  Ignore polynomial division discussion, use technology for roots of polynomials!

    frequency: f or ω ?
    angular frequency ω is in radians/time but "ordinary" frequency is in cycles/time (number of multiples of one revolution of the circle): ω = 2 π f . Multiplying the frequency by 2 π radians converts it from a pure number of revolutions to radians per time unit. The reciprocal of the frequency f is just the period T = 1/f = 2 π / ω . We only need angular frequency in our course, but when we re-express such frequencies in Hz (cycles/sec) we are converting to the ordinary frequency for ease of interpretation, since radian units mean nothing to us.

    [do everything by hand for 2x2 matrices;
     for 3x3 or higher, go thru process: use Maple determinant: |A-λI| = 0 (right click on matrix, Standard Operations),  then solve to find characteristic equation and its solutions, the eigenvalues, back sub them into the matrix equations (A-λI) x = 0 and solve by rref, backsub, read off eigenvector basis of soln space, NO POLYNOMIAL DIVISION! compare to Maple's Eigenvector result, context menu only a].

  41. T:  6.2: Lecture Notes 6.2: Diagonalization;
     diagonalization [now revisit coupled system of DEQs in a handout giving a preview of what we are about to embark on: why diagonalization?];

    on the geometry of diagonalization and first order linear homogeneous DE systems
    Print out 3 copies of this grid page for the homework problems;
    0) [[ read the worksheet explanation: 6.2.34]];
    If you have time, find the eigenvalues/eigenvectors by hand, if not use Maple:

    1) For the matrix of 7.2.14:  A = <<-3|2>,<-3|4>> entered by rows, find the eigenvalues and order them by increasing value, then rescaling if necessary to obtain two independent integer component eigenvectors {b1, b2}, make the basis changing matrix B = <b1|b2>, use the coordinate transformations x = B y and y = B-1 x to find the new coordinates of the point x = <x1, x2> = <0,5> in the plane, then make a grid diagram with the new (labeled) coordinate axes associated with this eigenbasis (labeled also by the eigenvalue λ = <value> ) together with basis vectors and the projection parallelogram of this point; finally evaluate the matrix product AB = B-1A B to see that it is diagonal and has the corresponding eigenvalues in order along the diagonal.[multiply b1 and b2 by A to confirm the eigenvalues];
    2) For the matrix of 7.4.2:  A = <<-5|4>,<4|-5>>, repeat with <x1, x2> = <4,2>.
    3) For the matrix of 7.4.2:  A = <<-40|8>,<12|-60>>, repeat with <x1, x2> = <-4,5>.

    This is what you should have done:

    No more sections of chapter 6 will be covered.
    7.1 is better done with "reduction of order" instead of "increasing the order" to decouple systems.
