Y(0) = 1, where p(x) = 2, 0 ≤ x ≤ 1 1, x > 1. 5. Let q(x) be continuous in [0, ∞) and limx→∞ q(x) = L. For the DE y + ay = q(x), show the following: (i) If a > 0, every solution approaches L/a as x → ∞. (ii) If a < 0, there is one and only one solution which approaches L/a as x → ∞. 6. 10) in [x0 , ∞), and let z(x) be a continuously differentiable function in [x0 , ∞) such that z + p(x)z ≤ q(x), z(x0 ) ≤ y0 . Show that z(x) ≤ y(x) for all x in [x0 , ∞). In particular, for the problem y + y = cos x, y(0) = 1 verify that 2e−x − 1 ≤ y(x) ≤ 1, x ∈ [0, ∞).

1) appears as y(x) = c1 y1 (x) + c2 y2 (x) + yp (x). 6) satisfying y(x0 ) = y (x0 ) = 0. 2. Consider the DE y + y = cot x. For the corresponding homogeneous DE y + y = 0, sin x and cos x are the solutions. Thus, its general solution can be written as sin t cos t sin x cos x sin t cos t cos t − sin t x y(x) = c1 cos x + c2 sin x + cos t dt sin t x cos t dt sin t x x cos2 t = c1 cos x + c2 sin x − cos x dt cos tdt + sin x sin t x 1 − sin2 t dt = c1 cos x + c2 sin x − cos x sin x + sin x sin t = c1 cos x + c2 sin x − (sin t cos x − sin x cos t) x = c1 cos x + c2 sin x − cos x sin x − sin x x sin tdt + sin x 1 dt sin t cosec t(cosec t − cot t) dt (cosec t − cot t) = c1 cos x + c2 sin x + sin x ln[cosec x − cot x].

6) together with the initial conditions y(x0 ) = y0 , has a unique solution. 12) Second-Order Linear Equations 39 Now we shall show that second-order DEs with constant coefficients can be solved explicitly. 13) where a and b are constants, as a first step we look back at the equation y + ay = 0 (a is a constant) for which all solutions are multiples of y = e−ax . 13) also some form of exponential function would be a reasonable choice and would utilize the property that the differentiation of an exponential function erx always yields a constant multiplied by erx .
