**Homework 12** (*due 3 May*) (solution): p.257: #1a, 1b, 1c, 1d

**Homework 13** (*due 10 May*) (solution): In this homework, we will use the Euler method (Section 6.2.1 in the text) to approximate the solution of the initial value problem
\[ \left\{ \begin{array}{ll}
x' = e^{-\sin(x)} \\
x(0)=-1
\end{array} \right. \]
over the interval $[0,5]$.

1. Using $h=0.5$, approximate $x(0.5)$ and $x(1)$.

2. Using $h=0.25$, approximate $x(0.25)$ and $x(0.5)$.

3. Using $h=0.1$, approximate $x(0.1)$ and $x(0.2$.

4. Use a spreadsheet to plot the appoximations for each of the $h$'s above on the interval $[0,5]$. You should not expect to be able to find a "closed form solution" to this IVP.

__Quizzes__

**Quiz 1** (*due 16 January*): (solution) Given $v(t)=Ve^{-\frac{kt}{m}}$, show that $v$ solves the initial value problem $\left\{ \begin{array}{ll}
-kv = mv' \\
v(0)=V
\end{array} \right.$

**Quiz 2** (*due 23 January*): (solution) Show that $x(t)=\dfrac{e^{2t}-1}{e^{2t}+1}$ solves $\left\{ \begin{array}{ll}
x'&=1-x^2\\
x(0)&=0
\end{array} \right.$.

**Quiz 3** (*due 25 January*): (solution) Solve the initial value problem $\left\{ \begin{array}{ll}
x' = 2t \\
x(0)=5.
\end{array} \right.$

**Quiz 4**

**Quiz 5** (*due 22 February*): Compute the Laplace transform of $\mathscr{L}\{t^2\}(s)$ from the definition of $\mathscr{L}$.

**Quiz 6** (*due 20 March*) (solution): Solve $\left\{ \begin{array}{ll}
x' = -y \\
y'=x \\
x(0)=1, y(0)=0.
\end{array} \right.$

**Quiz 7** (*due 25 March*) (solution): Find the inverse of the matrix $A = \begin{bmatrix} 3&0 \\ 1&10\end{bmatrix}$ and show that it works properly by computing $AA^{-1}$.

**Quiz 8** (*due 1 April*) (solution): In class we found the eigenvalues of $A=\begin{bmatrix} -2&-3\\3 & -2 \end{bmatrix}$ were $\lambda=-2\pm 3i$. We then showed that an eigenvector associated with $\lambda=-2+3i$ was $\vec{v}=\begin{bmatrix} 1\\ -i \end{bmatrix}$. Find an eigenvector associated with the other eigenvalue $\lambda=-2-3i$.

**Quiz 9** (*due 8 April*) (solution): In class we showed that $\lambda=0$ and $\vec{v}=\begin{bmatrix} 1 \\ 2 \end{bmatrix}$ is an eigenpair for the matrix $A=\begin{bmatrix} 2&1 \\ 4&2 \end{bmatrix}$. Find the other eigenpair for this matrix.
