Hi, here are some maths questions that need to be done with detailed working out that looks simple. There are six questions and I will upload them once there is an expert available. They are based on differential equations and sequences and series.

OK, I can do that. I should be able to upload a PDF solution in an hour or two.

Customer :

Sounds great. Thanks Arthur for helping again...

Dr Arthur Rubin :

OK, here should be a complete solution. Let me know if you need clarification or more detail. (As I'm on the Pacific coast of the US, I'm going to go to sleep shortly. I'll be back within 7 hours.)

Well, if you try substituting y = exp (t x) into the equation d^2y/dx^2 - 6 dy/dx + 10 y = 0, you get t^2 - 6t + 10 = 0, which has roots t = 3 ± i. Hence, the general solution is

y = a exp( (3+i) x) + b exp((3-i)x) = exp(3 x) ( (a+b)cos(x) + i (a-b)sin(x)).

It's the quadratic equation; the solution of a t^2 - b t + c = 0 is t = (b ± sqrt(b^2 - 4 a c))/(2 a). In this case, we get t = (6 ± sqrt(36 - 40))/2 = (6 ± sqrt(-4))/2 = (6 ± 2 i)/2 = 3 ± i.

About question 4. Which formula was used to get the sequences for question a, b and c. And if it's possible could you please give me a list of all the sequences and series formula's generally used. Thanks

For 4 (a), it was just substituting values for "n", noting sqrt(n^3) = n sqrt(n). For 4 (b), it was just substituting and adding, with no indication that there is a general formula for the partial sums, although the sum of the convergent series might be found as. For 4 (c), the usual convergent series that can be used are: sum n^-(1+ε), sum (1/(n (log n)^(1+ε))) sum(1/(n (log n) (log log n)^(1+ε))), etc.

I'm heading off again; should be back in about 3 hours, at which time I'll probably need to get some sleep.
