1.3 Separable Equations - Mathematics


When a differential equation is of the form (y' = f(x)), we can just integrate: (y = int f(x) dx + C). Unfortunately this method no longer works for the general form of the equation (y' = f(x, y)). Integrating both sides yields

[y = int f(x, y) dx + C]

Notice the dependence on (y) in the integral.

1.3.1 Separable equations

Let us suppose that the equation is separable. That is, let us consider

[y' = f(x)g(y),]

for some functions (f(x)) and (g(y)). Let us write the equation in the Leibniz notation

[frac{dy}{dx} = f(x)g(y)]

Then we rewrite the equation as

[frac{dy}{g(y)} = f(x) dx]

Now both sides look like something we can integrate. We obtain

[int frac{dy}{g(y)} = int f(x) dx + C]

If we can find closed form expressions for these two integrals, we can, perhaps, solve for (y.)

Example (PageIndex{1}):

Take the equation

[ y' = xy]

First note that (y = 0) is a solution, so assume (y e 0) from now on. Write the equation as (frac{dy}{dx} = xy,) then

[int frac{dy}{y} = int x dx + C.]

We compute the antiderivatives to get

[ln left vert y ight vert = frac{x^2}{2} + C]

Or

[left vert y ight vert = e^{frac{x^2}{2}} e^{C} = De^{frac{x^2}{2}} ]

where (D > 0) is some constant. Because (y = 0) is a solution and because of the absolute value we actually can write:

(y = De^{frac{x^2}{2}} )

for any number (D) (including zero or negative).

We check:

[y' = Dxe^{frac{x^2}{2}} = x left ( De^{frac{x^2}{2}} ight ) = xy]

We should be a little bit more careful with this method. You may be worried that we were integrating in two different variables. We seemed to be doing a different operation to each side. Let us work this method out more rigorously.

[frac{dy}{dx} = f(x)g(y)]

We rewrite the equation as follows. Note that (y = y(x)) is a function of (x) and so is (frac{dy}{dx}!)

[frac{1}{g(y)} frac{dy}{dx} = f(x)]

We integrate both sides with respect to (x.)

[int frac{1}{g(y)} frac{dy}{dx} dx = int f(x) dx + C]

We can use the change of variables formula.

[int frac{1}{g(y)} dy = int f(x) dx + C]

And we are done.

It is clear that we might sometimes get stuck even if we can do the integration. For example, take the separable equation

[y' = frac{xy}{y^2 + 1}]

We separate variables,

[frac{y^2 + 1}{y} dy = left ( y + frac{1}{y} ight ) dy = x dx]

We integrate to get

[frac{y^2}{2} + ln left vert y ight vert = frac{x^2}{2} + C]

or perhaps the easier looking expression (where (D = 2C))

[y^2 + 2ln left vert y ight vert = x^2 + D]

It is not easy to find the solution explicitly as it is hard to solve for (y). We, therefore, leave the solution in this form and call it an implicit solution. It is still easy to check that an implicit solution satisfies the differential equation. In this case, we differentiate to get

[y' left ( 2y + frac{2}{y} ight ) = 2x]

It is simple to see that the differential equation holds. If you want to compute values for (y), you might have to be tricky. For example, you can graph (x) as a function of (y), and then flip your paper. Computers are also good at some of these tricks.

We note that the above equation also has the solution (y = 0). The general solution is (y^2 + 2ln left vert y ight vert = x^2 + C) together with (y = 0). These outlying solutions such as (y = 0) are sometimes called singular solutions.

Example (PageIndex{2}):

Solve (x^2y' = 1 - x^2 + y^2 -x^2y^2), (y(1) = 0.)

First factor the right hand side to obtain

[x^2y' = left ( 1- x^2 ight ) left ( 1 + y^2 ight )]

We separate variables, integrate and solve for (y)

[frac{y'}{1 + y^2} = frac {1 - x^2}{x^2},]

[frac{y'}{1 + y^2} = frac {1}{ x^2} -1,]

[ ext{arctan}(y) = -frac{1}{x^2} - x + C,]

[y = an left( -frac{1}{x} - x + C ight )]

Now solve for the initial condition, (0 = an (-2 + C)) to get ( C = 2 ( { m{~or~}} 2 + pi, { m{~etc~}} dots)). The solution we are seeking is, therefore,

[y = an left( -frac{1}{x} - x + C ight )]

Example (PageIndex{3}):

Bob made a cup of coffee, and Bob likes to drink coffee only once it will not burn him at 60 degrees. Initially at time (t = 0) minutes, Bob measured the temperature and the coffee was 89 degrees Celsius. One minute later, Bob measured the coffee again and it had 85 degrees. The temperature of the room (the ambient temperature) is 22 degrees. When should Bob start drinking?

Let (T) be the temperature of the coffee, and let (A) be the ambient (room) temperature. Newton’s law of cooling states that the rate at which the temperature of the coffee is changing is proportional to the difference between the ambient temperature and the temperature of the coffee. That is,

[frac{dT}{dt} = k(A - T),]

for some constant (k). For our setup ( A = 22), (T(0) = 89), (T(1) = 85). We separate variables and integrate (let (C) and (D) denote arbitrary constants)

[frac{1}{T -A} frac {dT}{dt} = -k,]

[ln (T - A) = -kt + C, , , , , , left ( ext {note that} T - A > 0 ight )]

[ T - A = De^{-kt},]

[ T = A + De^{-kt}]

That is, ( T = 22 + De^{-kt}). We plug in the first condition: ( 89 = T(0) = 22 + D), and hence (D = 67). So (T = 22 + 67e^{-kt}). The second condition says ( 85 = T(1) = 22 + 67e^{-k}). Solving for (k) we get (k = -ln frac{85-22}{67} approx 0.0616). Now we solve for the time (t) that gives us a temperature of 60 degrees. That is, we solve (60 = 22 + 67e^{-0.0616t}) to get (t = -frac {ln frac {60 -22}{67}}{0.0616} approx 9.21) minutes. So Bob can begin to drink the coffee at just over 9 minutes from the time Bob made it. That is probably about the amount of time it took us to calculate how long it would take.

Example (PageIndex{4}):

Find the general solution to (y' = -frac {xy^2}{3}) (including singular solutions).

First note that ( y = 0) is a solution (a singular solution). So assume that ( y e 0) and write

[ -frac {3}{y^2} y' = x ,]

[ frac {3}{y} = frac {x^2}{2} + C,]

[ y = frac {3}{ frac{x^2}{2} + C} = frac {6}{x^2 + 2C}.]


Separable Algebras

This book presents a comprehensive introduction to the theory of separable algebras over commutative rings. After a thorough introduction to the general theory, the fundamental roles played by separable algebras are explored. For example, Azumaya algebras, the henselization of local rings, and Galois theory are rigorously introduced and treated. Interwoven throughout these applications is the important notion of étale algebras. Essential connections are drawn between the theory of separable algebras and Morita theory, the theory of faithfully flat descent, cohomology, derivations, differentials, reflexive lattices, maximal orders, and class groups.

The text is accessible to graduate students who have finished a first course in algebra, and it includes necessary foundational material, useful exercises, and many nontrivial examples.

Readership

Graduate students and researchers interested in algebra.

Reviews & Endorsements

The book is neatly arranged. It can be used as a textbook for self-study and as a reference text for most of the topics related to separability. It will be a valuable resource for students and researchers and has the potential to be a standard reference on separable algebras for many years.

-- Wolfgang Rump, Mathematical Reviews

The thorough and comprehensive treatment of separable, Azumaya, and tale algebras, Hensel rings, the Galois theory of rings, and Galois cohomology of rings makes the book under review an indispensable reference for the graduate student interested in these topics. As an added bonus, the book comes with a rich, 155 item, bibliography, well-chosen examples, calculations, and sets of exercises in each chapter, which makes this book an excellent textbook for self-study or for a topics course on separable algebras.

1.3 Separable Equations - Mathematics

A separable first-order ode has the form:

where g(t) and h(y) are given functions. Note that y'(t) is the product of functions of the independent variable and dependent variable.

To solve this problem, divide by h(y):

Here we have relabeled 1/h(y(t)) by H(y(t)). Now integrate both sides with respect to t

The left-hand side can be simplified using the method of substition for integrals. Let u=y(t). Then du=y'(t)dt. We then have

The final answer is (we change from the dummy variable u to the dummy variable y)

We can also write the answer in terms of definite integrals if an initial condition is given. We have

Make the subsitution in the first integral u=y(s), du=y'(s)ds. The lower limit of the new integral is

The upper limit of the new integral is y(t). We then have

In this case H(y)=y and g(t)=exp(t)+1. Computing the integrals we have

The general solution of the ode is

Applying the initial condition, we find that

C=9/2-exp(1)-1=0.782. The solution of the ode is

We can solve for y. We obtain

Notice that we take the positive square root. Why? We know that y(1)=3, a positive number.


Uncorrelation without mean-independence

A simple counterexample is ((X,Y)) uniformly distributed on the vertices of a regular polygon centered on the origin, not symmetric with respect to either axis.

For example, let ((X, Y)) have uniform distribution with values in [ig<(1,3), (-3,1), (-1,-3), (3,-1)ig>.]

Then (mathbb(XY) = 0) and (mathbb(X)=mathbb(Y)=0), so (X) and (Y) are uncorrelated.

Yet (mathbb(X|Y=1) = -3), (mathbb(X|Y=3)=1) so we don’t have (mathbb(X|Y) = mathbb(X)). Likewise, we don’t have (mathbb(Y|X) = mathbb(Y)).

1.3 Separable Equations - Mathematics

Natasha Glydon

Math is in every kitchen, on every recipe card, and at each holiday gathering. The mathematics of cooking often goes unnoticed, but in reality, there is a large quantity of math skills involved in cooking and baking.

Conversions

Most ranges have dials that display the cooking temperature of the oven. In North America, most of these temperatures are written in Fahrenheit and usually are in increments of 25°. In Canada, recipe and oven temperatures are often presented in degrees Celsius. It is important then to understand how to convert a Fahrenheit temperature to an appropriate Celsius temperature. For example, let&rsquos say your oven displays Fahrenheit temperatures with 50° increments. Your recipe tells you to bake your dish at 220°C. What temperature do you turn your oven to? Well, you will need to convert 220°C to a Fahrenheit measurement.

We use this formula to convert Celsius to Fahrenheit:

To make sure you do not over bake the cookies, you will need to set the oven to 428°F. But remember, your oven only displays the temperature in 50° increments, so you must estimate on the dial where 428°F is, somewhere between 400°F and 450°F. The relationship between celsius and fahrenheit is a linear function:

We also use conversions when we bake or cook to convert sizes and amounts. Many recipes are written in imperial units (teaspoon, tablespoons, and cups). Some newer recipes and measuring devices in Canada are labeled in metric units, such as milliliters (mL). If the recipe calls for ½ cup of butter and your measuring equipment is labeled in mL, how will you know which measurement to use? We can apply this conversion formula: 1 cup = 237mL. This means that ½ cup = 118.5mL. Again, this exact measurement is probably not on the measuring cup. It is probably closest to 125mL, so we will again have to estimate.

Most recipes give guidelines as to how much a single batch will produce. But what if you want more? It seems too time consuming to mix up another batch. What if the recipe makes only one dozen cupcakes and you need three dozen? Clearly, three dozen is three times more than 1 dozen, so we can multiply all the ingredients by three to make a larger batch. It is also important to understand how to multiply fractions. If the cupcake recipe calls for ¾ cup of milk and we want to triple it, we need to know that:

So, we will need 2 and 1/4 cups of milk to make three dozen cupcakes.

This knowledge of fractions is also helpful when we need to make our batch smaller. For example, recipe guidelines approximate that each batch will yield 6 dozen cookies. But, my family is small and I only want 2 dozen cookies. First, we need to see the relationship between 2 and 6. We can see that 2 dozen is one third (1/3) of 6 dozen because 2 x 3 = 6. That means that in order to make only 2 dozen cookies, we will need to use one third of each ingredient. So, if the recipe asks for 2 teaspoons of baking powder, we will only need 2/3 of a teaspoon, since

If we do not have a measuring spoon that is equal to 2/3 teaspoon, we may need to use 1/3 twice, or estimate using ¼.

When recipes indicate how much a particular batch will make, they give a general amount of food. If we are cooking for a group, we need to estimate how much each person will eat and make appropriate amounts of the particular item. For example, if a package of spaghetti makes 1L of cooked spaghetti, will we have enough to feed six people with one package? If not, how much of a second package will we have to use? First, we need to estimate how much each person will eat. We can guess that each person will eat 1 cup of spaghetti, which is 237mL. For convenience sake, we can round this to 250mL. That means that six people will eat 1500mL of spaghetti. If 1L=1000mL, we know that we will need to make one whole package, plus half of the second package to ensure that everyone has enough to eat.

Sometimes, we may not have all the ingredients to make a recipe, but we may have something we can fittingly substitute. How does this affect the measurement amounts in the recipe? For example, let&rsquos imagine we are making Rice Krispie cake. The recipe calls for 32 large marshmallows, but we only have miniature marshmallows. We can still use the small marshmallows, but we will need to estimate how many mini marshmallows would make one large marshmallow, and multiply that number by 32.

What if you want to spice up your chocolate chip cookies by adding almonds and coconut? Your recipe calls for 2 cups of chocolate chips, but you want to add 1/3 cup of almonds and 1/6 cup of coconut. How much chocolate chips do you still have to add? Well, we simply need to subtract, using fractions.

We still need to add 1 and ½ cups of chocolate chips. It is important to remember that when adding and subtracting fractions, we need to use a common denominator.

Weight often affects cooking time. Consider the following hypothetical situation: we are cooking an 8 pound turkey for Christmas dinner. If the turkey needs to thaw in the refrigerator for 24 hours, per 5 pounds, we need to take the turkey out of the freezer in advance. We can use a proportional relation to help us decide how early to thaw the turkey.

The above proportion reads as follows: 5 pounds is to 24 hours as 8 pounds is to x hours. By cross-multiplying and dividing, we can find an answer of 38.4 hours, which is the solution for x.
If we are instructed to cook the turkey for 20 minutes per pound, how long do we need to cook the turkey? Well, 20 minutes per pound for 8 pounds is 20 x 8 = 160 minutes. And, 160 minutes is two hours and 40 minutes. If we only knew the weight of our turkey in kilograms, we would need another conversion formula (kilograms to pounds) to find the weight of the turkey in pounds first, and then apply the recommendations.

We also use math when cooking and baking to estimate the cost of a certain dish. We can understand that cheesecake is more expensive to make than a batch of cookies, particularly when people buy ingredients such as flour, sugar, and butter in bulk and cream cheese is more expensive. When comparing recipes, it may be beneficial to estimate the cost of each recipe.

Mathematical skills are used quite frequently when baking and cooking. It can be very helpful to understand how math affects the quality of culinary in order to make the most delicious meals and treats.

Math Error Analysis

I am a math teacher and I have been creating and using math error analysis activities with my students (Grades 5 - 8) for the past 13 years.

Benefits of Math Error Analysis:
Giving students opportunities to identify and correct errors in presented solutions allows them to show their understanding of the mathematical concepts I have just taught.

My Experience:
Every time I incorporate math error analysis activities into my lessons I am always amazed at how quickly it leads to richer discussions and deeper thinking among my students. They suddenly become little math critics and their focus broadens from getting the answer to understanding the process.

Whats Included:
Each of my 'Math Error Analysis Activities' includes 10 real-world WORD PROBLEMS that are solved incorrectly. Students have to IDENTIFY THE ERROR, provide the CORRECT SOLUTION and share a helpful STRATEGY for solving the problem. An ANSWER KEY has also been provided with examples of possible answers.

How to Use:
When I present this activity to my students, I tell them that these are errors that students from my other class made and I need their help to correct them. Students LOVE correcting other students mistakes.

I have my students use these activities with a partner, as a warm-up , as classwork, homework, in math centers and for group work.

How to Download:
I currently have math error analysis activities for more than 30 math topics for grades 5 - 8.


Separable Differential Equations

If the function $$ <>, ight)>>> $$ can be written as the product of the function $$ <> ight)>>> $$ (function that depends only on $$ $$ ) and the function $$ ight)> $$ (function that depends only on $$ $$ ), such a differential equation is called separable.

Let's see how it is solved.

Integrating both sides yields $$ intfrac<<>><< ight)>>>=int<> ight)>>>+ $$ , where $$ $$ is an arbitrary constant.

This equation is separable and can be rewrritten as $$ frac<<3>><<>^<<4>>>=+<1> ight)> $$ .

Rewriting it a bit, we obtain that $$ =-frac<<1>><>]<><<2>><>^<<2>>++>>>> $$ . This is the general solution. To find the particular solution, plug in the initial values and find the constant $$ $$ .

Now, let's take a look at another example.

There are also 2 particular cases: when $$ <> ight)>>>= <1>$$ (the differential equation doesn't contain $$ $$ ) or $$ <> ight)>>>= <1>$$ (the differential equation doesn't contain $$ $$ ).

Let's do some more practice.

Integrating both sides gives $$ <>^<>=+ $$ , where $$ $$ is an arbitrary constant.

And one more final example.

Integrating both sides gives $$ =- ight)>>>+ $$ , where $$ $$ is an arbitrary constant.

To find the particular solution, use the initial condition $$ ight)>= <5>$$ :
