**Second Order Equations With Nonnegative Characteristic Form**

Moment order equations with nonnegative attribute shape represent a brand new department of the speculation of partial differential equations, having arisen in the final two decades, and having gone through a very in depth improvement lately. An equation of the shape (1) is called an equation of moment order with nonnegative attribute shape on a suite G, kj if at each one aspect x belonging to G we have now a (xHk~j ~ zero for any vector ~ = (~l' .

3. What can (b) Determine whether these values for J1, given rise to periodic solutions of period 2. 6. 10)]) Economists define the equilibrium price p* of a commodity as the price at which the demand function D(n) is equal to the supply function Sen + I). 9), respectively. 11). (b) Let ms = 2, bs = 3, md = 1, and bd = 15. Find the equilibrium price p*. Then draw a stair step diagram, for p(O) = 2. 7. Continuation of Problem 6: Economists use a different stair step diagram, as we will explain in the following steps: (i) Let the x-axis represent the price pen) and the y-axis represent Sen + 1) or D(n).

Ii) The k cycle O(b) is unstable if If'(x(O»i'(x(I), ... , f'(x(k - 1»1 > 1. -----'c--_. 12b. 8 is unstable relative to T2. 1). Notice that by using the chain rule one may show that [fk(x(r))]' = f'(x(O))f'(x(1)), ... , /,(x(k - 1». 5, Problem 12). The conclusion of the theorem now follows. 21. 85 defined on the interval [-2,2]. Find the 2 cycles and detennine their stability. 85. 1275=0. 2) This equation has four roots, two of which are fixed points of the map Q(x). 85 = O. 15 = O. 4). 20. 6 < 1.

Let Q(x) = ax 2 + bx + c, a 7. x(n 8. =1= 0, and x* be a fixed point of Q. Prove the following statements: (i) If Q' (x*) = -1, then x* is asymptotically stable. Then prove the rest of Remark (i). (ii) If Q'(x*) = 1, then x* is unstable. Then prove the rest of Remark (ii). 9. Show that if If'(x*)1 < 1, there exists an interval J = (x* - e, x* + e) such that 1f'(x)1 :::: M < 1 for all x E J and for some constant M. 10. 3), g(x*) = g'(x*) = 0 and g"(x*) =1= O. 3). ) 11. 12, part (ii). 12. 4). Show also that the converse is false.
