c. Homogenous ODEs

## Definition of Homogenous Function

The function f ( x, y) is a homogeneous function of degree n if f (tx, ty)  t n f ( x, y) .
Example: Given

 
f ( x, y )  x 3  y 3  f (tx, ty )  tx 3  ty 3  t 3 x 3  y 3  t 3 f ( x, y ) ⇒

## f ( x, y)  x3  y3 is homogeneous function of degree 3.

Note: In many instance, examining the total degree of each term can help recognize whether a
function is homogenous or not. For example, function f ( x, y)  x 3  xy 2  y 3 , since
every term, x ,
3
xy 2 and y 3 has each a total degree 3.

Exercise:
Determine whether the following function is homogenous and determine the degree.

1. f ( x, y)  x 4  xy3  y 4
2. f ( x, y)  x 2 y  y 2
3. f ( x, y)  x 3  xy 2  y 3
Solution:
1. Homogenous of degree 4

## 2. Non homogenous because xy 2 is degree 3 and y 2 is degree 2

3. Homogenous of degree 3

Definition
dy
A differential equation of the form  f ( x, y ) is called a homogeneous ODE if only if
dx
M ( x, y)
f ( x, y)  or M ( x, y)dx  N ( x, y)dy  0
N ( x, y)
where M (x, y) and N(x, y) are homogenous function of the same degree.

## Solution to Homogeneous ODEs

To solve a homogenous differential equation, the steps are:
i. Substitute
y  vx
dy dv
dy  vdx  xdv or vx
dx dx
ii. The given differential equation reduces to separable form.
Example 4:
Solve the following differential equation

( x 2  y 2 ) dx  xydy  0
Solution:

## M ( x, y)  x 2  y 2 and N ( x, y)  xy are both homogeneous functions of degree 2.

Let y  vx  dy  vdx  xdv

## Given equation reduces to

d. Exact ODEs
A first order ODE of the form M ( x, y )dx  N ( x, y )dy  0 is an Exact ODE if only if

M N
 . The solution of Exact ODE is a function f(x,y) = c such that
y x
f f

x y
Example 5:

Solution:

M
M ( x, y)  y 2  2 x   2y
y
N
N ( x, y )  2 xy   2y
x
M N
The given equation is exact ODEs, since   2y
y x
f
 M ( x, y )  y 2  2 x  f  ( y 2  2 x)x   f   ( y 2  2 x) x
x
Then, f ( x, y)  y 2 x  x 2  c1 ( y) .......... .........( 1)

## From (2) and (3), we obtain

dc1 ( y) dc ( y)
2 xy  2 yx   1  0  dc1 ( y)  0
dy dy
  c1 ( y)  0  c1 ( y)  c2

Hence, f ( x, y)  y 2 x  x 2  c2  c3  y 2 x  x 2  c, c  c3  c2

## So, the solution is xy 2  x 2  c, where c  c3 - c2

From (1) :  3 x 2 y 2  e y  f  (3 x 2 y 2  e y ) y
y
 
 f ( x, y )   3 x 2 y 2  e y y  x 2 y 3  e y  c1 ( x) .....(3)

So, from (3) : f ( x, y )  x 2 y 3  e y  2 x  c2  c3
 x 2 y 3  e y  2 x  c, c  c3  c2

## f. Equation reducible to linear form:

Bernoulli’s equation

dy
An equation of the form  P( x) y  Q( x) y n , where P and Q are functions of x alone, is
dx
known as Bernoulli’s equation.

## We observe that if n = 0 or 1, then the Bernoulli’s equation is actually a linear equation.

Method of Solution:

## Dividing both sides by y n , we get

dy
y n  P( x) y1 n  Q( x)
dx

dv dy dy 1 dv
Let v  y1 n , then  (1  n) y  n or y  n  .
dx dx dx 1  n dx

## putting y-n+1 = v and hence (-n+1) y-n(dy/dx) = dv/dx

1 dv
Therefore the equation reduces to  P( x)v  Q( x) or
