That is correct, however, I made a typo in my DE. It should be x''-4x'+5x=0. The idea is that you can find the characteristic equation from the DE, hence the roots, and then the general solution. So you may work backwards as well. Try it again.
No, that is a bit complicated. If you have the differential equation x''-4x'+x=0, how would you find the general solution? Just go through a few steps, then should have the solution to your problem as well. If not, I will give you another hint.
3 and 4 do not matter. Work backwards. If the solution in this case involves sines and cosines then we can conclude that the roots to the auxiliary equation are complex. Find the roots and then the polynomial. You will then have your differential equation and hence the values of r and k.

Consider the functional I:W^{1,2}(\Omega)\times W^{1,2}(\Omega)\rightarrow \mathbb{R} such that I(f_1,f_2)=\int_{\Omega}{\dfrac{1}{2}|\nabla f_1|^2+\dfrac{1}{2}|\nabla f_1|^2+e^{f_1+f_2}-f_1-f_2}dx. I would like to show that the functional is strictly convex by using the...
I am not sure what you mean by elemination failing. However, elimination give many rows of zero and hence infinitely many solutions for Bx=0. Consider doing elimination on C for a 2x2 matrix with the same columns and see what are your solutions.

Bx=0 and Cx=0 are homogeneous system of equations. So there are only two posibilities for their solutions. 1. Either the solutions are trivial and unique or 2. Infinitely many solutions.
Ask yourself if B is invertible? If it is, then multiply both sides of Bx=0 by its inverse to obtain only...
Assuming K and L are constants.
How about dividing by (L-N) on both sides from dN/dt = k(L-N) instead of distributing the K? This equation is separable.

Reading through Spivak's Calculus on Manifolds and some basic books in Analysis I notice that the divergence theorem is derived for surfaces or manifolds with boundary. I am trying to understand the case where I can apply the divergence theorem on a surface without boundary.

Hello everyone,

So, I have made some progress by rewriting the problem and using L'hopitals rule. But I am still off by a factor of \dfrac{p}{2}.
rewriting: |f+tg|^2=f\bar{f}+tf\bar{g}+t\bar{f}g+t^2g\bar{g}
When I apply L'Hopitals rule I get \dfrac{p}{2}|f|^{p-2}(\bar{f}g+f\bar{g})
Homework Statement
For complex numbers f and g, and for 1<p<\infty we have \lim_{t\rightarrow 0}\dfrac{|f+tg|^p-|f|^p}{t}=|f|^{p-2}(\bar{f}g+f\bar{g}); i.e., |f+tg|^p is differentiable.
I would like to show that the above statement is true.

Ok, I have an idea on how to prove this now. Any finite cover of A must also cover the interval (0,1). Thus the sum of the lengths of the intervals that cover A must be greater than 1 since they also cover the interval (0,1). However, I still am having difficulty writing down an argument to show...
