    Showing that a function is surjective onto a set

    I have to show that $\forall z\in B(0,0.4)$, there exists an $x\in B(0,1)$ such that $f(x)=z$ but I am not sure how to show this. From the reverse triangle inequality $$-|f(x)-f(y)|+|x-y|\leq 0.1|x-y|\implies |f(x)-f(y)|\geq 0.9|x-y|$$ im not sure if this helps.

    A Help with the Derrick scaling argument and topological solitons

    I have been reading Manton & Sutcliffe for some time now and can't quite wrap my head around something. If you take the Hopf invariant N of a topological soliton ϕ then its Skyrme-Faddeev energy (which I hope I've gotten right up to some constants) E=∫∂iϕ⋅∂iϕ+(∂iϕ×∂jϕ)⋅(∂iϕ×∂jϕ) d3x satisfies...

    What approach should be used when solving a circuit?

    I am close to graduating as an EE major but I have never been able to organize a step by step method on analyzing a circuit. It seems to me that every time I am trying to analize a circuit I end up with a bunch of equations and nothing more. I know that I should: 1. Know what im solving for...

    Analysis Books for learning Fourier series expansion

    Hello Everyone! I want to learn about Fourier series (not Fourier transform), that is approximating a continuous periodic function with something like this ##a_0 \sum_{n=1}^{\infty} (a_n \cos nt + b_n \sin nt)##. I tried some videos and lecture notes that I could find with a google search but...

    I Find the only periodic solution of an ODE

    Find the only periodic solution for 𝑦′+𝑦=𝑏(𝑥) with 𝑏:ℝ→ℝ has a period of 2𝑇 and is 1 for 𝑥(0,𝑇) and −1 for 𝑥(−𝑇,0). The ODE is easy to solve: 𝑦(𝑥)=exp(−𝑥)⋅𝑐+1 and 𝑦(𝑥)=exp(−𝑥)⋅𝑐−1. But how can I find the 𝑐 such that the solution is periodic with a period of 2𝑇? The solution is...

    In AC analysis do I alternate the current and voltage?

    Lets say I am analyzing a simple AC voltage source with a resistor. In the positive voltage peak then I will use V and I say current is flowing clockwise. When I am analyzing the -Vpk iteration then do I make the current counter clockwise too or do i keep it clockwise? Thanks.

    I Limit of an extension

    When we define a limit of a function at point c, we talk about an open interval. The question is, can it occur that function has a limit on a certain interval, but it's extension does not? To me it seems obvious that an extension will have the same limit at c, since there is already infinitely...

    I Why do systematic uncertainties disappear using ratios?
