Luís André de Pina Cabral e Villas-Boas (Portuguese pronunciation: [luˈiz‿ɐ̃ˈdɾɛ ðɨ ˈpinɐ kɐˈβɾaɫ i ˈvilɐʒ ˈboɐʃ]; born 17 October 1977), known as André Villas-Boas, is a Portuguese football manager, who most recently was the manager of Ligue 1 club Marseille. He is one of a growing number of top-level managers who have never played football professionally and one of the few managers to have never played beyond youth football.Highlights in his career include an undefeated 2010–11 season in the Primeira Liga with Porto, winning four trophies and becoming the youngest manager ever to win a European title in the process, helping Tottenham to their then-record tally of 72 points in the Premier League during the 2012–13 season (the highest points for a team to finish outside the top four at the time) and three trophies during his spell with Zenit, achieving the fifth league title in the club's history.
I can use the convolution integrals and get the idea of this concept for t<a. But, I can't get the answer for t>a.
MY idea is substitute ##f(t) = 0## to the ODE, then I have second order linear differential equations with right hand is zero. So, the solution is
$$y=Ae^{i\omega t} + Be^{-i\omega...
With the new variable, I got:
$$p^2 (p'_y)^{2}=k^2(1+p^2)$$ where ##p'_y## is ##\frac{dp}{dy}##.
I modified the equation so the variable p and dp can be separated from dy. Here what I got:
$$\frac{p}{\sqrt{p^2+1}} dp=k dy$$
I substitute ##p^2+1=u## so I got
$$\sqrt{u}=ky+c_1$$
Back substitution...
$$p=\gamma m v$$
$$F = \frac {md (\gamma v}{dt}$$
$$\int{F dt} = \int{md (\gamma v}$$
$$F t= \gamma mv$$
At this step, I don't know how to make v as explicit function of t, since gamma is a function of v too. Thankss
So using $$L=\frac{mv^2}{2} - \frac{1}{2} m lnx$$ and throwing it into the Euler-L equation I agree with kcrick & OlderDan that we can manipulate this to either $$\frac{d}{dt} m\dot{x} = -\frac{m}{2x}$$ or $$2vdv = -\frac{dx}{x}$$ but I'm not having any epiphanies on how to turn the above into...

In Mary L. Boas' Mathematical Methods in the Physical Science, 3rd ed, on page 17 it goes over absolute convergence, and defines the test for alternating series as follows:
An alternating series converges if the absolute value of the terms decreases steadily to zero, that is, if |an+1| ≤ |an|...

On page 671 Mary Boas has her Theorem III for that chapter. Roughly it tells us that if f(z) -a complex function- is analytic in a region, inside that region f(z) has derivatives of all orders. We can also expand this function in a taylor series.
