SPRING SEMESTER 2015 Structural Engineering, Mechanics and Materials

NAME

MATHEMATICS

Consider a square 3 × 3 real number matrix A, whose eigenvalue problem is given as

A = λI, (1)

One can find its eigenvalues by solving the following characteristic polynomial equation,

where

1 2

I1 (A) = A11 + A22 + A33 , I2 (A) = I1 (A) − I1 (A2 ) , and I3 = det(A) .

2

Show that the following matrix equation holds

Hint:

Multiply the equation (1) with the second order identity matrix I.

Define an integration as

Z `p

dy

I(y(x)) = 1 + (y 0 (x))2 dx, where y 0 =

0 dx

where y(x) is a smooth real function defined in [0, `]. Obviously, the value of integration depends

on the selection of the function y(x) (In fact, it is a functional, but you do not need that knowledge

to solve the problem).

Let Z `p

I(y(x) + w(x)) = 1 + (y 0 (x) + w0 (x))2 dx ,

(1) For given functions y(x) and w(x), calculate the following quantity by taking the limit on ,

δI := lim I(y(x) + w(x)) − I(y(x))

→0

(2) Define a real function: f () := I(y(x) + w(x)). Expand it into the Taylor series of at = 0

for the first three terms, i.e.
