Hey, Dru, I don't want to steal the thunder from this thread, so this is highly off-topic (as far as it can get, lol) but did you get a new HD and if yes, could you possibly seed the Beyond the Glory file? I'm at 70% and I would really appreciate it.

If I recall correctly, you can use Lagrange points to figure where to place things like telecommunications satellites. You have to figure thetotal number of satellites, and then determine their coverage area based on the distance from the object that serves as the axis and then equidistant from each other.

I could throw this one at my wife - she does crap like this in her head for fun.

I'd help, but, well, I haven't taken a math class since Calculus my senior year in high school. I can't even remember how to add, subtract, multiply and divide without a calculator now.

So are you in Diff. Eq. or Calc 3-4 and when is this due?

I only got up to Calc II and I forgot most of that shit a long time ago.

No kidding. If I needed help with integrals, Chiefsplanet probably wouldn't be the first place I asked.

Damn dude... you went to calculus on us.

WTF?

If all you and your girlfriend have to argue over is calculus problems being solved by members of CP then life must be going quite well.

What the hell happened to the dumbasses who needed help with algebra (NTTAWWT)? Those problems I could do

I'm the only person from my high school to drop calculus twice... I apparently didn't learn the first time.

attacment...??? why doesn't it show up?

I'm guessing that the answer to the first one is the set of functions z and y such that z + y = z'' + y'' everywhere on [0, pi/2] and which satisfy the boundary conditions. One member of that set is

z(t)=y(t)= [ exp( t ) - exp( -t ) ]
/[ exp ( pi/2 ) - exp( -pi/2 ) ]

(That's the hyperbolic sine function multiplied by a normalizing constant.)

My guess was based on generalizing the information on the following page to the case where the integrand depends on two independent functions of t:

My guess is just a guess. I don't know much about the Calculus of Variations and I wasn't especially careful in my calculations. ;)
