Specific help is encouraged. The instructor will also be able to pick and choose different levels of difficulty when assigning homework problems. And since students may occasionally need hints to work some problems, this manual will allow the instructor to take a quick peek to see how the students can be helped.

It is absolutely forbidden for the students to have access to this manual. Please do not give students solutions from this manual.

Posting these solutions on the Internet will result in widespread distribution of the solutions and will ultimately result in the decrease of the usefulness of the text. Equinoxes on Earth General Systematically observing the sunrise , people discovered that it occurs between two extreme locations at the horizon and eventually noted the midpoint between the two.

Later it was realized that this happens on a day when the durations of the day and the night are practically equal and the word "equinox" comes from Latin Aequus, meaning "equal", and Nox, meaning "night".

In the northern hemisphere, the vernal equinox March conventionally marks the beginning of spring in most cultures and is considered the start of the New Year in the Assyrian calendar , Hindu and the Persian calendar or Iranian calendars as Nowruz means new day , while the autumnal equinox September marks the beginning of autumn. From Earth's perspective, the Sun appears to move along the ecliptic red , which is tilted compared to the celestial equator white.

For the same reason, this is also the time when the Sun rises for an observer at one of Earth's rotational poles and sets at the other; for a brief period, both North and South Poles are in daylight. This is possible because atmospheric refraction "lofts" the Sun's apparent disk above its true position in the sky. In other words, the equinoxes are the only times when the subsolar point is on the equator, meaning that the Sun is exactly overhead at a point on the equatorial line.

The subsolar point crosses the equator moving northward at the March equinox and southward at the September equinox. Date When Julius Caesar established the Julian calendar in 45 BC, he set 25 March as the date of the spring equinox; this was already the starting day of the year in the Persian and Indian calendars. Because the Julian year is longer than the tropical year by about The Pope wanted to continue to conform with the edicts of the Council of Nicaea in AD concerning the date of Easter , which means he wanted to move the vernal equinox to the date on which it fell at that time 21 March is the day allocated to it in the Easter table of the Julian calendar , and to maintain it at around that date in the future, which he achieved by reducing the number of leap years from to 97 every years.

This in turn raised the possibility that it could fall on 22 March, and thus Easter Day might theoretically commence before the equinox. The astronomers chose the appropriate number of days to omit so that the equinox would swing from 19 to 21 March but never fall on 22 March within Europe.

Modern dates The dates of the equinoxes change progressively during the leap-year cycle, because the Gregorian calendar year is not commensurate with the period of the Earth's revolution about the Sun. It is only after a complete Gregorian leap-year cycle of years that the seasons commence at approximately the same time. In the 21st century the earliest March equinox will be 19 March , while the latest was 21 March The earliest September equinox will be 21 September while the latest was 23 September Universal Time.

These are the historically universal and still most widely used terms for the equinoxes, but are potentially confusing because in the southern hemisphere the vernal equinox does not occur in spring and the autumnal equinox does not occur in autumn. Most of this book is devoted to finding analytic methods for exploring the motion of a system. In several cases we will be able to find exact analytic solutions, but it should be noted that these exactly solvable problems, while very important, cover only a small set of real problems.

It is therefore important to have methods other than searching for analytic solutions to deal with dynamical systems. Phase space provides one method for finding qualitative information about the solutions. Another approach is numerical. Thus it is always subject to numerical solution given an initial configuration, at least up until such point that some singularity in the velocity function is reached. The motion can just end at such a point, and several possible phase curves can terminate at that point.

This is not to say that nu- Integrating the motion, for a damped harmonic oscillator.

Sometimes uncontrolled approximate solutions lead to surprisingly large errors. These can be found in any text on numerical methods. PHASE SPACE 27 Nonetheless, numerical solutions are often the only way to handle a real problem, and there has been extensive development of techniques for efficiently and accurately handling the problem, which is essentially one of solving a system of first order ordinary differential equations. Many qualitative features of the motion can be stated in terms of the phase curve.

At other points, the system does not stay put, but there may be sets of states which flow into each other, such as the elliptical orbit for the undamped harmonic oscillator. These are called invariant sets of states.

In a first order dynamical system14 , the fixed points divide the line into intervals which are invariant sets. Even though a first-order system is smaller than any Newtonian system, it is worthwhile discussing briefly the phase flow there. But this kind of situation is somewhat artificial, and such a system is structually unstable.

Thus the simple zero in the velocity function is structurally stable.Vector methods are developed in the first two chapters and are used throughout the book. The denition in 1. Intuitively, at each time q t is a separate variable, though varying q at only one point makes q hard to interpret. We will discuss this for nearly circular orbits in other potentials in section 3. We have not yet made use of the fact that U only depends on the magnitude of r. Day arcs of the Sun Main article: Sun path Some of the statements above can be made clearer by picturing the day arc i.

In general, then, stability in each subspace around the xed point 0 depends on the sign of the real part of the eigenvalue. This situation cannot handled by Lagranges equations.
