Course Text

Post by goodwine »

You may download the updated version of the course text. This may contain additional material and corrections that are not in the printed version. Unless otherwise indicated in class or on a homework, all references to page, section and problem numbers are for the printed version.

Post any errors that you find in the printed version of the course text below. To aid in avoiding any repeats, please do it as follows:

In the subject put something like
  • "page xx, line yy"
then in the body of the post put the error. If it's near the bottom of the page put "page xx, line -yy," meaning the error is yy lines up from the bottom. Count equations as lines as well.

Points:
  • typos = 1 homework point
  • substantive errors = 10 homework points
  • really major errors = 10's of homework points
Obviously what constitutes the distinction between these three types of errors is a matter of degree. I'll use my best judgment to allocate points fairly.

Only the first person to post an error will receive any credit, so try not to repeat any others that have already been posted.

Line six states that lines 7 and 8 will show a combination of the two modes of oscillation, but the first mode of oscillation shows a term
sqrt(k/m) and in both terms in lines 7 and 8, there is just sqrt(k)*m. Similarly for the second mode in lines 7 and 8, the m term needs to be in the denominator of the fraction within the square root sign.

On Figure 7.7, the last spring attached to masses n and n-1 should have a spring a damper labeled k_n and b_n, not k_n-1 and b_n-1. Although it's arbitrary, the counter goes from 1 to n on the masses and 1 to n-1 on the springs and dampers, which is confusing.

The text reads:

"(A-lambda_1*I)*xi^1 = 0 <---> [matrix]"

I believe the [matrix] should be the "A" matrix from page 158, line -13 with 1*the identity matrix subtracted from it. However, the [matrix] given on line -6 only has the first term after the subtraction with the remaining values on the diagonal still coming from the original "A" matrix.

The [matrix] in the text is:

0 0 0 0 | 0
0 2 1 0 | 0
0 0 2 1 | 0
0 0 0 2 | 0

while I believe it should be:

In the first matrix the 1 is the first value in the column but when multiplied by lambda_n it is shown in the second matrix as being the last entry in the column.
