Applying IBP on \(I_2\) \[I_2=x(1x^{50})^{101}_0^1+5050\displaystyle \int_0^1 x^{50}(1x^{50})^{100}\,\mathrm{d}x\] \[=0+5050\displaystyle \int_0^1(\color{green}{1}(\color{green}{1} x^{50}))(1x^{50})^{100}\,\mathrm{d}x\]
\[=5050\left(\displaystyle \int_0^1(1x^{50})^{100}\,\mathrm{d}x\displaystyle \int_0^1(1x^{50})^{101}\,\mathrm{d}x\right)\]
\[\implies I_2=5050(I_1I_2)\]
Rearranging we get:
\[\dfrac{5050I_1}{I_2}=\boxed{5051}\] – Rishabh Cool · 9 months, 4 weeks ago

Both methods are same. The proof of Gamma functional equation uses IBP, so both methods are essentially the same.Log in to reply
Note : \(\mathbf{Beta}\) Function is used which is as follows just to recall :
\(\large \int_{0}^{1} x^{m1}(1x)^{n1}=\beta(m,n)=\frac{\Gamma(m)\Gamma(n)}{\Gamma(m+n)}=\frac{(m1)!(n1)!}{(m+n1)!}\) with m,n > 0.
Let \(1x^{50}=t\)
\(50x^{49}dx=dt\)
\(x^{49} = (1t)^{\frac{49}{50}}\) & \(dx=\frac{dt}{50(1t)^{\frac{49}{50}}}\)
The integral is changed to :
\(I_1=\frac{1}{50}\int_{1}^{0} t^{100}(1t)^{\frac{49}{50}}dt\)
\(50I_1=\int_{0}^{1} t^{1011} (1t)^{\frac{1}{50}1}dt\)
\(50I_1=\beta(101,\frac{1}{50}=\frac{\Gamma(101)\Gamma(\frac{1}{50})}{\Gamma(101+\frac{1}{50})}\)
Similarly the denominator just differs in case of the exponent of t, denote the denominator by \(I_2\) so we have ,
\(50I_2=\beta(102,\frac{1}{50})=\frac{\Gamma(102)\Gamma(\frac{1}{50})}{\Gamma(102+\frac{1}{50})}\)
\(50I_2=\frac{101\Gamma(101)\Gamma(\frac{1}{50})}{\Gamma([1]+[101+\frac{1}{50}])}\)
Since we have \(\Gamma(n+1)=n\Gamma(n)\) so ,
\(50I_2= \frac{101}{101+\frac{1}{50}}\frac{\Gamma(101)\Gamma(\frac{1}{50})}{\Gamma(101+\frac{1}{50})}\)
\(50I_2=\frac{101.50}{5051}.50I_1\)
\(5051=\frac{5050 . I_1}{I_2}\)
Therefore ,
\(\large \frac{5050.\int_{0}^{1}(1x^{50})^{100}dx}{\int_{0}^{1}(1x^{50})^{101}dx} = 5051\) \(\large \boxed{Proved}\) – Aditya Sharma · 10 months ago

Using \(\int_a^b f(x)dx=\int_a^b f(a+bx) dx\) and adding both integrals and simplifying gives:
\[I=\dfrac{\pi}{2}\left(\int_0^{\pi}\dfrac{dx}{1+(\cos \alpha)( \sin x)}\right)\] Using \(\sin x=\dfrac{2\tan^2 \frac x2}{1+\tan^2\frac x2}\) and substituting \(\tan^2 \frac x2=t\) such that \(\dfrac{(1+\tan^2 \frac x2 )dx}{2}=dt\) .
\[I={\pi}\int_{0}^{\infty}\left(\dfrac{dt}{1+t^2+2\cos \alpha t}\right)\]
\[I={\pi}\int_{0}^{\infty}\left(\dfrac{dt}{(t+\cos \alpha )^2+\sin^2 \alpha }\right)\]
Using \(\int \dfrac{dx}{x^2+a^2}=\frac 1a(\tan^{1} \frac xa)\) .
\[=\dfrac{\pi}{\sin \alpha}\left(\tan^{1}\left(\dfrac{t+\cos \alpha }{\sin \alpha}\right)\right)_0^{\infty}\]
\[=\dfrac{\pi}{\sin \alpha}(\dfrac{\pi}{2}\underbrace{\tan^{1} \left(\cot \alpha\right)}_{\dfrac{\pi}{2}\alpha})\]

There is a quick technique to solve the summations of this kind..... Slash of the first term and write down the other terms as it is in deno. and multiply by the number of remaining terms in the denominator (here 'p') now multiply this result with (1) and add a constant C so the result till now is : \(\\ S=C\dfrac{1}{p(x+1)(x+2)\cdots(x+p)} \\ \)
When \(x=1, \ S=\dfrac{1}{(p+1)!} \ also \ S=C\dfrac{1}{p(p+1)!} \\ \) This gives \(C=\dfrac{1}{p.p!}\)
In both the integrals \(\dfrac{1}{p^2(p1)!}S\) is equivalent to \(C(C\dfrac{1}{p(x+1)(x+2)\cdots(x+p)}) \\ \) which is equivalent to \(\dfrac{x!}{p(x+p)!}\)
Now the integral in numerator turns into
\(\displaystyle \int_0^{2016} dx\) and that in denominator turns into
\(\displaystyle \int_0^{2} (x)(x1)dx\)
Thus, \(\varphi=3024 \) and answer is 4. – Samarth Agarwal · 9 months, 4 weeks ago

\(\mathbf{Problem}\) \(\mathbf{26}\)
Let \(f(x)\) be a function satisfying \(f(0)=2,f'(0)=3,f''(x)=f(x)\) , then prove that :
\(f(4) = \frac{5(e^81)}{2e^4}\) – Aditya Sharma · 9 months, 4 weeks ago
Log in to reply
\( f'(x) = b + 2cx + 3dx^2 + 4ex^3 + 5fx^4 +6gx^5 + 7hx^6 + ....... \).
\( f''(x) = 2c + 6dx + 12ex^2 + 20fx^3 + 30gx^4 + 42hx^5 + ....... \).
Since , \( f(0) = 2 \implies a=2 \) and \( f'(0) = 3 \implies b=3 \).
On comparing coefficient of \( x^n \) in equation \( f(x) = f''(x) \)
\( c=1 , d= \frac{1}{2} , e =\frac{1}{12} , f=\frac{1}{40} , g=\frac{1}{360} , h =\frac{1}{1680} \)
We have , \( f(4) = 2 + 12 + 16 +\frac{4^3}{2}+\frac{4^4}{12} +\frac{4^5}{40} + \frac{4^6}{360} \).
Or \( f(4) = \displaystyle \sum_{n=1}^\infty \frac{ 4^n ( (1)^n + 5 ) }{ 8(n1)!} = \displaystyle \sum_{n=1}^\infty \frac{ 4^n (1)^n }{ 8(n1)!} + \frac{5}{2} \displaystyle \sum_{n=1}^\infty \frac{ 4^{(n1)} }{ (n1)!} = \frac{1}{8} \frac{4}{e^4} + \frac{5}{2} e^4 = \boxed{ \frac{ 5e^8  1}{2e^4} } \) – Sachin Vishwakarma · 9 months, 4 weeks ago

The problem is incorrect. If a polynomial \(f(x)\) satisfies \(f''(x) = f(x)\), then, even without solving the differential equation, the number of roots of \(f(x)\) equals the number of roots of \(f''(x)\), which is a contradiction. So it must be stated that \(f\) is a function, not a polynomial function.Log in to reply
– Vighnesh Shenoy · 9 months, 2 weeks ago
This is correct ^. In reality the function is exponential.Log in to reply
\(f''(x)=f(x)\implies 2f'(x)f''(x)=2f(x)f'(x)\implies d({f'(x)}^2) = d({f(x)}^2)\)
\(\implies {f'(x)}^2 = {f(x)}^2 + C\)
Utilising the conditions for \(f(0) = 2 , f'(0) = 3\) we get \(C=5\)
We have \(f'(x) = \sqrt{5+{f(x)}^2}\)
\(\int dx = \int \frac{d({f(x)})}{\sqrt{5+{f(x)}^2}}\)
\(x + C_1 = logf(x) + \sqrt{5+{f(x)}^2}\)
again by the conditions putting x=0 we get ,
\(C_1=log5\)
So, \(x=log\frac{f(x) + \sqrt{5+{f(x)}^2}}{5}\) ..................................... (1)
Observe that , \(log\frac{f(x) + \sqrt{5+{f(x)}^2}}{5} = log\frac{5}{\sqrt{5+{f(x)}^2}f(x)}\)
From (1) ,
\(5e^x = f(x) + \sqrt{5+{f(x)}^2}\) & similarly \(5e^{x}=\sqrt{5+{f(x)}^2}f(x)\)
Extracting f(x) we get ,
\(2f(x) = 5(e^xe^{x})\implies f(x) = \frac{5(e^xe^{x})}{2}\)
\(\large\boxed{ f(4) = \frac{5(e^4e^{4})}{2} = \frac{5(e^81)}{2e^4}}\) – Aditya Sharma · 9 months, 4 weeks ago

Problem 31
If \( I_{1} = \displaystyle \int_0^{\frac{\pi}{2} } f( \sin 2x) \sin x \mathrm{d}x \) and \( I_{2} = \displaystyle \int_0^{\frac{\pi}{4} } f( \cos 2x) \cos x \mathrm{d}x \) , then find \( \frac{I_{1}}{I_{2}}\) ? – Sachin Vishwakarma · 9 months, 4 weeks ago
Log in to reply
Using the property,
\( \displaystyle \int_{0}^{2a}f(x)dx = \int_{0}^{a}f(x)+f(2ax)dx \)
\( I_{1} = \displaystyle \int_{0}^{\dfrac{\pi}{4}} f(\sin 2x)(\cos x + \sin x ) dx \)
In \( I_{2} \) ,
Use \( \displaystyle \int_{a}^{b}f(x)dx = \int_{a}^{b} f(a+bx)dx \)
\( \therefore I_{2} = \displaystyle \int_{0}^{\dfrac{\pi}{4}} f(\sin 2x)\cos\left( \dfrac{\pi}{4}  x\right) dx \)
\( \therefore I_{2} = \dfrac{1}{\sqrt{2}}\cdot \displaystyle \int_{0}^{\dfrac{\pi}{4}} f(\sin 2x)(\cos x + \sin x) dx = \dfrac{I_{1}}{\sqrt{2}} \)
\( \dfrac{I_{1}}{I_{2}} = \sqrt{2} \) – Vighnesh Shenoy · 9 months, 4 weeks ago

\( I_{n} = \displaystyle \int_{0}^{\infty} \dfrac{ \displaystyle \sum_{k=1}^{n} \left(\arctan\left(\dfrac{(k+1)x}{k}\right) \arctan(x) \right)}{x}dx \)
Consider the integral,
\( J(a) = \displaystyle \int_{0}^{\infty} \dfrac{ \arctan(ax)  \arctan(x) }{x} dx \)
\( \dfrac{dJ}{da} = \displaystyle \int_{0}^{\infty} \dfrac{\partial}{\partial a} \dfrac{\arctan(ax)\arctan(x)}{x} dx \)
\( \dfrac{dJ}{da} = \displaystyle \int_{0}^{\infty} \dfrac{1}{1+(ax)^{2}}dx \)
\( \dfrac{dJ}{da} = \dfrac{\pi}{2a} \)
\( \therefore J = \dfrac{\pi \ln(a)}{2} + c \)
Since, \( J(1)= 0 , \rightarrow c = 0 \)
\( \therefore J(a) = \dfrac{\pi \ln(a)}{2} \)
\( I_{n} = \displaystyle \sum_{k=1}^{n} J\left(\dfrac{k+1}{k}\right) = \dfrac{\pi \ln(n+1)}{2} \)
\( I_{20}  I_{6} = \dfrac{\pi}{2} \left( \ln(21)  \ln(7) \right) = \dfrac{\pi \ln(3)}{2} \)
I can differentiate under the integral when the function is continuous, and differentiable. As for why your answer is incorrect,
After substituting \( x = \dfrac{1}{t} \)
\( \arctan\left(\dfrac{(k+1)x}{k}\right) = \arctan\left(\dfrac{(k+1)}{kt}\right) = \dfrac{\pi}{2}  \arctan\left(\dfrac{kt}{(k+1)}\right) \ne \dfrac{\pi}{2}  \arctan\left(\dfrac{(k+1)x}{k}\right) \) – Vighnesh Shenoy · 9 months, 3 weeks ago

PROBLEM 36
Let \(f(x)\) be a differentiable function and \(f'(x)=f(x) , f'(x) =g(x) \)
Let \(h(x)=[f(x)]^2+[g(x)]^2 \) and h(5)=11 find h(10) – Samarth Agarwal · 9 months, 2 weeks ago
Log in to reply
Integrate both sides to get: \[f(x)=Ce^{x}\] \[\implies g(x)=f'(x)=Ce^{x}\] \[\implies h(x)=2C^2e^{2x}\]
\[\dfrac{h(10)}{h(5)}=\dfrac{e^{20}}{e^{10}}=e^{10}\]
\[\implies h(10)=\boxed{11e^{10}}\]

PROBLEM 35:
Time for an easy problem!
Find the radius and coordinates of center of curvature of the curve
\[y=(4xx^23)^{\frac{1}{2}}\]
at the points \(x=1.2\) and \(x=2\). Also what is this curve? – Akshay Yadav · 9 months, 2 weeks ago

It is a semi circle above x axis as y is always positive with radius 1 unit and center (2,0)Log in to reply

This is because it just requires simple co ordinate geometryLog in to reply
– Samarth Agarwal · 9 months, 2 weeks ago
I think that question is more based on co ordinate geometry as curve is just a semi circleLog in to reply
PROBLEM 34:
Find the minimum value of the integral \(\displaystyle \int_0^{\pi} \left(x  \pi a  \frac {b}{\pi}\cos x\right)^2 \ dx \) – Nihar Mahajan · 9 months, 3 weeks ago
Log in to reply
\(\displaystyle \int_0^{\pi} \left(x^2+\pi^2a^2+\frac{b^2}{\pi^2}\cos^2 (x)2\pi ax+2ab\cos (x)\frac{2b}{\pi}\cos (x) \right) dx\)
From that you get the expression
\(\frac{3b^2+24b+6{\pi}^4a^26{\pi}^4a+2{\pi}^4}{6{\pi}}\)
Let this equals to \(y\) and then we use partial differentiation,
From that we get \(a=\frac{1}{2}\) and \(b=4\).
Place the values back and then you'll get the required minimum value of the integral as,
\[\boxed{\frac{\pi^3}{12}\frac{8}{\pi}}\] – Akshay Yadav · 9 months, 2 weeks ago

Problem no : 32
\( f(x) = 3e^{x} + \dfrac{1}{1+x^{2}} \)
Let \( g(x) \) be the inverse of \( f(x) \).
Compute,
\( \displaystyle \int_{3}^{3e  \frac{1}{2}}g(x+1)dx \) – Vighnesh Shenoy · 9 months, 4 weeks ago
Log in to reply
Substitute, \( g(x) = t \rightarrow f(g(x)) = f(t) \)
But since, \( f(x) \) and \( g(x) \) are inverses of each other, \( f(g(x))= x \)
\( \therefore x = f(t) \rightarrow dx = f'(t)dt \)
\( \therefore I = \displaystyle \int_{0}^{1} tf'(t)dt \)
Integrating by parts,
\( I = \left[tf(t)\right]_{0}^{1}  \displaystyle \int_{0}^{1} f(t)dt \)
\( I = 3e + \dfrac{1}{2}  \displaystyle \int_{0}^{1} 3e^{t} + \dfrac{1}{1+t^{2}}dt = 3e + \dfrac{1}{2}  \left[ 3e^{t} + \tan^{1}(x) \right]_{0}^{1} \)
\( \therefore I = 3e + \dfrac{1}{2} 3e  \dfrac{\pi}{4} + 3 + 0 = \dfrac{7}{2}  \dfrac{\pi}{4} = \dfrac{14\pi}{4} \) – Vighnesh Shenoy · 9 months, 3 weeks ago
