Homework 3 - Due October 6,2017
Das & Ferbel refers to the textbook Introduction to Nuclear and
Particle Physics, 2nd
Edition, by A. Das and T. Ferbel
Special topic: None
Entire Chapter 5: Read the topics not covered in
class on your own.
1) Das & Ferbel, Problem 5.3. (If you don't have a semilog
graph paper, use google or click
here to get one.)
2) Das & Ferbel, Problem 5.4.
3) Das & Ferbel, Problem 5.5.
4) Das & Ferbel, Problem 5.9.
5) Das & Ferbel, Problem 5.11. Use equations 5.31 with
λ3 = 0. Try solutions which are the sums of
constants times decreasing exponentials and possibly a constant, and check that the
differential equations and the initial conditions are satisfied. Also
check that your solutions have reasonable behavior for very large times.
