    Optimization Problem with Exponential Form (double terms)

    Hello, Could anybody help me with this optimization problem? I want to minimize sum(s=1,S) a_s * exp(b_s*x_s) + c_s * exp(d_s*x_s) subject to the constraint: sum(s=1,S) x_s = A I am supposed to find x_s which makes the statement minimized. a_s, b_s, c_s, d_s, and A values are constants in...

    Exponential equation

    Check whether I solved the equation correctly for real numbers : x^{\frac{1}{x} } =-1 \; , x-integer and by domain x\neq 0. By natural logarithm to both sides : \frac{1}{x} \ln (x)=\ln(-1)=i\pi . x=e^{ix\pi }=\cos (x\pi )+i\sin(x\pi)=\cos(x\pi)=(-1)^{x}. x=(-1)^{x} \; and if solution...

    Exponential function

    Just graphed the function f(x)=x^x using a graphing calculator . Does the function makes sense for x=-1 ? By the graphing calculator the negative values of x are not included. For x=-1 , f(x)=-1 . Why negative values are avoided ?

    Request for help with tricky Riccati DE with exponential terms.

    Hi all, I am developing a model that requires me to derive the solution of a rather tricky Riccati DE, and I am having a devil of a time with it and am beginning to wonder if there is even a closed-form solution. Anyhow, the equation is \frac{dE}{dt} = cB_{t} + bE_{t} + aE_{t}^{2}...

    Exponential growth question for the mathematicians who love family trees

    Here's something for the mathematicians that are also genealogists, since those subjects get intertwined a lot. I put this under Number Theory because of the exponential growth that comes with family trees. Anyway, I'm working on my mum's ancestry - one of her 16 great-great-grandparents was...

    Directional derivative of exponential of a function

    I have a trouble of a directional derivative of a function : for a function f and a tangent vector field X of a manifold M, we have X(f)=∇_{X}f=<∇f,X> From this above formula, is it true that : X(e^{-f})=<∇e^{-f},X>=<e^{-f}∇(-f),X>=-e^{-f}<∇f,X> If it not...

    Problem with an exponential equation

    Hi, I need help with this exponential equation. Normally, I would use 3^x as a substitution, but the 3^(-x) is kinda confusing me. How am I supposed to solve this? Thanks. 9*3^x+3^(-x)=10 So I figured it out: 1/3^x = 3^(-x)

    One exponential equation

    Equation 81^\sin^2 x+81^\cos^2 x=30 can easy be solved by substitution 81^\sin^2 x=t What about equation 81^\sin2x+81^\cos2x=30? I think it doesn't have real solutions.

    Posterior Distribution from Beta Density with Exponential Prior

    Let $X_1,...,X_n$ be iid random variables with a common density function given by: $f(x|\theta)=\theta x^{\theta-1}$ for $x\in[0,1]$ and $\theta>0$. Put a prior distribution on $\theta$ which is $EXP(2)$, where $2$ is the mean of the exponential distribution. Obtain the posterior...

    Exponential identity

    0 is the additive identity; i.e. 0+R=R 1 is the multiplicative identity; i.e. 1*R=R 0 is an "exponential inverse"; i.e. R^0=1 for R≠0 1 is an "exponential identity"; i.e. R^1=R 2 is a "universal identity"; i.e. 2+2=2*2=2^2

    exponential growth

    In 1923, koalas were introduced to Kangaroo Island. In 1996, the population was 5000. By 2005, the population had grown to 27000, prompting a debate on how to control their growth and avoid koalas dying of starvation. Assuming exponential growth, find the continuous rate of growth of the koala...
