A geometric approach to Burgers' Riccati equation
Gallagher, Gerald Lee
MetadataShow full item record
The directrix approach, which gives powerful insight to the geometric structure of solutions of the general Riccati equation, is developed. Burgers' Riccati equation is derived, and conclusions are drawn utilizing the directrix approach concerning the boundedness properties of solutions of this equation with certain restrictions on parameter values. Closed form solutions are developed for Burgers' Riccati equation for certain parameter values. A method is produced to obtain the verti' cal assymptote for unbounded solutions of Burgers' Riccati equation with certain restrictions on parameter values. Conclusions drawn from the application of the directrix method to Burgers' equation are verified. A research bibliography for Riccati' s Equation is included.
