Comments:
Ryan's paper was the most correct; however it did not flow very well, some
additional comments would help the math out. [A]'s paper was fine until
the end of his part (a) where things got rather confusing. [B]'s was
also fine but for the fact that it seemed as though he was assuming what
he was trying to prove at the beginning of part (b). [C]'s paper
stumped both of us. He essentially says that the equation he has in part
(a) is the equivalent of an equation in the book, therefore it is linear.
His part (b) is also jumbled, it may be correct, however the two lines of
math did not provide enough information to follow clearly.
INSTRUCTOR'S COMMENT: As the grader pointed out, I didn't word part (b)
very well. I should have asked whether the equation Ku = 0 is
homogeneous, since it's not clear what "homogeneous operator" means.
