If y is a function of x and y = ky , then y = y e kx , where y = y , when x = 0 . If you haven’t, the result is easy to check: y = y e kx ⇒ dy dx = d y e kx dx ⇒ dy dx = y d e kx dx ⇒ dy dx = y k e kx ⇒ dy dx = k y e kx ⇒ dy dx = k y Chapter 2 Lecture Notes MAT188H1F Lec03 Burbulla Chapter 2 2.8 Systems of Differential Equations Systems of Linear Equations What we will do is extend the previous result to a linear system of differential equations, which we will be able to solve if the coefficient matrix is diagonalizable. Here’s an example: y 1 = 3 y 1 + y 2 y 2 = 3 y 1 + 5 y 2 What we are solving for are two functions of...
