Unformatted text preview: imaginary part y ( t ) approaches yp exponentially and with oscillations Case 4: ξ = 0 (undamped): [Stable] repeated roots with an imaginary part and no real part Oscillations with constant amplitude , indicate a system at the limit of stability Case 5: ξ < 0 (unstable): [Unstable] All values of the damping factor, ξ, that are less than zero yield a solution that has a positive real part e + t will grow without bound and the process will display diverging...
