Ch 3.5: Repeated Roots; Reduction of Order Recall our 2 nd order linear homogeneous ODE where a , b and c are constants. Assuming an exponential soln leads to characteristic equation: Quadratic formula (or factoring) yields two solutions, r 1 & r 2 : When b 2 – 4 ac = 0, r 1 = r 2 = - b /2 a , since method only gives one solution: 0 = + + cy y b y a 0 ) ( 2 = + + = c br ar e t y rt a ac b b r 2 4 2 - ± - = a t b ce t y 2 / 1 ) ( - =

Second Solution: Multiplying Factor v ( t ) We know that Since y 1 and y 2 are linearly dependent, we generalize this approach and multiply by a function v , and determine conditions for which y 2 is a solution: Then solution a ) ( ) ( solution a ) ( 1 2 1 t cy t y t y = a t b a t b e t v t y e t y 2 / 2 2 / 1 ) ( ) ( try solution a ) ( - - = = a t b a t b a t b a t b a t b a t b a t b e t v a b e t v a b e t v a b e t v t y e t v a b e t v t y e t v t y 2 / 2 2 2 / 2 / 2 / 2 2 / 2 / 2 2 / 2 ) ( 4 ) ( 2 ) ( 2 ) ( ) ( ) ( 2 ) ( ) ( ) ( ) ( - - - - - - - + - - = - = =
