Chapter 4 This equation has associated homogeneous equation x x 2 x = 0. The roots of the associated auxiliary equation, r 2 r 2 = 0, are r = 2 and r = 1. Therefore, a general solution to this equation is x h ( t ) = c 1 e 2 t + c 2 e t . For the variation of parameters method, we let x p ( t ) = v 1 ( t ) x 1 ( t ) + v 2 ( t ) x 2 ( t ) , where x 1 ( t ) = e 2 t and x 2 ( t ) = e t . Thus, x 1 ( t ) = 2 e 2 t and x 2 ( t ) = e t . This means that we have to solve the system e 2 t v 1 + e t v 2 = 0 , 2 e 2 t v 1 e t v 2 = e 3 t . Adding these two equations yields 3 e 2 t v 1 = e 3 t v 1 = 1 3 e t v 1 ( t ) = 1 3 e t . Substututing v 1 into the first equation, we get 1 3 e 3 t + e t v 2 = 0 v 2 = 1 3 e 4 t v 2 ( t ) = 1 12 e 4 t . Therefore, x p ( t ) = 1 3 e t e 2 t 1 12 e 4 t e t = 1 4 e 3 t , and a general solution is

Thus a general solution to the homogeneous equation is y h ( t ) = c 1 e t + c 2 te t . For the variation of parameters method, we let y p ( t ) = v 1 ( t ) y 1 ( t ) + v 2 ( t ) y 2 ( t ) , where y 1 ( t ) = e t and y 2 ( t ) = te t . 214...

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
