Chapter 5 We use the second equation to express z in terms of x and y . z = x + D [ y ] . (5.10) Substituting this expression into the other two equations, we obtain ( D 1)[ x ] 2 y +( x + D [ y ]) = 0 , 4 x +4 y D 5)[ x + D [ y ]] = 0 ( D 2)[ x ]+( D 2)[ y ]) = 0 , ( D 1)[ x D 2 5 D +4)[ y ]=0 . (5.11) Now we eliminate x by multiplying the Frst equation by ( D 1), the second equation – by ( D 2), and adding the results. This yields ± ( D 1)( D 2) + ( D 2)( D 2 5 D +4) ² [ y ± ( D 2)( D 2 4 D +3) ² [ y ⇒{ ( D 2)( D 1)( D 3) } [ y . The roots of the characteristic equation, ( r 2)( r 1)( r 3) = 0, are r =1 , 2, and 3. Thus, a general solution for y is y = c 1 e t + c 2 e 2 t + c 3 e 3 t . With h := x + y , the Frst equation in (5.11) can be written in the form
