Chapter 5 Substitution of this solution into (5.12) and (5.13) yield z = 1 4 ( x 0 +4 x )= c 1 e 8 t + c 3 , y = 1 16 ( x 0 8 x 0 +8 x )= 1 2 ( c 1 e 8 t c 2 e 4 t + c 3 ) . 29. We begin by expressing the system in operator notation ( D λ )[ x ]+ y =0 , 3 x +( D 1)[ y ]=0 . We eliminate y by applying ( D 1) to the Frst equation and subtracting the second equation from it. This gives { ( D 1)( D λ ) ( 3) } [ x ]=0 ± D 2 ( λ +1) D +( λ +3) ² [ x ]=0 . (5.14) Note that since the given system is homogeneous, y ( t ) also satisFes this equation (compare (7) and (8) on page 247 of the text). So, we can investigate solutions x ( t ) only. The auxiliary equation, r 2 ( λ +1) r +( λ +3)=0,hasroots r 1 = ( λ +1) 2 ,r 2 = ( λ +1)+

We consider two cases: i) If λ + 3 < 0, i.e. λ < − 3, then ∆ > ( λ + 1) 2 and the root r 2 > ( λ + 1) + | λ + 1 | 2 = 0 . Therefore, the solution x ( t ) = e r 2 t is unbounded as t → + ∞ . ii) If λ + 3 ≥ 0, i.e. λ ≥ − 3, then ∆ ≤ ( λ + 1) 2 . If ∆ < 0, then a fundamental solution set to (5.14) is e ( λ +1) t/ 2 cos ³ √ − ∆ t 2 ´ , e ( λ +1) t/ 2 sin ³ √ − ∆ t 2 ´ . (5.15) 272...
