Unformatted text preview: , D [ x ] + y ( t ) + ( D 2 + D + 1) [ y ] = 0 . By multiplying the rst equation above by D and the second by ( D 2 + D + 1) and adding the resulting equations, we can eliminate the function y ( t ). Thus, we have n ( D 2 + D + 1 ) 2 D 2 o [ x ] = 0 ( D 2 + D + 1 ) D ( D 2 + D + 1 ) + D [ x ] = 0 ( D 2 + 1 ) ( D + 1) 2 [ x ] = 0 . This last equation is a fourth order linear diFerential equation with constant coecients whose associated auxiliary equation has roots r = 1, 1, i , and i . Therefore, the solution to this diFerential equation is x ( t ) = c 1 e t + c 2 te t + c 3 cos t + c 4 sin t 313...
