Unformatted text preview: t ? EXAMPLE. Solve the initial value problem y 00-2 y-3 y = 0, y (0) = , y (0) = 3. Then nd so that the solution approaches 0 as t . What happens if we are just a tiny tiny bit o when we start this system, that is, we start not with y (0) = but with y (0) = + ? Assume we continue to hit the desired y (0) on the nose. What if we get a repeated root? How do we know we have all the solutions? What if the roots are complex numbers? HOMEWORK: SECTION 3.1...
