(1) The goal is to find all functions x : R → R 2 satisfying this equation. Use the simplest method you know: Euler’s method. Approximate dx dt with 1 h ( x ( t + h )- x ( t )) and rewrite (1) as 1 h ( x ( t + h )- x ( t )) = Ax ( t ) . This gives x ( t + h ) = x ( t ) + hAx ( t ) = [ I + hA ] x ( t ) , (2) where I = parenleftbigg 1 1 parenrightbigg is the identity matrix. For t = 0 (2) gives x ( h ) = ( I + hA ) x (0) . 1 For t = h we get: x (2 h )( I + hA ) x ( h ) = ( I + hA )( I + hA ) x (0) = ( I + hA ) 2 x (0) . Repeating this process n times gives: x ( nh ) = ( I + hA )( I + hA )( I + hA ) ··· ( I + hA ) x (0) = ( I + hA ) n x (0) (3) Thus, “solving” (1) is simply applying the linear transformation (...
