Name: ________________________________ Problem 1: (20 points) Consider the linear system: ! x t ( ) = Ax t ( ) ; x 0 ( ) = x 0 (1) where A = 0 0 1 0 ! 1 0 0 1 0 " # \$ \$ \$ % & a) (10 points) What are the eigenvalues of A ? b) Compute the transition matrix for system (1). a) Note that a simple transformation (switching the 2 nd and 3 rd states) results in an upper triangular matrix: P = 1 0 0 0 0 1 0 1 0 ! " # # # \$ % & & & A ( PAP ) 1 = 1 0 0 0 0 1 0 1 0 ! " # # # \$ % & & & 0 0 1 0 ) 1 0 0 1 0 ! " # # # \$ % & & & 1 0 0 0 0 1 0 1 0 ! " # # # \$ % & & & = 1 0 0 0 0 1 0 1 0 ! " # # # \$ % & & & 0 1 0 0 0 ) 1 0 0 1 ! " # # # \$ % & & & = 0 1 0 0 0 1 0 0 ) 1 ! " # # # \$ % & & & Thus, the eigenvalues are ! = 0, 0, " 1 { } . b) The transformation used in part a could also be used here, but the computation of e A t using the Laplace transform method is straightforward: e A t = L ! 1 s I ! A ( ) ! 1 { }
