Homogeneous equation : ay 00 + by + cy = 0 The form of the general solution depends on the solution of the characteristic eqn ar 2 + br + c = 0. (1) two real roots r 1 ,r 2 : y = c 1 e r 1 t + c 2 e r 2 t (2) one real root r : y = c 1 e rt + c 2 te rt (3) complex roots i : y = c 1 e t cos t + c 2 e t sin t ex) 3.4.11, 3.5.11 2.Reduction of order. Find y 2 when y 00 + py + qy = 0 and a solution y 1 are given. Set y 2 = vy 1 . Look at the eqns (27)- (30) on p.171. Note that (30) is actually 1st order equation and usually this will be separable eqn. ex)3.5.25 3. Non-homogeneous equation : ay 00 + by + cy = g ( t ) (1) general solution y = y h + Y (2) Method of undetermined coefficients : From g ( t ), guess the possible form of Y . (i)Consider the sum of terms of all possible derivative of g with undetermined coefficients. (ii)If this contains some homogeneous solution, multiply t or t 2 ....
