Find the general solution of the system-→ x = A-→ x without using Laplace transforms and show that as t → ∞ ,-→ x →-→ 0 . Solution: Let-→ x =-→ ξ e rt so that A-→ ξ = r-→ ξ . p ( r ) = det ( A- rI ) =- 5- r 1- 2- 2- r = r 2 + 7 r + 12 = 0. p ( r ) = ( r + 3)( r + 4) = 0 ⇒ r 1 =- 3 , r 2 =- 4 Since we have two distinct eigenvalues we shall have two linearly independent eigen- vectors. ( A- r 1 I )-→ ξ (1) = ( A + 3 I )-→ ξ (1) = 0, ( A- r 2 I )-→ ξ (2) = ( A + 4 I )-→ ξ (2) =-→ 0 .-→ ξ (1) = a 1 a 2 ,-→ ξ (2) = b 1 b 2 ,- 2 1- 2 1 a 1 a 2 = ,- 1 1- 2 2 b 1 b 2 = ⇒ a 2 = 2 a 1 , b 2 = b 1 . Choose a 1 = 1, b 1 = 1. Then-→ x (1) =-→ ξ (1) e r 1 t = 1 2 e- 3 t ,-→ x (2) =-→ ξ (2) e r 2 t = 1 1 e- 4 t is a fundamental set of solutions. General solution-→ x ( t ) = c 1-→ x (1) + c 2-→ x (2) = c 1 e- 3 t 1 2 + c 2 e- 4 t 1 1 ....
