Find the general solution of the fourth order equation: y ( iv ) 8 y = 0 Solution: ( D 4 8 D ) y = D ( D 3 8 I ) y = 0 D 3 8 I = ( D 2 I )( D 2 + 2 D + 4 I ) Hence the DE is D ( D 2 I )( D 2 + 2 D + 4 I ) y = 0 The characteristic eqn. is r ( r 2)( r 2 + 2 r + 4) = 0 and the roots are r 1 = 0 , r 2 = 2 , r 3 = 1 + i √ 3 , r 4 = r 3 ⇒ { 1 , e 2 t , e t cos( √ 3 t ) , e t sin( √ 3 t ) } is a fundamental set of solns.is a fundamental set of solns....
