Supplementary material on finding particular solutions to systems of linear first order equations Diagonalization Method: Consider the system of n linear first order constant coefficient equations ( 29 y Ay g t ′ = + . If A has n linearly independent eigenvectors ( 29 ( 29 ( 29 1 1 , , , n x x x ××× then form the matrix ( 29 ( 29 ( 29 1 1 , , , n X x x x = ××× where each column is one of the eigenvectors. Making the substitution y Xu = we get ( 29 ( 29 ( 29 ( 29 1 1 1 1 2 1 0 0 0 0 0 0 n Xu AXu g t X Xu X AX u X g t u u X g t λ - - - - = + = + ××× ÷ ××× ÷ = + ÷ × × × ÷ ××× Hence we now have n uncoupled linear first order equations that can be solved by the methods learn in the first differential equations course. Once we have the u’s simply take y Xu = to get the particular solution. Method of Variation of Parameters: Consider the system of n linear first order equations of the form ( 29 ( 29 y A t y g t
