Knill Homework: section 9.1: 54 and section 9.2: 12,18,2226,34 COMPLEX LINEAR 1D CASE. x = x for = a + ib has solution x ( t ) = e at e ibt x (0) and length  x ( t )  = e at  x (0)  . THE HARMONIC OSCILLATOR: The system x = cx has the solution x ( t ) = cos( ct ) x (0) + sin( ct ) x (0) / c . DERIVATION. x = y, y = x and in matrix form as x y = 1 x y = A x y and because A has eigenvalues i , the new coordinates move as a ( t ) = e i ct a (0) and b ( t ) = e i ct b (0). Writing this in the original coordinates x ( t ) y ( t ) = S a ( t ) b ( t ) and fixing the constants gives x ( t ) , y ( t ). EXAMPLE. THE SPINNER. The spinner is a rigid body attached to a spring aligned around the zaxes. The body can rotate around the zaxes and bounce up and down. The two motions are coupled in the following way: when the spinner winds up in the same direction as the spring, the spring gets tightened and the body gets a lift. If the spinner winds up to the other direction, the spring becomes more relaxed and the body is lowered. Instead of reducing thespring becomes more relaxed and the body is lowered....
