Unformatted text preview: ) = t f ( s, n ( s )) ds. Homogeneous equations with constant coecients irst we will review the basic concepts linear/nonlinear equations, homogeneous/nonhomogeneous equations. ollow these steps to approach an initial value problem ay + by + cy = 0 , y ( t ) = y , y ( t ) = y . Step 1: Solve the characteristic equation ar 2 + br + c = 0. Assume that it has two diFerent real roots r 1 and r 2 . (More complicated situations will be discussed in later sections.) Step 2: The solution will be y = c 1 e r 1 t + c 2 e r 2 t , where c 1 = y y r 2 r 1 r 2 e r 1 t c 2 = y r 1 y r 1 r 2 e r 2 t 1 Examples 5. ( t ) = k =2 2 k +2 k ! ( t ) k .
