In other words, the general solution of the diﬀerential equation y ′ (t) = Ay (t) is given by y (t) = a1 e−t 2 cos(t) − sin(t) cos(t) + 2 sin(t) + a2 e−t cos(t) sin(t) for suitable constants a1 , a2 . The initial condition y (0) = 1 1 implies a1 = 1 and a2 = −1. Thus, y (t) = e−t cos(t) − 3 sin(t) . cos(t) − sin(t) Problem 10: We consider the diﬀerential equation y ′ (t) = −3 2 y (t) −1 −1 with initial condition y (0) = 1 . −2 We begin by computing the eigenvalues of the coeﬃcient matrix A: 0 = det λ + 3 −2 =...
