Solutions starting at all 3. Solution of the ODEs is based on the analysis of the algebraic equations . The characteristic equation is , the two equations reduce to One solution is x , with a single root . Setting . The corresponding eigenvector is . A second linearly independent solution is obtained by finding a generalized eigenvector. We therefore analyze the system . The equations reduce to the single equation , and a second linearly independent solution is Let . We obtain x Dropping the last term, the general solution is x ________________________________________________________________________ page 414 —————————————————————————— CHAPTER 7. —— 4.
