, which implies that is real.
33. From Prob. x Hence we must have ,
Ax x x Ax . Hence
x x x x x x , since the eigenvalues are real. Therefore
Given that , we must have x x x .

3. Eq. states that the Wronskian satisfies the first order linear ODE The general solution is
in which is an arbitrary constant. Let X and X be matrices representing two sets
of fundamental solutions. It follows that
Hence X X . Note that 4. First note that As shown in Prob.
