(10 points) Let A be a 5 × 5 matrix with eigenvalues ± 3 i, 1 , 1 , 1 . (a) Suppose that the eigenvalue λ =1 has defect 1 . Does the equation x = A x have (nonzero) solutions of one of the following forms? ( v 1 t + v 2 ) e t parenleftBig v 1 t 2 2 + v 2 t + v 3 parenrightBig e t parenleftBig v 1 t 3 6 + v 2 t 2 2 + v 3 t + v 4 parenrightBig e t ( v 1 t + v 2 ) sin (3 t ) v 1 e t cos (3 t ) Circle those that are solutions (for appropriate choices of the coefficients v 1 , v 2 , v 3 , v 4 ). (b) Now, consider the differential equation x = A x + ( 3 t 2 , 0 , cos ( t ) , 0 , - 1 ) T . Write down a particular solution x p with undetermined coefficients. Problem 2.
