RolyPoly

Solve the initial problem \[y_1''=2y_1+y_2+y_1'+y_2'\]\[y_2''=-5y_1+2y_2+5y_1'-y_2'\]\(y_1(0)=y_2(0)=y_1'(0)=4\), \(y_2'(0)=-4\)

    Note that I put this under linear algebra.

    I think it has something to do with eigenvalues and eigenvectors

    let y'1 = u, and y'2 = v, you get 4x4 system.

    let that matrix be A, you get X' = AX <-- this is logistic equation ... I must admit ... to me, this is not a nice question.

    the solution is \[ X = Se^{\Lambda t}S^{-1}X(0)\]

    @sirm3d Using the laplace transform is not as pretty as @experimentX 's cleaner linear algebra solution. You're not guaranteed invertible functions in the frequency domain.
