That's a nice constantcoefficient, homogeneous ordinary differential equation. We can get it's characteristic polynomial: \[r^2+2r+2=0\] Then solve for the polynomial's roots (r1 and r2). The fundamental set of solutions will then be of the form \[y_1(t)= e ^{r_1*t} ; y_2(t) = e^{r_2*t} \] If we get a single repeated root r1, the fundamental solution set will be \[y_1(t)= e ^{r_1*t} ; y_2(t) = t*e^{r_1*t} \] Then we write the general solution as \[y(t)=c_1y_1(t) + c_2y_2(t)\] And finally use the initial conditions to solve for c1 and c2.

\[r=\frac{ 2\pm \sqrt{2^{2}4*1*2} }{2*1 }=1 \pm \iota \] solution is \[y=e ^{x}\left[ c1 \cos x+c2 \sin x \right]\] find c1 and c2 from the initial conditions.
