Solutions to selected exercises can be found in [Lebl], starting from page 303.
• 3.4.6: a) Find the general solution of x01 = 2x1 , x02 = 3x2 using the eigenvalue method
(first write the system in the form ~x0 = A~x). b) Solve the system by solving each
equation and verify you get the same general solution.
• 3.4.7: Find the general solution of x01 = 3x1 + x2 , x02 = 2x1 + 4x2 using the eigenvalue
method.
• 3.4.8: Find the general solution of x01 = x1 − 2x2 , x02 = 2x1 + x2 using the eigenvalue
method. Do not use complex exponentials in your solution.
