## Solving Systems## Solving the Preliminary Example
Your session should have gone like this:
DSolve[{x'[t]== y[t]- x[t]- E^(3t),
What a messy answer! A far cry from the simple pair of functions that I suggested you try to start with. But remember, this isn't just "any old solution" you have found. This is the almighty
It is worth noting here that if you were to use the
For much of what we'll be using systems of differential equations for in this class, it will not be necessary to find an analytic solution, and we'll be perfectly happy to make do with a numerical one. Indeed, in many cases we will have no choice, since the systems in question can't be solved analytically anyway. So let's now move on and see how |
