## Solving Systems## Solving the Preliminary Example
We're now going to use
You may note that both We won't be going into detail here on what the analytic techniques are for
solving systems of differential equations—that discussion belongs in your lecture classes. (Two common methods are
Several laboratories ago you first asked
?DSolve
Notice that the second part of the description refers to a "list of differential equations". This is just another name for a system of differential equations. It looks like it won't be necessary for us to learn a new command for solving systems. DSolve should work just fine. Based on the above, the syntax we need to solve our example system should be the following:
DSolve[{x'[t]== y[t]- x[t]- E^(3t),
Jump to Now let's go and see what you should have gotten. |
