Week 12: Math 216 Mon's Lecture: First Order Linear Systems
Fall 2016
Diego Ayala
EDMA 216
These notes start off Ch. 6 in the textbook. While first order linear systems are a review of earlier chapters, these notes (and this chapter) introduces first order linear systems with NON CONSTANT COEFFICIENTS and with matrices of size N x N (not just 2 x 2). Specifically these notes cover how to transform an ODE of nth order into an n x n matrix.
