dx/dt = x-2y 

dy/dt = x+4y 

 

this is is a system of differential equations that need to be solved using matrix method. 

Can you please help me with it? Thank you.

\(1)~\text{rewrite the system as $u^\prime = A u,$ where $u(t)=\begin{pmatrix}x(t)\\y(t)\end{pmatrix}$}\\ 2) ~\text{find the eigenvalues $\lambda_{1,2}$ and corresponding eigenvectors $v_{1,2}$ of $A$}\\ 3) ~u(t) = c_1 e^{\lambda_1 t}v_1 + c_2 e^{\lambda_2 t}v_2\)

\(\dfrac{du}{dt} = \begin{pmatrix}\dfrac{dx}{dt}\\\dfrac{dy}{dt}\end{pmatrix} = \begin{pmatrix}1&-2\\1&4\end{pmatrix}\begin{pmatrix}x\\y\end{pmatrix} = A u\)
