MAT244--Lectures & Home Assignments / Re: question about a homo matrix

We can compute the eigenvalues first
Let $A=\begin{pmatrix}-4~~~~7\\1 ~~~-4 \end{pmatrix}$
Setting up $det\begin{pmatrix} -4-\lambda ~~~7 \\ 1 ~~~-4-\lambda \end{pmatrix} = 0$

then we find out $(-4-\lambda)^2 -7=0$

By solving the equation, we get the eigenvalue $r_1=-4+\sqrt{7}$ and $r_2=-4-\sqrt{7}$.

Now, we need to plug the eigenvalue back to the matrix.
For $r_1=-4+\sqrt{7}$, the corresponding eigenvector is $\begin{pmatrix} \sqrt{7}\\1 \end{pmatrix}$.

For $r_2=-4-\sqrt{7}$, the corresponding eigenvector is $\begin{pmatrix} -\sqrt{7}\\1 \end{pmatrix}$

Thus, the general solution for the system of equation is
 $x'= ce^{(-4+\sqrt{7})t}*\begin{pmatrix} \sqrt{7}\\1 \end{pmatrix}+ce^{(-4-\sqrt{7})t}*\begin{pmatrix} -\sqrt{7}\\1 \end{pmatrix}$
