When you are solving this DE, I assume you are solving for ...
This is first order linear, so the Integrating Factor is .
Multiplying both sides by the Integrating Factor gives
I dont quite know how to begin with this question.
where , and is a continuous complex function of real variable.
a) Derive the variation of constants formula for finding a particular solution of (1).
b) Using this formula, find the general solution of (1) with
I tried to write z as (x+iy) and find a solution using variable of constants(parameters) method, but have come to no avail, i missed the lecture which covered this but even with borrowing someone elses notes i cant seem to work it out, neither can most people ive spoken to, how would i go about doing this question?
