Abstract

This thesis is the result of an extension of an investigative paper submitted in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the Degree of Bachelor of Science in Mathematics by Raymond L. Scott, May 1956. Scott discussed systems of linear differential equations with constant coefficients containing four equations with four variables. We shall extend this theory to systems of n equations in n variables,

Very often in applied mathematics, physics, chemistry, one is faced with the problem of solving systems of linear differential equations. Finding solutions of systems of linear differential equations often proved to be very difficult. Many methods have been developed in connection with this problem. A rather general method for solving systems of ordinary linear differential equations with constant coefficients with developed in this paper.

The problem will be discussed in the following manner* Chapter II will be devoted to developing the theory Relative to the nature and the operation with linear differential operators. Chapter III will be devoted to developing the theory of the operators method relative to general systems of ordinary linear differential equations with constant coefficients in a certain manner. Chapter IV will be devoted to applications to above methods to special systems. Chapter V will be devoted to a summary of the results of this investigation of the above-stated problem.
