- How do you solve systems of differential equations?
- How do you solve homogeneous linear systems with constant coefficients?
- How do you use matrix eigenvalues to solve systems of differential equations?
- What is the superposition principle?
- What is a homogeneous system of differential equations?

This lecture explains the more useful and practical way of solving systems of differential equations. Matrix Algebra, eigenvalues, and eigenvectors are used to solve them. Make sure you have a working knowledge of Linear Algebra for this lecture. A very interesting lecture with very real applications, in which multiple examples are actually solved.
