We have seen numerous techniques for working with an IVP which consists of a single 1st-order ODE and one initial condition. In this topic, we will look at how we can use the same techniques for solving a system of n 1st-order ODEs with n initial values.
Useful background for this topic includes:
- Bradie, Section 7.8, Systems of Equations and Higher-Order Equations, p.623.
- Mathews, Section 9.7, Systems of Differential Equations, p.518.
