I've got all the matrices in state-space form, but how do I solve them? I tried integrating the equations one by one, but it seems like I end up with more variables than equations.

Thanks for any help, I'm completely lost.

Posting the equations of your problem would help. In case it helps, remember that you have 2 extra equations from w1=y1', w2=y2'
