Control system question

  1. Apr 9, 2012 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    I have the following matrix:
    A=[0 -1; 0 -1]

    and i need to calculate: exp(At) in several ways, 2 of them are using the reverse Laplace transform and using: I + Ʃ(A^kt^k)/k!

    i have tried to start the series but i am getting an expression that i can't say which series it is,
    and when i try with Laplace i get the one of the matrix expressions is a step function..

    i will apreaciate the help...

    What are you getting for

    You are dividing by the wrong thing. Divide by
    instead of

    is the deteminante..
    in oreder to reverse 2*2 matrix i do this:
    [a b ; c d]^-1 = [d -b; -c a] * 1/det
