## Homework Statement

I am trying to follow a paper, https://arxiv.org/pdf/1410.0710v1.pdf, I want to get the results obtained in equations 5 and 6 but can't quite work out how eq 3 has been diagonalized.

## Homework Equations

eq 3

## The Attempt at a Solution

As the system is driven i thought I'd try a solution first and then try to rearrange into an eigenvalue problem. I tried the solution ##x=Ae^{i\omega t}## where ##\omega## is the driving frequency and A some constant, I tried this solution as the system will oscillate at the driving frequency?
