Find a fundamental matrix for the system x'(t)=Ax(t); where
5 -3 -2
A = 8 -5 -4
-4 3 3
The second part of the question is to find eAt
I know that you have to find the 3 eigenvectors and then the 'general solution' without putting the constants into the fundamental matrix. I'm having a super hard time finding the last eigen vector.
The Attempt at a Solution
I found the eigenvalues to be (λ-1)3 and when I completed for the first λ=1 I found that v1=[1 4 0] and v2= [1 0 2]. I tried to generalize to find v3 by using (A-λI)v3=v2 but I keep getting an invalid system.
Any help would be great.
