Homework Help: Finding jacobian matrix

  1. May 16, 2010 #1
    1. Find the jacobian matrix of the following two equations
    x'=-16x+3y
    y' = 18x-19y


    2. Relevant equations



    Here is my attempt

    I know how a jacobian matrix is derived so is this correct?

    -16 3
    18 -19

    The above is meant to be a matrix.

    That is correct. Notice that the original function is linear and that the Jacobian matrix is the same as the matrix that represents the original linear function.
