i need to solve an equation of the form (5) from this webpage http://chaos.phy.ohiou.edu/~thomas/chaos/mackey-glass.html [Broken](adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

first it asks to "derive the corresponding eigenvalue equation"- i presume they mean to derive (6)? if so, i dont know how they get it.

and then they ask for something similar to deriving (7), i have no idea how to proceed... thanks.
