1. Reduction of Order • Repeated Roots of the Characteristic Equation

2. So far… • We’ve Learned How To Solve Second Order Linear Homogeneous ODEs with Constant Coefficients • Characteristic Equation • We’ve seen distinct real roots, complex conjugate roots

3. Characteristic Equation Gives the Characteristic Equation Case 1: If roots are real and distinct, and General solution: Case 2: If roots are complex, and General solution:
