# Homogeneous System of Three Coupled, First-Order, Linear Differential Equations

Requires a Wolfram Notebook System

Interact on desktop, mobile and cloud with the free Wolfram Player or other Wolfram Language products.

This Demonstration calculates the eigenvalues and eigenvectors of a linear homogeneous system and finds the constant coefficients of the system for a particular solution. The sliders let you vary the initial conditions.
