    This lecture picks up right where the last one left off. More example problems of systems of differential equations are solved using Matrix Algebra techniques by finding eigenvalues and eigenvectors. These problem solutions do not go as smoothly as most; counterexamples to the ordinary are discussed, such as with repeated eigenvalues and complex eigenvalues.
