Set of differential equations modeling biological system

Im trying to describe a moleculatr biological system using some differntial equations, However, differntial equations is not my strong side.

I'm thinking my equation set is quite trivial but i just cant seem to manage it. for 3 distinct groups im trying to calculate $V_1(t)$, expressed by:

$V_1(t)=V_2'(t) \,k1$

$V_2(t)=V_1'(t) \,k_2+V_3'(t) \,k_3$

$V_3(t)=V_2'(t)\,k_4$

for $k_1,k_2,k_3,k_4$ some constants.

every input will be really helpfull. thanks.

Do you know how to solve $v= k \, v'$? –  leonbloy Jan 21 '13 at 0:26

By writing the functions a single column vector ${\bf v}_(t)=[v_1(t),v_2(t),v_3(t)]^T$ you can rewrite your system of three linear differential equations as a single matricial one:
$${\bf v} = {\bf A} \frac{d{\bf v}}{dt}$$
where $${\bf A}=\begin{pmatrix} 0 & k_1 &0 \\ k_2 & 0 & k_3\\ 0 & k_4 & 0 \end{pmatrix}$$
