comment Solutions to Differential Equations - real, real repeating, and imaginary (for economics)
Aha, I got it now. Three pieces of the solution that all comprise one complete solution depending on whether or not (u/v)^2 is greater than, less than or equal to 4*w*v. Thank you for your patience with me.

comment Solutions to Differential Equations - real, real repeating, and imaginary (for economics)
Dostre, thank you for your illuminating comment. So if I have made up coefficients and plug those into the three solutions, how does one know which solution to pick? Would I use the magnitude sqrt( sol1 ^ 2 + sol2 ^ 2 + sol3 ^ 2 )? Also, I see that the "t" variable has entered the picture. That's time, right? I just don't want to make any assumptions about anything.
