For part (d) of problem 1 of Hw#2, every instance of should be replaced by , so the wording should be changed to read: "Consider the case where and . Solve for , the normalized output of the oscillator, with initial conditions ."

If you've already solved it using instead of you will get equal credit (it is just a little bit more complex).

To solve this problem, you can use the "method of undetermined coefficients" (see, for example, http://www.efunda.com/math/ode/linearode_undeterminedcoeff.cfm) to solve for the steady-state frequency response solution. Then you can add to it a homogeneous solution that cancels the initial condition from the steady state so that the given initial conditions are satisfied. i.e., find from .
