### Second-order differential equations: how to solve.

Free ebook http://tinyurl.com/EngMathYTA lecture on how to solve second order, ordinary differential equations with constant coefficients and a zero right-hand side (homogeneous). The practical analysis mostly involves examining the roots of the associated quadratic equation (characteristic equation).I motivate the study, mention existence and uniqueness of solutions, and derive / justify some forms of the solution.
