Re: Some problems with DSolve and NDSolve


Hi,

 the system is singular, Mathematica can't find two explicit
 differential equations for i1'[t] und i2'[t]. Your equations say
 that deltaI'[t]=i2'[t]-i1'[t]
 is given by
  

  2 i1[t] - 2 deltaI'[t] == 80 t E^(-2t), 4 i2[t] + 2 deltaI'[t] == 0

Hope that helps
  Jens
