You have known_vector = matrix dot unknown_vector. ( ...well, I guess Y0(x) is
BesselY[0,x] ...)

So you have to do Inverse[matrix] dot known_vector to get the unknown_vector,
the 3rd component of which is your solution. You replace w t by another
variable, and plot. Since you want it logarithmic, you have to think about what
to do with negative numbers ...

All this has nothing to do with Mathematica, btw.
