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. Ciao -erk-
