Try:

DSolve[D[x[t], {t, 6}] - x[t] == 0, x, t]

The general complex solution given by a linear combination of exponential functions having the characteristic polynomial's roots times t as the exponents.

What Mathematica gives you is the complete real solution. But what if you want the complete complex solution instead? I already tried TrigToExp, which did nothing.


Thanks
