I have this problem:

How con I solve the follwing differntial equations system

   y' == A.y?

The system describes a mechanical system where
y is a vector or matrix of the dimension n x 1,

   y={y1[x],...yn[x],y1'[x],...,yn'[x]}

y' is a vector or matrix of the dimension n x 1,

   y'={y1'[x],...yn'[x],y1''[x],...,yn''[x]}

A is a (block)matrix of the dimension n x n

   | Zeromatrix[n/2] IdentityMatrix[n/2] |
A =   |    |
   | lowerleft[n/2 x n/2]   lowerright[n/2 x n/2]   |

I want a solution for y1[t] to yn[t] in a symbolic expression.
