Abstract:

The purpose of the paper is the effective transformation to normal coordinates of the system of linear differential equations Summation from k 1 to n of f sub jkDx sub k y sub jt, j1,...,n where D is the differential operator ddt and the letters x sub k denote the unknown functions of the independent variable t the f sub jkDs and y sub jts are given functions of their arguments, the first set being simply polynomials of any finite degrees with constant coefficients.
