Linear equations with constant coefficients: homogeneous

Get inspired:

Linear constant coefficient equations can describe several types of mathematical behaviors, including simple periodicity, which we often refer to as harmonic motion. Models of harmonic motion might be most familiar from the spring-mass problems you've seen in physics classes. But the same simple ideas are used to model things as complicated as biological macromolecules like proteins, ribosomes, and viruses.
