In this chapter we study linear systems of differential equations and see how the general theory specializes to give us a much more complete description of the flow. As would be expected, the material here relies on many topics from linear algebra and so a good background in this subject will be helpful. (Appendix C has some background material linear algebra and matrix analysis.)
