Re: Homogeneous linear ODEs with Constant Coefficients

I think the reason behind it is the fact that thus it's the easiest way to get a polynomial equation what we can solve easily.

If you would (for example) substitute then you would get a goniometric equation which is in most cases more difficult to solve then polynomial equations.
