Question: curious about dsolve for matrix equations

I was pleased to observe that in Maple 2018 one can use dsolve to get solutions of matrix ODEs, e.g., X'(t)=A(t) X(t). The command is the obvious dsolve({diff(X(t),t)=A(t).X(t), X(0)=Xo}).

I was then surprised that Maple balked at the commands dsolve({diff(X(t),t)=A(t).X(t), X(0)=Xo},numeric) and dsolve({diff(X(t),t)=A(t).X(t), X(0)=Xo},numeric,{x(t),y(t)}).  Is there some error on my part?

Please Wait...
