Q7 TUT 0101

(1/1)

Victor Ivrii:
(a) Determine all critical points of the given system of equations.

(b) Find the corresponding linear system near each critical point.

(c) Find the eigenvalues of each linear system. What conclusions can you then draw about the nonlinear system?

(d)  Draw a phase portrait of the nonlinear system to confirm your conclusions, or to extend them in those cases where the linear system does not provide definite information about the nonlinear system.
\left\{\begin{aligned} &\frac{dx}{dt} = x + x^2 + y^2, \\ &\frac{dy}{dt} = y - xy. \end{aligned}\right.

Chonghan Ma:
(a)
Set x’ = 0 and y’=0
Then we have critical points (0,0), (-1,0)
(b)
J = \begin{bmatrix}2x+1 & 2y \\-y & 1-x \end{bmatrix}
Linear systems are shown with each critical point:
J(0,0) =  \begin{bmatrix}1 & 0 \\0 & 1 \end{bmatrix}
J(-1,0) =  \begin{bmatrix}-1 & 0 \\0 & 2 \end{bmatrix}
(c)
Eigenvalues are computed by det(A - tI)= 0
So that
At (0,0): t=1
Critical point is an unstable proper node or spiral point
At (-1,0): t=-1 and 2
Critical point is an unstable saddle point
