Q7 TUT 5102

**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} = (2 + x)( y - x),\\

&\frac{dy}{dt} = (4 - x)( y + x).

\end{aligned}\right.$$

**Chonghan Ma**:

(a)

Set (2+x)(y-x)=0 and (4-x)(y+x)=0

Then we have critical points (0,0), (4,4), (-2,2)

(b)

J = \begin{bmatrix}-2-2x+y & 2+x \\4-2y-2x & 4-x \end{bmatrix}

Linear systems are shown with each critical point:

J(0,0) = \begin{bmatrix}-2 & 2 \\4 & 4 \end{bmatrix}

J(-2,2) = \begin{bmatrix}4 & 0 \\6 & 6 \end{bmatrix}

J(4,4) = \begin{bmatrix}-6 & 6 \\-8 & 0 \end{bmatrix}

(c)

Eigenvalues are computed by det(A - tI)= 0

So that

At (0,0): t=1±√17}

Critical point is a saddle point and it is unstable

At (-2,2): t= 4 and 6

Critical point is an unstable node

At ((4,4): t=-3±√9 i

Critical point is a stable spiral point

For this question, I draw the graph my hand.

If there is any problem, tell me as soon as possible.
