It is interesting to note the size of the eigenvalues (which are quite large in absolute value). so solutions move toward or away from the equilibria very quickly. 9. (a) The equilibrium points are (0, O), (0, 25), (100, 0) and (75, 12.5). We can classify these equilibrium points by computing the Jacobian matrix 100 - 2x - 2y -2x —y 150 - x — 12y at each of the equilibrium points and computing the eigenvalues. At (75, 12.5), the Jaco- bian matrix is —'75 -150 —12.5 —75 and the eigenvalues are approximame ~32 and — l 18 so this point is a sink. At (0. 0) the Jacobian matrix is 100 O 0 [50 and the eigenvalues are 100 and ISO. so this point is a source. At (0. 25) the Jacobian matrix is 50 0 —25 —150 and the eigenvalues are 50 and —lSO. so this point is a saddle. Finally, at (100, 0) the Jacobian matrix is —100 -200 O 50 and the eigenvalues are — 100 and 50, so this point is a saddle. ...

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
