Determine its singular (equilibrium) points and classify each, insofar as possible, using linearization. In particular, classify each equilibrium point as stable or not stable. For each equilibrium point, determine in addition if it is a focus, node, or saddle, if you have the information to do so. If one cannot determine the type from the linearization, say so, and indicate, if possible, the alternatives. No sketch is required. 2. Consider the linear system parenleftbigg x ′ y ′ parenrightbigg = bracketleftbigg − 4 4 1 − 4 bracketrightbiggparenleftbigg x y parenrightbigg . If A is the matrix of coefficients, det( A − λI ) = ( λ + 2)( λ + 6). Classify the singular point at the origin. (Is it stable or unstable, a focus, node, saddle, etc.?) Sketch the phase portrait near the origin. The sketch can be rough but it should have the rightSketch the phase portrait near the origin....
