Systems of differential equations I: examples, linear stability of zeros 2.1. Examples. Lets look at more examples of linear systems of differential equations in this section. Linear system: Romeo & Juliet Every love affair has its ups and downs over time, ... so it can be modeled by differential equations. When one thinks of love, the classic tale of Romeo and Juliet comes to mind. So lets took at the example of Romeo & Juliet. We begin with the general model: dx dt = ax + by dy dt = cx + dy or d dt x y = a b c d x y = A x y with A = a b c d where a,b,c,d are constants, and x ( t ) = Romeos love/hate for Juliet at time t , (the temperature of Romeos feelings for Juliet) y ( t ) = Juliets love/hate for Romeo at time t , (the temperature of Juliets feelings for Romeo) A negative temperature could be interpreted as hostility, a zero temperature as indifference, and a positive temperature as attraction. x and/or y > 0 love exists x and/or y < 0 love does not exist x and/or y = 0 indifference Date : 20100407. 1 2 JING LI Example 1.
