In class we saw the example x ± =-x y ± = y. The ﬁrst quadrant of the phase portrait (also in page 40 of the textbook) is reminiscent of the curves deﬁned by xy = c for c > . (a) Write down the solution of the system and use this to explain why the solution curves, with initial conditions in the ﬁrst quadrant, look like the curves mentioned above. (b) Now consider the system x ± =-ax y ± = by where a, b > , a ± = b . Write down the solution of this system and derive an equation satisﬁed by the solution curves. (c) Sketch the phase portrait of the system in (b). How does it differ from the one in (a)? Distinguish the cases a > b and a < b ....
