(a) Find the equilibrium solutions of the following differential equations. You should find three y 0 = y 3 - 6 y 2 + 11 y - 6 . (b) Draw the phase line diagram. (c) Graph the equilibrium solutions and some other solutions. You should clearly indicate the behaviour of the solution curves as t → ∞ . 2. Suppose that size N if a populations satisfies the following differential equation: dN dt = 5 N 2 1 + N 2 - 2 N. (a) Find all equilibrium points.
