MA 36600 LECTURE NOTES: FRIDAY, JANUARY 30 3 Example. As an example, consider the function f ( y ) = r y (1 y ) = r y y 2 = f ( y ) = r (1 2 y ) . The equilibrium solutions are y L = 0 and y L = 1. We have f (0) = r > 0 and f (1) = r < 0. Hence y L = 0 is an unstable equilibrium solution, while y L = 1 is a stable equilibrium solution. Figure 1 contains a plot of f ( y ) vs. y . Philosophically, “most” solutions

### 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.
