Unformatted text preview: system, for any initial value not equal to the Fxed point, then the system will move away from it. Consider example 2.4, a simple continuous priceadjustment demand and supply model with the differential equation dp dt = α ( a − c ) + α ( b − d ) p α > ±or a solution (a Fxed point, an equilibrium point) to exist in the positive quadrant then a > c and so the intercept is positive. With conventional shaped demand and supply curves, then b < 0 and d > 0, respectively, so that the slope of the differential equation is negative. The situation is illustrated in Fgure 2.16(a). Figure 2.16....
