168 Economic Dynamics Figure 4.16. Hence det( A λ I ) = λ 2 + 4 λ + 3 = ( λ + 3)( λ + 1) = 0, which leads to roots λ = r =− 3 and λ = s =− 1. Using these values for the eigenvalues, the eigen- vectors are v r = ± 1 1 ² and v s = ± 1 1 ² which gives the general solution x = c 1 e 3 t ± 1 1 ² + c 2 e t ± 1 1 ² or x ( t ) = c 1 e 3 t + c 2 e t y ( t ) =− c 1 e 3 t + c 2 e t The solution is illustrated in Fgure 4.17, 8 where the solution paths are revealed by the direction Feld, indicating quite clearly that the origin is a stable node.
