Unformatted text preview: and then analyze the eigenvalues of the Jacobian. If the Jacobian is a Hurwitz matrix, then the steady state of the nonlinear system is stable; if at least one of the eigenvalues of the Jacobian is on the right half of the complex plane, then the steady state is unstable; if the Jacobian has some of its eigenvalues on the imaginary axis and the other eigenvalues on the left half of the complex plane, then linearization fails to determine the stability of the steady state. For more information, you are referred to Chapter 7 in the textbook as well as the Appendix....
