It shows a system for which initial conditions must be confined to a with in order to guarantee that trajectories stay within . Meiss’ example, eq. 4.16 and Fig. 4.7, shows why it is necessary to require Lyapunov stability explicitly in the definition of asymptotic stability. It shows a system for which there is a neighborhood of such that and yet the system is not stable. Instead of reiterating these examples, let’s see how the definitions apply to systems we are already familiar with.

This is also implied by the Hartman-Grobman theorem, although the text does not prove that in detail. The proof of theorem 4.21 is a discrete analog of this.) Remark. For nonlinear systems, the condition that have eigenvalues with negative real parts is sufficient but not necessary for asymptotic stabili...
