Since the basis vectors are linearly independent this is equivalent to the matrix equation
The simplest case is when the eigenvalues of

For the case of ,

surprise since is not hyperbolic.
For the case of ,
. Notice that this can be zero
even if is hyperbolic. In other words, certain nonlinear systems with hyperbolic linear parts
may have resonant nonlinear terms that cannot be eliminated by normal form transformations.
Compare this to the statement of the Hartman-Grobman theorem, which assures us that the
dynamics of a nonlinear system in a neighborhood of a hyperbolic equilibrium point are
topologically conjugate to those of the corresponding linearized system. This difference
reflects the fact that normal form transformations use diffeomorphisms to eliminate the
nonlinear terms. This is a smaller class of transformations than the homeomorphisms used by
the Hartman-Grobman theorem.
The non-hyperbolic Hartman-Grobman theorem from center manifold theory tells us that the
dynamics of a nonlinear system are topologically conjugate to the linearized dynamics on the
stable and unstable manifold together with the nonlinear dynamics on the center manifold.
Thus we are particularly interested to apply normal form transformations to systems with
nonhyperbolic linear parts.
