Chapter 2 part B real part and it is also invariant under the action of . Similarly,
the direct sum
. and are invariant. is We can consider the action of in each subspace by considering restricted operators.

diagonal. For example, can always be brought to Jordan canonical form. A system is linearly stable if all its solutions are bounded as
always bounded.
Lemma 2.9. If

such that matrix and . If then is , the stable space of , then there are constants .
Consequently, Remark. This result is very reasonable. From [1], each component of the solution will be
proportional to
for some eigenvalue , and by hypothesis
is chosen so that
for each such eigenvalue
. The maximum power of that appears in any component

sufficiently large, the exponentially decaying terms must dominate the powers...
