© 2008 Zachary S Tseng D -2 - 28 Exercises D-2.2 : Find all the critical point(s) of each nonlinear system given. Then determine the type and stability of each critical point. 1. x ′ = xy + 3 y y ′ = xy − 3 x 2. x ′ = x 2 − 3 xy + 2 x y ′ = x + y − 1 3. x ′ = x 2 + y 2 − 13 y ′ = xy − 2 x − 2 y + 4 4. x ′ = 2 − x 2 y 2 y ′ = x 2 y 2 5. x ′ = x 2 y + 3 xy – 10 y y ′ = xy − 4 x Answer D-2.2 : 1. Critical points are (0, 0) and (−3, 3). (0, 0) is a stable center, and (−3, 3) is an unstable saddle point. 2. Critical points are (0, 1) and (1/4, 3/4). (0, 1) is an unstable saddle point, and (1/4, 3/4) is an unstable spiral point. 3. Critical points are (2, 3), (2, −3), (3, 2), and (−3, 2). (2, 3) is an unstable saddle point, (2, −3) is an unstable saddle point, (3, 2) is an unstable node, and (−3, 2) is an asymptotically stable node. 4. Critical points are (1, 1), (1, −1), (−1, 1), and (−1, −1). (1, 1) is an asymptotically stable spiral point, (1, −1) and (−1, 1) both are unstable saddle points, and (−1, −1) is an unstable spiral point. 5. Critical points are (0, 0), (2, 4), and (−5, 4). (0, 0) is an unstable saddle point, (2, 4) is an unstable node, and (−5, 4) is an asymptotically stable node.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
