Mon Apr 23: Stability. Almost Linear systems. Phase Diagram. Section 9.2

Review of last week's topics
  Phase diagram.
  Stability and the three pictures: Node, Center, Spiral
  Detecting stability and instability for u'=Au at x=y=0:
   Main Theorem: Re(lambda)<0 ==> asym. stability.
   Stable center picture. Definition of stability.
   Stability at t=-infinity classifies Unstable solutions.
  Maple Demonstration
  Maple phase diagram tools.
  Example
    x' = x + y,
    y' = 1 - x^2
Spiral, saddle, center, node.
  Classification pictures
    Set 1: Stable node, stable center, stable spiral
    Set 2: Unstable node, unstable saddle, unstable spiral
  How to detect saddle, spiral, node, center in the linear case
  using Zeibur's method and examples.
Limitations:
    In the case of a node, we cannot sub-classify as improper
    or proper using the Zeibur method and examples. The finer
    sub-classifications require the exponential matrix e^{At}
    or else a synthetic eigenvalue theorem which calculates the
    sub-classification.
Spiral, saddle, center, node.
  Linearization theory.
  Jacobian.

Algebraic Detection of Linear stability for u'=Au:
   Rule: det(A) not zero of all classifications!
   Re(lambda)<0 ==> asymptotic stability
   Re(lambda)=0 and lambda not zero ==> Center picture
   Stability at t=-infinity classifies Unstable solutions.
   When testing stability, we check t=infinity and t=-infinity.
Nonlinear stability theory u'=f(u)
  When the linearized classification and stability transfers to
  the nonlinear system.
  stability of almost linear [nonlinear] systems,
  phase diagrams,
  classification of nonlinear systems.
Final exam review started.
   Cover today ch8 and some of ch10.
   Review packet distributed on the web.
Final exam details
   Less contact with ch3, ch4, ch6 due their appearance on
   exams 1,2,3.
   Since F2008, there are extra chapters 8,9 on the final.
   A good sample is the F2010 final exam.
   Chapters 5,6,7,10 will undergo changes and spins. For ch10, more
   contact with the second shifting theorem and the Dirac Delta. For
   ch7-ch8, there are additional methods for solving DE, especially
   Cayley-Hamilton-Ziebur, matrix exp(At) and the Laplace resolvent
   for first order systems. For ch5, deeper problems on the topics of
   variation of parameters and undetermined coefficients, resonance,
   and beats.

Tue Apr 24: Nonlinear Stability. Classification. Predator-Prey. Section 9.3

Nonlinear stability
   phase diagrams,
   classification.
   Predator-Prey systems. How to tell which is the predator and which is
     the prey.

   impact on the phase diagram.
   Using DEtools and DEplot in maple to make phase diagrams.
   Exercises 9.1, 9.2.

Wed Apr 25: Nonlinear Mechanical Systems. Section 9.4

Final exam review continued
