  1. Perko, Section 2.7, problem 1 Write the system

    \dot{x}_1=x_1+6x_2+x_1x_2,\qquad \dot{x}_2=4x_1+3x_2-x_1^2


    in the form








    with $\lambda_1<0$, $\lambda_2>0$ and $G(y)$ is quadratic in $y_1$ and $y_2$.

  2. Perko, Section 2.7, problem 2 Find the first three successive approximations $u^{(1)}(t,a)$, $u^{(2)}(t,a)$, and $u^{(3)}(t,a)$ for

    \dot{x}_1=-x_1,\qquad \dot{x}_2=x_2+x_1^2


    and use $u^{(3)}(t,a)$ to approximate $S$ near the origin. Also approximate the unstable manifold $U$ near the origin for this system. Note that $u^{(2)}(t,a)=u^{(3)}(t,a)$ and therefore $u^{(j+1)}(t,a)=u^{(j)}(t,a)$ for $j\geq 2$. Thus $u(t,a)=u^{(2)}(t,a)$ which gives the exact function defining $S$.

  3. Perko, Section 2.7, problem 3 Solve the system in Problem 2 and show that $S$ and $U$ are given by





    Sketch $S$, $U$, $E^s$ and $E^u$.

  4. Repeat problem 2 and 3 above using Taylor series for $h(x)$ to define $S=\{(x_1,x_2)|x_2=h(x)\}$ and matching coefficients to solve for $h(x)$.
  5. Perko, Section 2.9, problem 2(a)(b) Determine the stability of the equilibrium points of the system (1) with $f(x)$ given by
