Title

A Qualitative Analysis of X ̇=Ax+b

Abstract

For a dynamical system x ̇=Ax+b, where A is constant real n×n matrix and b is an n-vector there is special interest in the existence of a constant asymptotically stable attractor trajectory in positive orthant of Rn. For certain patterns of signs of entries (+, -, or 0) in A and b, such a trajectory always must exist, regardless of the magnitudes of those entries. This paper describes all such patterns in terms of digraphs. Applications to a nonlinear systems and ecosystem models are also mentioned. © 1988.
