Find and classify all the equilibrium solutions, Mathematics

Find and classify all the equilibrium solutions to the subsequent differential equation.

y' = y2 - y - 6

Solution

First, get the equilibrium solutions. It is generally easy adequate to do.

y2 - y - 6 = (y - 3) ( y + 2) = 0

Thus, it looks as we've found two equilibrium solutions. y = -2 and y = 3 both are equilibrium solutions. There is the sketch of several integral curves for this differential equation is given below. A sketch of the integral curves or direction fields can simplify the method of classifying the equilibrium solutions.

By this sketch it appears that solutions which start "near" y = -2 all move indirections of it as t rises and so y = -2 is an asymptotically stable equilibrium solution and solutions which start "near" y = 3 all move away from it as t raises and so y = 3 is an unstable equilibrium solution.

This next illustration will introduce the third classification which we can give to equilibrium solutions.
