Non-conservative positional systems - stability. (English) Zbl 0656.70028

The aim of the work is stability analysis of the system ẍ\(=F(x)\), \(x\in {\mathbb{R}}^ 2\), when the F(x) “force” is non-conservative. The necessary and sufficient condition for stability of the origin of the particular system ẍ\(=-xf(x)\), ÿ\(=-yf(x)\), \(x,y\in {\mathbb{R}}\), \(f(0)>0\) is examined and other interesting results are obtained. Some results are generalized for Lagrange’s equations. The paper is theoretical in character. It is addressed to the specialists working in the field of stability analysis of differential equations.
