On the question of existence of a Lyapunov polynomial function. (Russian) Zbl 0698.34045
The following theorem is proved: for every positive integer m there exist homogeneous polynomials P(x,y), Q(x,y) of the third degree such that the derivative with respect to the system $$\dot x=P(x,y)$$, $$\dot y=Q(x,y)$$ of any arbitrary homogeneous polynomial of degree m is not negative definite.
