This interesting paper is well written and organized. The paper deals with the systems of Lorenz-type. By the Lorenz-type system the author means a dynamical system generated by the vector field \(X(x)\) in an invariant subdomain \(U\subset\mathbb{R}^3\) satisfying several additional conditions on the types of equilibrium points and their invariant manifolds and as well as on the properties of the corresponding Poincaré map. If \(\dot x=X(x)\) is a Lorenz-type system, the author investigates the nonautonomous perturbed system \(\dot x=X(x)+h(x,t)\equiv Y(x,t)\) with small function \(h(x,t)\). For such system, the following result is proved: Let \(\dot x=Y(x,t)\) be a system defining a singularly hyperbolic system. Then, there exist no stable trajectories. To prove this result, the author has introduced the notion of singularly hyperbolic flow and as well as the notion of the singular hyperbolicity for nonautonomous systems.
