Node (autonomous system)
This article needs attention from an expert in Mathematics.(February 2009)
The behaviour of a linear autonomous system around a critical point is a node if the following conditions are satisfied:
Each path converges to the or away from the critical point (dependent of the underlying equation) as (or as ). Furthermore, each path approaches the point asymptotically through a line.
