Zubov's method is a technique for computing the basin of attraction for a set of ordinary differential equations (a dynamical system). The domain of attraction is the set , where is the solution to a partial differential equation known as the Zubov equation. Zubov's method can be used in a number of ways.
Zubov's theorem states that:
- If is an ordinary differential equation in with , a set containing 0 in its interior is the domain of attraction of zero if and only if there exist continuous functions such that:
- , for , on
- for every there exist such that , if
- for or
If f is continuously differentiable, then the differential equation has at most one continuously differentiable solution satisfying .
