However, we can find the dimension of stable manifold (if exists) with the help of centre manifold theorem.
(b) If [[alpha].sub.2] < [delta] then [[lambda].sub.1] > 0 and [[lambda].sub.2] < 0; then [U.sup.*.sub.0] is an unstable saddle point, the unstable manifold of which is [E.sup.u] = <(1; 0)> and the stable manifold is [E.sup.s] = <(0;1)>.
For standard definitions of attracting fixed point, saddle point, stable manifold, and related notions see [10].
(b) if [a.sub.0] + [a.sub.1] = 2, then the zero equilibrium of (131) is globally asymptotically stable within its basin of attraction which is the region below the global stable manifold [W.sup.s](E), E(1, 1) in the Northeast ordering.
By (H2), there exists an n-dimensional stable manifold near the point ([phi](0), 0) on the phase plane ([MATHEMATICAL EXPRESSION NOT REPRODUCIBLE IN ASCII]), which is in some region [G.sub.1] of vector function [[PI].sub.0]y.
We will combine the nonlinear equations with information about the local dynamics to trace out the global stable manifold of the low-inflation steady state.
which indicates that the stable manifold of P is four-dimensional.
Thus, if the initial size of the two populations is on the basin of attraction of [E.sub.1] or [E.sub.2] then one population will survive and the other population will become extinct; and if the initial population is on the stable manifold of [E.sub.3] then both populations will co-exist at the saddle [E.sub.3].
Then F has the 1-dimensional local stable manifold [W.sup.s.sub.loc]([P.sub.+]) at the point [P.sub.+].
On the other hand, the past history of the deformation is determined by the (perturbed) stable manifold. Both manifolds constitute the homoclinic tangle, a signature of chaos, and the configuration of the manifolds determines the material transports in the chaotic region, which will be discussed throughout this work.
Given z [elements of] [lambda] we define the [epsilon]-local stable manifold through z by:
