For an example problem to solve in an engineering class I was given the following systems and told to find the steady states of each and the eigenvalues for each steady state. 1) $\displaystyle dx/dt = x(12yx)$ $\displaystyle dy/dt = yx$ 2) $\displaystyle x' = x(10xy)$ $\displaystyle y' = y(302xy)$ I know that for steady states I need to solve for when the derivatives are both equal to zero. For both systems I know that x=y=0 is a trivial solution. I found another solution to be x=y=1/3 for System #1 and x=20, y=10 for System #2. My problem is, I remember how to find eigenvalues of matrices from Lin. Alg. but I'm not sure how to get these equations into a form where I can solve for the eigenvalues. How would I go about finding the eigenvalues for these systems?
