Eigenvalues and Linear Phase Portraits
This shows the phase portrait of a
linear differential system along with a plot of the eigenvalues of the system matrix in the complex plane.

Automatic Animation
SNAPSHOTS
DETAILS
Sliders allow manipulation of the matrix entries over
. By viewing simultaneously the phase portrait and the eigenvalue plot, one can easily and directly associate phase portrait bifurcations with changes in the character of the eigenvalues.
