### Unbounded solution but bounded Euler discretization

Is there an ordinary differential equation in $\mathbb{R}^d$ induced by a gradient vector field with unbounded solutions, for which the difference equations obtained by using the forward Euler method ...

### Basin of attraction comparative statics* using local energy functions?

Let $\dot{\boldsymbol{x}}=\boldsymbol{F}(\boldsymbol{x};p)$ be an autonomous dynamical system defined on $[a,b]^n$ ($-\infty<a<B<\infty)$; $p\in\mathbb{R}$ is some fixed parameter. Suppose ...

### Analytically characterizing basins of attraction boundaries and sizes

While I understand that doing the above is not possible in general, I would like to know more about how to proceed when it is possible. That is, what are the common methods people use to analytically ...

### Reduced $H_{\infty}$ problem for nD systems

Let $G(z)$ denote the (rational not necessarily square and unstable) transfer function of an nD system, where $z=(z_{2},...,z_{n})$, of a discrete spatial-temporal recurrence Givone-Roesser type ...

### Linear programming robustness to input perturbations

I'm running a linear program whose parametrization depends on the output of a neural network. I was wondering if there exist results on how robust linear programs are towards perturbations in their ...

### Clarification on the proof of Lyapunov-Razumikhin asymptotic stability theorem for delayed differential equations

this is my first question here, hope I am in the right place :) Recently I have been looking at the proof of theorem 4.2 on Razumikhin stability for RFDEs in the book by Jack Hale and Lunel Verduyn: ...

### Stable periodic orbits for three equal masses

For three equal masses in any number of dimensions (this might not be important, but 2D or 3D or 4D is fine) under just classical gravity (i.e., inverse-square force law), what stable periodic orbits ...

### Symmetric polynomials that detect positivity

Imagine there are numbers $a_1,\ldots,a_n \in \mathbb R$ and you want to know whether they are all positive. You cannot access the numbers themselves, but you can choose any symmetric polynomials you ...

### Stability of certain second order ODE

I am having a hard time determining the motion of $X$ in the ODE $X''+\nabla f(X)=0$ with initial conditions arbitrary $X(0)$ and zero velocity, i.e. $X'(0) = 0$. $X$ is in $\mathbb{R}^{n}$, and $f$ ...

### Why should we model infectious diseases with fractional differential equations?

With COVID19 becoming a pandemic I saw some researchers trying to model it with fractional differential equations (FDE) instead of ordinary differential equations (ODE). From a technical standpoint I ...

### Terminology: Almost stable states

I have a question about fixed points which are almost stable. I have an increasing transition function $f:[0,1]\rightarrow[0,1]$ where $f(0)>0$ and $f(1)<1$ but I don't necessarily have ...
