ab: From the text: In this article a Matlab workbook is developed. Examples are
shown and the workbook, which will be made available to interested
readers, provides a simple means to explore the concept of equilibrium
through a multitude of examples, thus enhancing the appreciation and
understanding of the concepts of stability of engineering systems
described using autonomous differential equations. Note that users must
have the symbolic toolbox in Matlab to run the workbook since the
analytical solutions and displays of equations require it.
