Problem 1 (20 points). Design a second-order (i.e., two-state) systemwith

a stable limit cycle and an unstable focus. You may use polar coordinates, but

your final answer should be in Cartesian coordinates.

Solution. One possibility:

r˙ = −r(r − 1)

✓˙ = 1

where

x = r cos ✓

y = r sin ✓.

Then

x˙ = r˙ cos ✓ − r sin ✓ = −(r − 1)r cos ✓ − r sin ✓ = −x(

p

x2 + y2 − 1) − y

y˙ = r˙ sin ✓ + r cos ✓ = −(r − 1)r sin ✓ + r cos ✓ = −y(

p

x2 + y2 − 1) + x.

Problem 2 (20 points). Consider the system:

x˙ 1 = x2

˙ x2 = −x1 + x2(2 − 3x21

− 2x22

).

(a) Show that the set {(x1, x2) : x21

+ x22

1} is a positively invariant set.

(b) Show that the system has a periodic orbit.

Solution.

(a) Consider the set {(x1, x2) : x21

+ x22
