Linear stability analysis of the
For the purpose of linear stability analysis, we approximate a system of
nonlinear differential equations with its first-order Taylor expansion. In the
case of the dove-hawk-law-abider model this means approximating
with the linear system
where J(p0) is the Jacobian matrix of the system at the stationary state p0,
that is, the matrix
