Local Stability



In this chapter we shall analyse the local topological behaviour of the orbits of vector fields. We shall show that, for vector fields belonging to an open dense subset of the space X r (M), we can describe the behaviour of the trajectories in a neighbourhood of each point of the manifold. Moreover, the local structure of the orbits does not change for small perturbations of the field. A complete classification via topological conjugacy is then provided.
