In Chapter 2 we saw that any nonlinear system

$$ \dot x = f\left( x \right), $$

with ∈ C 1(E) and E an open subset of Rn, has a unique solution ø t (x0), passing through a point x0E at time t = 0 which is defined for all tI(x0), the maximal interval of existence of the solution. Furthermore, the flow ø t of the system satisfies (i) ø0(x)=x and (ii) ø t+s (x)=ø t s (x)) for all x ∈ E; and the function ø(t, x)=ø t (x) defines a C 1-map ø: Ω→ E where Ω, = {(t, x) ∈ R × E|tI(x)}.
