I notice it made no mention of finding equilibrium solution.
Does this mean that sage has no function that can be used to find the equilibrium solution for a given ordinary differential equation?Wed, 25 Dec 2013 12:41:17 -0600http://ask.sagemath.org/question/10858/can-sage-find-the-equilibrium-solution-to-a-first-order-differential-equation/Answer by calc314 for <p>I was reading <a href="http://www.sagemath.org/doc/reference/calculus/sage/calculus/desolvers.html">this</a> to get up to speed on how to use sage to solve differential equations.</p>

http://ask.sagemath.org/question/10858/can-sage-find-the-equilibrium-solution-to-a-first-order-differential-equation/?answer=15648#post-id-15648You can use the `solve` or `find_root` commands to solve equations. For many ODEs, the equilibrium solution can be found this way, although you may have to convert a higher-order ODE into a first-order system.
