I was reading this to get up to speed on how to use sage to solve differential equations.

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?

You 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.
