Then there were the pebbles and stones that turned under him when he trod upon them; and from them he came to know that the things not alive were not all in the same state of

stable equilibrium as was his cave--also, that small things not alive were more liable than large things to fall down or turn over.

It tends to be a pretty

stable equilibrium so there tends to be one or two reserve currencies, and it tends to last for a long time.

The recurring theme of the book is the opportunities lost and the prospects of realising the potential unleashed by the comprehensive devolution under the 18th Amendment to the Constitution and the 7th NFC Award, with the rider 'that effective implementation of provincial autonomy would take some time to find a

stable equilibrium.

The Nash theorem demonstrates that, in many situations, there is always a

stable equilibrium for non-cooperative games with two or more players.

Economists have recendy favored an approach in which societies move from one point to another on a linear continuum until a critical juncture is reached, usually some externally administered perturbation, such as the great plague of the fourteenth century or the English Revolution of the seventeenth century, which causes a shift to another

stable equilibrium state.

If the system has

stable equilibrium point, the control goal is to design the controller to make the system (2.2) global asymptotical stabilization approach the equilibrium point.

On the lower level were seven carved-stone gombocs--convex objects originally hypothesized by the Russian mathematician Vladimir Arnold in 1995 that are shaped in such a way that they always return to a position of

stable equilibrium. Placed in the corresponding locations on the upper level, but otherwise rather disparate, were seven stone sculptures of mythological nymphs frolicking in volcanic sand, except for the fact that Gander had suggestively slipped a gomboc into one of the nymphs' hands.

Only countries with a

stable equilibrium between its centrifugal and centripetal forces stay afloat in comity of nations.

The stack reaches the 'tipping point', which, in physics, is simplistically the point at which an object goes from '

stable equilibrium' to a state that is completely the opposite.

(ii) If g([a.sup.2]M + [b.sup.2]g) > 0, then [e.sup.M.sub.1] is a nonlinearly

stable equilibrium point.

For [R.sup.*.sub.thr] < [R.sup.*.sub.1] < 1, system (1) will present the locally asymptotically stable low-criminality equilibrium [P.sub.l] plus two positive high-criminality equilibria, [P.sup.+.sub.h] and [P.sup.-.sub.h], which will correspond to the solutions of (9): [C.sup.+.sub.2], the higher solution, which corresponds to the

stable equilibrium, and [C.sup.-.sub.2], the smaller solution, which corresponds to the unstable equilibrium.

The core approach of DSGE modelling starts with conditions conducive to the emergence of a

stable equilibrium, and so it effectively rules out the possibility of crises.
