Dynamical system (for x not equal to zero) and f(x)=0 (for x=0). How to find equilibrium points, and determining the stability of each equilibrium point?
I found the equilibrium points x=0 and x=1/(kπ), where k is integer. .
When k is 'even',
which is positive, therefore not asymptotically stable.
And when k is 'odd',
which is negative, therefore asymptotically stable.
But f′(x=0)=0, which is not hyperbolic. And this is the part that I can not solve.
Thanks in advance.

For a continuous dynamical system, it's pretty strange to have a function rather than an ODE... but anyway. Generally non-hyperbolic equilibria are a pain, but in a one-dimensional case like this, you can use the higher-order derivative test: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deriva...erivative_test
