Try this one:
Remove[de]
de[epsilon_, x0_, v0_, T_] :=
Module[{eqn, x, y, t},
eqn = {Derivative[1][Derivative[1][x]][t] +
epsilon*(x[t]^2 - 1)*
Derivative[1][x][t] + x[t] == 0,
x[0] == x0, Derivative[1][x][0] == v0};
y = x /. NDSolve[eqn, x, {t, 0, T}][[1]];
ParametricPlot[{y[t], Derivative[1][y][t]},
{t, 0, T}, PlotStyle -> RGBColor[1, 0, 0],
Epilog ->
{RGBColor[0, 0, 1], AbsolutePointSize[5],
Point[{y[0], Derivative[1][y][0]}]}]; ]
Sample usage:
de[-.01,1,0,100]
If you copy the above into a NB, highlight the bracket, and type
Ctl-Shif-N, it will look a lot better. Anyway, try it.
