A few minutes after posting the answer below I noticed the obvious fact that in your particular case yo do not need even to solve the differential equations to see the flow field. In fact the easiest way to do so is simply load the package: <<Graphics`PlotField` define the function: h[x_,y_]:={(1-x-0.5*y)*x,(1-y-0.8*x)*y} And then plot the flow vector field: PlotVectorField[h[x,y],{x,0,1,0.1},{y,0,1,0.1}] Andrzej Kozlowski Toyama International University JAPAN http://platon.c.u-tokyo.ac.jp/andrzej/ On Wednesday, January 2, 2002, at 09:25 PM, Andrzej Kozlowski wrote: > You should specify the region over which you wish to plot the flow > lines, which means both the "starting points" and the duration of > flows.
