Stability. Lagrangian Near Equilibium. A 1-dimensional Lagrangian can be expanded near equilibrium. Expand to second order. Second Derivative. The Lagrangian simplifies near equilibrium. Constant is arbitrary Definition requires B = 0 The equation of motion follows from the Lagrangian

Normal modes for normal coordinates.
The eigenfrequencies w2 determine stability.
If stable, all positive
Diagonalization of VMatrix Stability
Track the difference from the equation of motion
Apply a Taylor expansion.
Keep first order
Small perturbations are stable with same frequency.Dynamic Equilibrium
Continuous, real function
The derivative with respect to a map f is defined as a dot product.
If V exists such that V*0, then the point 0 is stable.Lyapunov Stability
