Abstract

In this paper, plane polynomial systems having a singular point attracting all orbits in positive time are classified up to topological equivalence. This is done by assigning a combinatorial invariant to the system (a so-called “feasible set” consisting of finitely many vectors with components in the set {n/3 : n = 0, 1, 2, . . .}), so that two such systems are equivalent if and only if (after appropriately fixing an orientation in R2 and a heteroclinic separatrix) they have the same feasible set. In fact, this classification is achieved in the more general setting of continuous flows having finitely many separatrices. Polynomial representatives for each equivalence class are found, although in a nonconstructive way. Since, to the best of our knowledge, the literature does not provide any concrete polynomial system having a non-trivial globally attracting singular point, an explicit example is given as well.
