Find equilibrium solutions for the following ODE initial-value(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

problem and linearize the problem about those solutions

z" = z − z^3,

z(0) = z0

z'(0) = v0

i found the equilibrium solutions to be 0,1,-1. what are the steps to linearize the problem around these?
