Phase Portraits in MATLAB

  1. Sep 3, 2008 #1

    Doesn't MATLAB come with commands to draw phase portraits of linear systems? I can't seem to find anything in the help file. Google searches tell me about third party tools, which I am not supposed to use in my laboratory experiments and assignments.

    Any ideas?

    Is there any reason why you just can't solve the ODE and then plot the result?

    Sorry, I should have actually asked the following question: how do I plot attractor/repellor basins (with arrows)?
