- What is a run away solution?
I was asked to show that a system has run away solutions, the implications of which are that it is inherently unstable.
Great. Thanks a lot. I see the line " Even though the applied force is constant, the acceleration grows exponentially ...". So a solution is termed as a run away solution if it results in an exponential number of possibilities. In other words, a run away solution is also an intractable solution. ThanksIt has acausal runaway solutions as detailed in the paper.
... by whom, and in what course, about what kind of system? -- That kind of context might help other members to target your problem a lot better. Stability is a multidisciplinary topic where context would help narrow down to what you need.
