# Markus–Yamabe conjecture The conjecture is true for the two-dimensional case. However, counterexamples have been constructed in higher dimensions. Hence, in the two-dimensional case only, it can also be referred to as the Markus–Yamabe theorem.

Related mathematical results concerning global asymptotic stability, which are applicable in dimensions higher than two, include various autonomous convergence theorems. Analog of the conjecture for nonlinear control system with scalar nonlinearity is known as Kalman's conjecture.

Mathematical statement of conjecture Let {displaystyle f:mathbb {R} ^{n}rightarrow mathbb {R} ^{n}} be a {displaystyle C^{1}} map with {displaystyle f(0)=0} and Jacobian {displaystyle Df(x)} which is Hurwitz stable for every {displaystyle xin mathbb {R} ^{n}} . Then {displaystyle 0} is a global attractor of the dynamical system {displaystyle {dot {x}}=f(x)} .

The conjecture is true for {displaystyle n=2} and false in general for {displaystyle n>2} .
