equilibrium

Equilibrium, meaning balance, occurs when all forces or influences on a system are balanced. In physics an example is when the sum of forces on an object result in no change in motion. In dynamical systems, an equilibrium is a solution or behavior of the system that does not change over time (a "fixed point" or "steady state").
