maxeig

maxeig returns the maximum eigenvalue of $\beta$. If this number is negative, the equilibrium point is stable, if positive, it is unstable. As reported in Standish (1994)[7], the mutation drives the maximum eigenvalue slightly positive, then instabilities act to push the eigenvalue back to zero. This command requires LAPACK).
