A system of ordinary differential equation is autonomous when it does not depend on time (does not depend on the independent variable) i.e. . In contrast nonautonomous is when the system of ordinary differential equation does depend on time (does depend on the independent variable) i.e. .
It can be noted that every nonautonomous system can be converted to an autonomous system by adding a dimension. i.e. If then it can be written as an autonomous system with and by doing a substitution with and .
