### Phase portraits and StreamPlot

I typed StreamPlot[{y, x-x^3-0.3y+0.5Cos[1.25t]}, {x, -2.5, 2.5}, {y, -2.5, 2.5}] but all I got was a blank plot. What did I do wrong and can I fix it?

### How do I plot x[t] vs. x'[t] (where x[t] and x'[t] are solutions to NDSolve)?

I have a differential equation which I solved using NDSolve. I can easily plot x[t] vs. t, x'[t] vs. t, but.... how do I plot x[t] vs. x'[t]? I tried using the Evaluate function to simplify things, ...

### How to plot the stable and unstable manifolds of a hyperbolic fixed point of a nonlinear system of differential equations?

Suppose we have the following simplified system of two ordinary differential equations: $$\dot{x}(t)=x(t)^2+2y(t)\\ \dot{y}(t)=3x(t)$$ The system has a hyperbolic fixed point the origin. Hence there ...
