SIGMA]] (y) = (0, g(y)) is called sliding vector field.
The existence of sliding closed poly-trajectories depends of some inequalities which are related with: equilibrium position (real or virtual), the sign of derivative of the sliding vector field and the determinant of the matrices [A.
2] > 0, and the sliding vector field is given in (12).
2] = 0, then the sliding vector field is identically zero and this implies the non-existence of closed sliding poly-trajectories.
Based on field investigation of the property of the landslide, a simplified three dimensional limit equilibrium method which considering the sliding value and sliding vector was used to calculate the stability factor.

1 of [10] says that there exists a singular perturbation problem such that the sliding region is homeomorphic to the slow critical manifold and the sliding vector field is topologically equivalent to the reduced problem.
