**Linearization via the Lie Derivative**

by

**Carmen Chicone, Richard Swanson**-

**American Mathematical Society**

The proof of the Grobman-Hartman linearization theorem for a flow at a hyperbolic rest point proceeds by establishing the analogous result for hyperbolic fixed points of local diffeomorphisms. We present a proof that avoids the discrete case.
