An Algorithm for Constructing Lyapunov Functions
by Sigurdur Freyr Hafstein
Number of pages: 100
In this monograph we develop an algorithm for constructing Lyapunov functions for arbitrary switched dynamical systems, possessing a uniformly asymptotically stable equilibrium. We give numerous examples of Lyapunov functions constructed by our method at the end of the monograph.
