**An Algorithm for Constructing Lyapunov Functions**

by Sigurdur Freyr Hafstein

2007**Number of pages**: 100

**Description**:

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.
