Abstract:

The possible methods of constructing regions of stability of a linear automatic-control system in the space of the control parameters by using electronic digital computing machines and also methods for obtaining the coefficients of the characteristic equation are considered. The methods of constructing regions of stability that are considered in the article are based on application of algebraic criteria for stability. The use of Newtons interpolation method is extremely convenient when one is programming an electronic digital computing machine since it makes it possible to use the standard programs of linear algebra. This method also compares favorably with the other methods by making fewer demands on the memory of the machine at the cost of a row-by-row formation of the matrix of the transformation.
