Abstract:

Conditions are derived for the existence of quadratic Lyapunov functions for vector differential equations with quadratic terms. These conditions are used to establish a set of nonlinear equations for which the null solution is asymptotically stable in the whole. Many of the recent results in the stability of Model Reference Adaptive Systems are particular cases of these general conditions. Author
