Stability of a Time Varying System

Consider the linear time varying equation

e(t) = /1 u*(t )e(t),



0 < umin < u*(t) < umax V t ◦ 0


and such that A = – A/L is a stability matrix with П a negative number greater than the largest real part of its eigenvalues. Use the Gronwall-Bellman inequality Rugh (1996) to conclude that


\e(t)|| < \e(0)Wexp{J ||Au%(x)\dx}. 0


Considering (H.2), this implies

\e(t)|| < ||e(0)||enumint.


Since П < 0, this establishes asymptotic stability of (H.1).
