TL;DR: In this paper, the authors considered the problem of determining when there exists a smooth function u(x) such that x = xo is an equilibrium point which is asymptotically stable.

Abstract: We consider the loca1 behavior of control problems described by (* = dx/dr) i=f(x,u) ; f(x,0)=0 o and more specifically, the question of determining when there exists a smooth function u(x) such that x = xo is an equilibrium point which is asymPtotically stable. Our main results are formulated in Theorems 1 and 2 be1ow. Whereas it night have been suspected that controllability would insure the exlstence of a stabilizing control law, Theorem I uses a degree-theoretic argument to show this is far from being the case. The positive result of Theorem 2 can be thought of as providing an application of high gain feedback in a nonlinear setting. 1. Introduction In this paper we establish general theorems which are strong enough to irnply, among other things, that a) there is a continuous control law (u,v) = (u(xry, z) rv(x,y,z)) which makes the origin asympEoticatly stable for x=u y=v z=xy and that b) there exists no continuous control law (urv) = (u(xryrz), v(x,y,z)) which makes the origin asymptotically stable for 181

TL;DR: This paper focuses on the stability analysis for switched linear systems under arbitrary switching, and highlights necessary and sufficient conditions for asymptotic stability.

Abstract: During the past several years, there have been increasing research activities in the field of stability analysis and switching stabilization for switched systems. This paper aims to briefly survey recent results in this field. First, the stability analysis for switched systems is reviewed. We focus on the stability analysis for switched linear systems under arbitrary switching, and we highlight necessary and sufficient conditions for asymptotic stability. After a brief review of the stability analysis under restricted switching and the multiple Lyapunov function theory, the switching stabilization problem is studied, and a variety of switching stabilization methods found in the literature are outlined. Then the switching stabilizability problem is investigated, that is under what condition it is possible to stabilize a switched system by properly designing switching control laws. Note that the switching stabilizability problem has been one of the most elusive problems in the switched systems literature. A necessary and sufficient condition for asymptotic stabilizability of switched linear systems is described here.

TL;DR: In this article, it was shown that switching among stable linear systems results in a stable system provided that switching is slow-on-the-average, i.e., the number of switches in any nite interval grows linearly with the length of the interval, and the growth rate is suciently small.

Abstract: It is shown that switching among stable linear systems results in a stable system provided that switching is \slow-on-the-average." In particular, it is proved that exponential stability is achieved when the number of switches in any nite interval grows linearly with the length of the interval, and the growth rate is suciently small. Moreover, the exponential stability is uniform over all switchings with the above property. For switched systems with inputs this guarantees that several input-to-state induced norms are bounded uniformly over all slow-on-the-average switchings. These results extend to classes of nonlinear switched systems that satisfy suitable uniformity assumptions. In this paper it is also shown that, in a supervisory control context, scale-independent hysteresis can produce switching that is slow-on-the-average and therefore the results mentioned above can be used to study the stability of hysteresis-based adaptive control systems.

Abstract: It is shown that switching among stable linear systems results in a stable system provided that switching is "slow-on-the-average". In particular, it is proved that exponential stability is achieved when the number of switches in any finite interval grows linearly with the length of the interval, and the growth rate is sufficiently small. Moreover, the exponential stability is uniform over all switchings with the above property. For switched systems with inputs this guarantees that several input-to-state induced norms are bounded uniformly over all slow-on-the-average switchings. These results extend to classes of nonlinear switched systems that satisfy suitable uniformity assumptions. In this paper it is also shown that, in a supervisory control context, scale-independent hysteresis can produce switching that is slow-on-the-average and therefore the results mentioned above can be used to study the stability of hysteresis-based adaptive control systems.

TL;DR: In this paper, the authors present a tutorial on modeling the dynamics of hybrid systems, on the elements of stability theory for hybrid systems and on the basics of hybrid control, focusing on the robustness of asymptotic stability to data perturbation, external disturbances and measurement error.

Abstract: Robust stability and control for systems that combine continuous-time and discrete-time dynamics. This article is a tutorial on modeling the dynamics of hybrid systems, on the elements of stability theory for hybrid systems, and on the basics of hybrid control. The presentation and selection of material is oriented toward the analysis of asymptotic stability in hybrid systems and the design of stabilizing hybrid controllers. Our emphasis on the robustness of asymptotic stability to data perturbation, external disturbances, and measurement error distinguishes the approach taken here from other approaches to hybrid systems. While we make some connections to alternative approaches, this article does not aspire to be a survey of the hybrid system literature, which is vast and multifaceted.
