An improved stability criterion for a class of Lur'e systems
46th IEEE Conference on Decision and Control
Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE)
We consider the stability of the feedback connection of a linear time invariant (LTI) plant with a static nonlinearity expressed by a certain class of quadratic program. By generalizing the class of candidate Lyapunov functions we improve on existing results in the literature. A Lyapunov function is constructed via the S-procedure from quadratic constraints established using the Karush-Kuhn-Tucker (KKT) conditions. The stability criterion can be expressed as a linear matrix inequality (LMI) condition. We discuss some simple examples that demonstrate the improved results.

Tipping points in open systems: bifurcation, noise-induced and rate-dependent examples in the climate system Ashwin, Peter; Wieczorek, Sebastian; Vitolo, Renato; Cox, Peter M. (The Royal Society, 2012)Tipping points associated with bifurcations (B-tipping) or induced by noise (N-tipping) are recognized mechanisms that may potentially lead to sudden climate change. We focus here on a novel class of tipping points, where ...
Comparative Analysis of System Dynamics and Object-Oriented Bayesian Networks Modelling for Water Systems Management Susnik, Janez; Molina, Jose-Luis; Vamvakeridou-Lyroudia, Lydia S.; Savic, Dragan; Kapelan, Zoran (Springer Verlag, 2013)This paper presents a comparative analysis of System Dynamics Modelling (SDM) and Object-Oriented Bayesian Networks (OOBN). Both techniques are extensively used for water resources modelling due to their flexibility, ...
