Abstract

The classical Matrosov theorem concludes uniform asymptotic stability of time-varying systems via a weak Lyapunov function (positive definite, decrescent, with negative semi-definite derivative along solutions) and another auxiliary function with derivative that is strictly nonzero where the derivative of the Lyapunov function is zero (Mastrosov in J Appl Math Mech 26:1337-1353, 1962). Recently, several generalizations of the classical Matrosov theorem have been reported in Loria et al. (IEEE Trans Autom Control 50:183-198, 2005). None of these results provides a construction of a strong Lyapunov function (positive definite, decrescent, with negative definite derivative along solutions) whic..
