Abstract

We present several equivalent characterizations of uniform global exponential stability (UGES) and uniform global asymptotic stability (UGAS) of arbitrary closed (not necessarily compact) sets for non-linear difference inclusions. In particular, we provide several characterizations of these stability properties via summability criteria that do not require the knowledge of a Lyapunov function. We apply our results to prove novel-nested Matrosov theorems for UGES and UGAS of the origin for time-varying non-linear difference inclusions. © 2010 Taylor & Francis.
