A method for designing a stabilizing control for a class of uncertain linear delay systems

  • Takashi Amemiya
  • George Leitmann


We present a simple method for designing stabilizing controllers for linear delay equations containing unmatched uncertainty. The methodology employed is based on differential inequalities rather than on Lyapunov stability theory.
