Stability Analysis

  • Jean-Pierre Corriou


The stability analysis relies on the same mathematical concepts, whether the system is in open or closed loop. Naturally, functions, variables, matrices, etc., which will be the object of the study, will be different. The cases of linear and nonlinear systems will be studied separately.
