Stability Theory for Hybrid Dynamical Systems
This entry provides a short introduction to modeling of hybrid dynamical systems and then focuses on stability theory for these systems. It provides definitions of asymptotic stability, basin of attraction, and uniform asymptotic stability for a compact set. It points out mild assumptions under which different characterizations of asymptotic stability are equivalent, as well as when an asymptotically stable compact set exists. It also summarizes necessary and sufficient conditions for asymptotic stability in terms of Lyapunov functions.
