Smooth stabilization implies coprime factorization. (English) Zbl 0682.93045

The main theorem states that if a nonlinear system \(\dot x=f(x)+G(x)u\) can be made globally asymptotically stable by a smooth feedback \(u=K(x)\), then there also exists a smooth feedback \(u=K'(x)+v\) such that the feedback modified system is input-to-state stable. The construction of \(K'(x)\) is given explicitly for feedback linearizable systems, which are trivially smoothly stabilizable. Based upon this main result it is also shown that smoothly stabilizable systems admit coprime factorizations. Finally some results about input-to-output stability are given.
