In the first section, the author investigates the singularly perturbed system \[ (1)\quad \dot x=f(t,x,z,\epsilon),\quad \epsilon \dot z=g(t,x,z,\epsilon), \] whre \(x\in {\mathbb{R}}^ n\), \(z\in {\mathbb{R}}^ m\) and \(\epsilon >0\) is a small parameter. Theorem 1 states essentially that if the reduced system and the boundary layer system are uniformly asymptotically stable and if interconnection conditions are satisfied, then the origin is a uniformly asymptotically stable equilibrium of (1). An explicit bound on \(\epsilon\) is given and a Lyapunov function is used from which an estimate of the attraction region could be deduced. These results are particularized to linear time varying systems. In the second section, the author considers a multiparameter singularly perturbed system \[ (2)\quad \dot x=f(x,z_ 1,...,z_ N),\quad x\in {\mathbb{R}}^ n,\quad \epsilon_ i\dot z_ i=g_ i(x,z_ 1,...,z_ N),\quad z_ i\in {\mathbb{R}}^{m_ i},\quad \epsilon_ i>0. \] The stability problem is investigated for all small values of the \(\epsilon_ i's\). In particular the analysis does not impose bounds on the ratio \(\epsilon_ i/\epsilon_{i+1}\). As in section 1, assumptions are given for the origin to be an asymptotically stable equilibrium of (2). Bounds on the \(\epsilon_ i\) and a Lyapunov function for system (2) are computed. Although no examples are worked out, the author refers to several applications that can be found in the literature.
