Algebraic test for the Hurwitz stability of a given segment of polynomials. (English) Zbl 1141.93043
Summary: For the robust stability analysis of a linear system, due to the nonconvexity of the set of Hurwitz stable polynomials, it is important to have available computational methods to verify the stability of a convex combination of polynomials. In this paper, given two Hurwitz stable polynomials \(p_0\) and \(p_1\), a simple algebraic test (a matrix inequality) for the stability of the segment of polynomials determined by \(p_0\) and \(p_1\) is proposed. Based on this result the problem of estimating of the minimum left extreme is addressed.
