On the second Lyapunov method in the stability theory of dynamical systems. (Russian) Zbl 0568.34037

Let (X,\(\rho)\) be a complete metric space. In the paper, necessary and sufficient conditions such that one point \(p\in X\) and the corresponding trajectory \(\Pi\) (p,t) (respectively a set \(A\subseteq X)\) is stable in the Lyapunov sense with respect to a set \(B\subseteq X\), are established.
The main results are contained in the theorems 1-4. It is indicated that the set \(A\subseteq \bar B\) is stable with respect to the set B only if there exists a neighborhood U of A and a corresponding Lyapunov function for the couple \((A,B_ U)(B_ U=B\cap U)\). If there exists a spherical neighborhood U of the set A and a Lyapunov function \(V: A\times B_ U\to R\) then the set A is stable with respect to the set B in the Lyapunov sense.
Necessary and sufficient conditions for the uniform stability of the set A with respect to the set B are established, and analogous conditions for uniform asymptotic stability are established. All conditions in the theorems are expressed in terms of Lyapunov functions (defined in a suitable sense).
