The author considers nonlinear systems (1) \(dx/dt = f(t,x)\), \(x \in \mathbb{R}^n\), which admit a decomposition into two subsystems \(dx_i/dt = g_i (t,x_i) + h_i (t,x)\), \(i = 1,2\), in such a way that the unperturbed subsystems \(dx_i/dt = g_i (t,x_i)\) are independent, i.e., \(x = (x_1, x_2)\), \(x_i \in \mathbb{R}^{n_i}\), \(\mathbb{R}^n = \mathbb{R}^{n_1} \oplus \mathbb{R}^{n_2}\). He defines the notions of local and global exponential multistability (which allow different decay rates for the components \(x_i)\) and gives sufficient conditions for the solutions of (1) to be locally or globally exponentially multistable.
