Summary: The notions of linear matrix inequalities (LMI) and convexity are strongly related. However, with state-space representation of fractional systems, the stability domain for a fractional order \(\nu\), \(0<\nu< 1\), is not convex. The classical LMI stability conditions thus cannot be extended to fractional systems. In this paper, three LMI-based methods are used to characterize stability. The first uses the second Lyapunov method and provides a sufficient but nonnecessary condition. The second and new method provides a sufficient and necessary condition, and is based on a geometric analysis of the stability domain. The third method is more conventional but involves nonstrict LMI with a rank constraint.
