Mittag-Leffler stability of fractional order nonlinear dynamic systems. (English) Zbl 1185.93062

Summary: We propose the definition of Mittag-Leffler stability and introduce the fractional Lyapunov direct method. Fractional comparison principle is introduced and the application of Riemann-Liouville fractional order systems is extended by using Caputo fractional order systems. Two illustrative examples are provided to illustrate the proposed stability notion.
