Abstract

In this paper we study an alternative method for determining stability of dynamical systems by inspecting higher order derivatives of a Lyapunov function. The system can be time invariant or time varying; in both cases we define the higher order derivatives when there are inputs. We then claim and prove that if there exists a linear combination of those higher order derivatives with non-negative coefficients (except that the coefficient of the 0-th order term needs to be positive) which is negative semi-definite, then the system is globally uniformly asymptotically stable. The proof involves repeated applications of comparison principle for first order differential relations. We also show that a system with inputs whose auxiliary system admits a Lyapunov function satisfying the aforementioned conditions is input-to-state stable.
