P-matrices and Lyapunov scalar stability

    Student thesis: Thesis


    For partitions α of f1;:::;ng, the classes of P α -matrices are defined, unifying the classes of the real P -matrices and of the real positive definite matrices. Lyapunov scalar stability of matrices is defined and characterized, and it is shown also that every real Lyapunov α-scalar stable matrix is a P α -matrix. Implication relations between Lyapunov scalar stability and H-stability are discussed.
