Using a stability analysis based on the Lyapunov method, we study pulse dropout in an actively mode-locked fiber laser. The analysis gives a limit on the maximum pulse duration and the minimum laser power that are needed for stable operation without pulse dropout. The stability of pulse trains was studied analytically and validated numerically for different pulse shapes.
