Interconnections of nonlinear systems with "mixed" small gain and passivity properties and associated input-output stability results


A negative feedback interconnection consisting of two causal, nonlinear systems is shown to be input–output stablewhen a ‘‘mixed’’ small gain and passivity assumption is placed on each of the systems. The ‘‘mixed’’ small gain and passivity property captures the well-known notions of passivity and small gain associated with systems: the property can be… (More)
