# Some stability theorems for polygons of polynomials

@article{Pujara1992SomeST, title={Some stability theorems for polygons of polynomials}, author={L. R. Pujara and Naresh R. Shanbhag}, journal={IEEE Transactions on Automatic Control}, year={1992}, volume={37}, pages={1845-1849} }

Some necessary and sufficient conditions for a polynomial in a polygon of polynomials to vanish on the imaginary axis are obtained. These theorems generalize the segment lemma of H. Chapellat and S.P. Bhattachartta (see ibid., vol.34, p.448-50, 1989) to a polygon of polynomials. >

An alternative method which is less conservative than the Kharitonov Theorem (1978) approach is used to find robust stability bounds and to show that the compensated system of the device remains stable when the capacitor and the equivalent averaged resistance vary over large intervals around their nominal values.
