    Control Lyapunov for Hybrid System

    A relatively interesting paper presented in IEEE Transactions on Automatic Control, it presents an argument for extending Control Lyapunov Functinos, a standard result for smooth equations, to discrete-time hybrid systems. As gaining insight from the 'raw' dynamics of a hybrid system can be challenging at best, adding a tool to reduce the complexity of analysis, much like Lyapunov theory for ordinary systems, is appealing.

    Why the Trot?

    Professor Revzen has been working with his collaborator Samuel Burden on extending the theory of smooth oscillators (differential equations having smooth vector fields and limit cycle behavior) to "hybrid" oscillators which aren't smooth, or even continuous.
