A graph-theoretic approach to the construction of Lyapunov functions for coupled systems on networks

  • Author / Creator
    Shuai, Zhisheng
  • For coupled systems of differential equations on networks, a graph-theoretic approach to the construction of Lyapunov functions is systematically developed in this thesis. Kirchhoff’s Matrix-Tree Theorem in graph theory plays an essential role in the approach’s development. The approach is successfully applied to several coupled systems well-known in the literature to demonstrate its applicability and effectiveness.
