Software

To run the following Matlab software you need the LMI tool box and the IQC tool box.
The later can be obtained at either Prof. Megretski or Isaac .
 
 
L2-Gain of Double Integrators with Saturation Nonlinearity

----- For Matlab version 5.3 or higher: L2GAIN_1.0.

Global asymptotic stability analysis of equilibrium points of Saturation systems

----- For Matlab version 5.3 or higher: SAT_1.1.
 

Global asymptotic stability analysis of On/Off systems

----- For Matlab version 5.3 or higher: OFS_0.1
 

Global asymptotic stability analysis of Relay Feedback systems

----- If you have Matlab version 5.2 or lower: RFS_1.1.

----- If you have Matlab version 5.3 or higher: RFS_1.1.

Note that the IQC toolbox includes both files RFS_52.tar.gz and RFS_53.tar.gz (under applications).
