Hurwitz-Schur Stability Test of 2-D Polynomials

Copyright (C) Yang XIAO, Beijing Jiaotong University, Aug.8, 2007, E-Mail:

The stability of 2-D continuous-discrete systems and time-delay systems can be determined by the Hurwitz-Schur Stability of characteristic polynomials of the systems [1-3].
The characteristic polynomials can be expressed as a 2-D Polynomial in s-z domain: B(z1,z2)=[1 z^(-1) z^(-2)]*B*[1 s s^2]'.
This program derived from the main results of Ref. [1-3], and it can test the Hurwitz-Schur Stability of 2-D Polynomials.

Dear Yang Xiao

I perused your Hurwitz-Schur stability test with matlab program algorithm and run-times.

[1]. If you use the matlab-vector application instead of for-next(end) procedure than it is more speedly.
For example:


[2] If you make this m-file, one matlab sub-function than be very usefully for users.

Good works, best regards
