Abstract

Hybrid dynamical systems can exhibit many unique phenomena, such as Zeno behavior. Zeno behavior is the occurrence of infinite discrete transitions in finite time. Zeno behavior has been likened to a form of finite-time asymptotic stability, and corresponding Lyapunov theorems have been developed. In this paper, we propose a method to construct Lyapunov functions to prove Zeno stability of compact sets in cyclic hybrid systems with parametric uncertainties in the vector fields, domains and guard sets, and reset maps utilizing sum-of-squares programming. This technique can easily be applied to cyclic hybrid systems without parametric uncertainties as well. Examples illustrating the use of the proposed technique are also provided.
