Abstract : The authors investigate stability-in-the-large of the null solution of differential equations by use of Lyapunov functions. Five theorems are advanced which state various conditions a Lyapunov function must satisfy for the null solution of the above system to be stable-in-thelarge. The discussion is enhanced by two illustrative examples. (Author)
