Separable Lyapunov functions for monotone systems: Constructions and limitations.
(2015) In Discrete and Continuous Dynamical Systems. Series B 20(8). p.24972526 Abstract
 For monotone systems evolving on the positive orthant, two types of Lyapunov functions are considered: Sum and maxseparable Lyapunov functions. One can be written as a sum, the other as a maximum of functions of scalar arguments. Several constructive existence results for both types are given. Notably, one construction provides a maxseparable Lyapunov function that is defined at least on an arbitrarily large compact set, based on little more than the knowledge about one trajectory. Another construction for a class of planar systems yields a global sumseparable Lyapunov function, provided the right hand side satisfies a smallgain type condition. A number of examples demonstrate these methods and shed light on the relation between the... (More)

Negative examples show that there are indeed globally asymptotically stable systems that do not admit either type of Lyapunov function. (Less)
