Efficient Construction of Neural Networks Lyapunov Functions with Domain of Attraction Maximization

Benjamin Bocquillon, Philippe Feyel, Guillaume Sandou, Pedro Rodriguez-Ayerbe


This work deals with a new method for computing Lyapunov functions represented by neural networks for autonomous nonlinear systems. Based on the Lyapunov theory and the notion of domain of attraction, we propose an optimization method for determining a Lyapunov function modelled by a neural network while maximizing the domain of attraction. The potential of the proposed method is demonstrated by simulation examples.
