Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

This note aims to establish the fast switching condition with average dwell time satisfying an upper bound. Important results are obtained on the behaviour of switched nonlinear dynamical systems. In specific, this note contributes in the following three aspects: (1) establish the condition of fast switching of switched nonlinear systems; (2) obtain the condition of arbitrary switching stability of switched nonlinear dynamical systems using a weak Lyapunov functions approach; and (3) prove the necessity of the average dwell time condition associated with the conventional multiple Lyapunov functions’ framework.
