This paper presents a multidimensional extension of the Schur-Cohn algorithm for testing BIBO stability in N variables. This new method only needs a unique condition to be checked, as an alternative to the set of conditions of the well-known Huang-Jury-Anderson stability test. The proposed algorithm is based on a generalization of the Schur coefficients recently obtained by the authors. In the two-variable case a simplification to the Sturm algorithm is presented, which can also be used in the case of a polynomial with complex coefficients. This approach is illustrated on several numerical examples.
