Consideration is given to the problem of robust stability analysis of linear dynamic systems with uncertain physical parameters entering as polynomials in the state equation matrices. A method is proposed giving necessary and sufficient conditions for computing the uncertain system stability margin in parameter space, which provides a measure of maximal parameter perturbations preserving stability of the perturbed system around a known, stable, nominal system. A globally convergent optimization algorithm that enables solutions to the problem to be obtained is presented. Using the polynomial structure of the problem, the algorithm generates a convergent sequence of interval estimates of the global extremum. These intervals provide a measure of the accuracy of the approximating solution achieved at each step of the iterative procedure. Some numerical examples are reported, showing attractive features of the algorithm from the point of view of computational burden and convergence behavior
