    By using power mapping, stability analysis of fractional order polynomials was simplified to the stability analysis of expanded degree integer order polynomials in the first Riemann sheet. However, more investigation is needed for revealing properties of power mapping and demonstration of conformity of Hurwitz stability under power mapping of fractional order characteristic polynomials.

    In approximation of fractional order systems, a significant objective is to preserve the important properties of the original system. The monotonicity of time frequency responses is one of these properties whose preservation is of great importance in approximation process. Considering this importance, the issues of monotonicity preservation of the step response and monotonicity preservation of the... View full abstract»

    Robust controller design problem is investigated for a class of fractional order nonlinear systems with time varying delays. Firstly, a reduced-order observer is designed. Then, an output feedback controller is designed. Both the designed observer and controller are independent of time delays. By choosing appropriate Lyapunov functions, we prove the designed controller can render the fractional or... View full abstract»
