n(s) system is BIBO stable Pole : roots of d(s)
d(s) All the poles of G(s) are in the open left
half of the complex plane. Characteristic polynomial : d(s)
system is asymptotically stable Characteristic equation : d(s)=0

stability condition and asymptotic stability
condition are different.
For linear time-invariant (LTI) systems (to which
timewe can use Laplace transform and we can
obtain a transfer function), the conditions
happen to be the same.
In this course, we are interested in only LTI
systems, we use simply “stable” to mean both
BIBO and asymptotic stability. Asym. Stability:
(y(0)=0) Bounded if Re(α)>0

G(s) has no pole in the open RHP (Right Half Plane), &
G(s) has at least one simple pole on jw-axis, &
jwG(s) has no multiple pole on jw-axis.
