Unified speed estimation of various stabilities

  • Mu-Fa Chen EMAIL logo
From the journal Special Matrices


The main topic of this talk is the speed estimation of stability/instability. The word “various” comes with no surprising since there are a lot of different types of stability/instability and each of them has its own natural distance to measure. However, the adjective “unified” is very much unexpected. The talk surveys our recent progress on the topic, made in the past five years or so.
