Phase properties of Hurwitz polynomials Conference Paper uri icon

abstract

  • In [1] Rantzer established a fundamental bound on the rate of change of phase of a Hurwitz polynomial. An inductive proof was given. In a recent paper Bose [2] has stated that this fundamental bound can be derived from Tellegen's Theorem in network theory. The purpose of this paper is to give a direct proof of the fundamental bound using the Hermite-Bieler Theorem which in turn follows from the monotonic phase property and total phase change properties of a Hurwitz polynomial. This is instructive because control engineers are, by and large, unfamiliar with Tellegen's Theorem and our direct proof makes transparent the central role played by these phase properties.
