Lyaponuv stability condition of linear systems for homogenous P in V(x) = x^T P x

I am currently learning about using Lyaponuv functions to find Linear Matrix Inequalities (LMIs) as conditions for stability of a linear time invariant system. i.e. $$ \dot{x}(t) = Ax(t) $$ is stable ...

Does the characteristic polynomial contains all the poles of a closed-loop transfer function?

The Transfer Function of a Closed-Loop system is: $T(s)=\frac{Z(s)}{1+G(s)Z(s)}$. The BIBO stability of $T(s)$ is guaranteed if all the poles of $T(s)$ have negative real value. In many textbooks I'...
