This chapter defines local pre-asymptotic stability for a compact (closed and bounded) set and studies its properties for systems that are nominally well-posed or well-posed. While Chapter 3 dealt with global (and uniform) pre-asymptotic stability, the more general local pre-asymptotic stability is studied in this chapter, although for the more restrictive case of compact sets. Properties of the basin of attraction and uniformity of convergence are here analyzed, and some general examples of locally pre-asymptotically stable sets are given. The chapter reveals that, for nominally well-posed hybrid systems, pre-asymptotic stability turns out to be equivalent to uniform pre-asymptotic stability. For well-posed systems, pre-asymptotic stability turns out to be equivalent to uniform, robust pre-asymptotic stability and implies the existence of a Smooth Lyapunov function.

Keywords:   asymptotic stability, pre-asymptotic stability, compact sets, well-posedness, pre-asymptotically stable sets, pre-asymptotic stability, Smooth Lyapunov function
