Lyapunov was a Russian mathematician who worked on proving stability of systems (among many other things), and in this class we will use Lyapunov functions to prove the stability of non-linear systems.

If you want more info on the man, see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aleksandr_Lyapunov For more info on the theory of Lyapunov functions, come to class Wed/Fri.
