This paper deals with the problems of robust stability analysis and robust stabilization for uncertain nonlinear polynomial systems. The combination of a polynomial system stability criterion with an improved robustness measure of uncertain linear systems has allowed the formulation of a new criterion for robustness bound estimation of the studied uncertain polynomial systems. Indeed, the formulated approach is extended to involve the global stabilization of nonlinear polynomial systems with maximization of the stability robustness bound. The proposed method is helpful
to improve the existing techniques used in the analysis and control for uncertain polynomial systems. Simulation examples illustrate the potentials of the proposed approach.
