The Routh-Hurwitz array and realization of characteristic polynomials

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In this paper we show that the Routh-Hurwitz array of a given characteristic polynomial provides all the information required to realize the polynomial using an electrical circuit. This new interpretation also leads to an intuitive proof of the Routh-Hurwitz stability criterion.
