Abstract : "In this paper, the practical stability and stabilization of a class of nonlinear neutral type time delay systems with multiple delays and bounded perturbations is discussed. Sufficient conditions based
on Lyapunov-Krasovskii functionals are derived. They are formulated in terms of the feasibility of a set of Bilinear Matrix Inequalities (BMI’s). A practical exponential estimate of the system response is also obtained. This approach is shown to be useful in the solution of an engineering problem: the elimination of the stick-slip phenomenon in the drilling process."
