Abstract:
Many control and signal processing applications require testing stability of polynomials. Classical tests for locating zeros of polynomials are recursive, but they must be stopped whenever the so called "singular polynomials" appear. These ``singular cases'' are often avoided by perturbing the "singular polynomial". Perturbation techniques although always successful are not proven to be wellfounded. Our aim is to give a mathematical foundation to a perturbation method in order to overcome "singular cases" when using Levinson recursion as a testing method. The nonsingular polynomials are proven to be dense in the set of all polynomials respect the L²norm on the unit circle . The proof is constructive and can be used algorithmically.
