While the asymptotic stability of positive linear systems in the presence of bounded time delays has been thoroughly investigated, the theory for nonlinear positive systems is considerably less well-developed. This technical note presents a set of conditions for establishing delay-independent stability and bounding the decay rate of a significant class of nonlinear positive systems which includes positive linear systems as a special case. Specifically, when the time delays have a known upper… Expand

If a positive system is asymptotically stable for a given constant delay, then it is exponentially stable for all constant delays, and if the involved delays are unbounded, then the positive system may be not exponentially stable even if it is asylptotic stable. Expand
