Stability analysis of systems with distributed delays and application to hematopoietic cell maturation dynamics
We consider linear systems with distributed delays where delay kernels are assumed to be finite duration impulse responses of finite dimensional systems. We show that stability analysis for this class of systems can be reduced to stability analysis of linear systems with discrete delays, for which many algorithms are available in the literature. The results are illustrated on a mathematical model of hematopoietic cell maturation dynamics. © 2008 IEEE.
