Lyapunov functions for general systems are difficult to construct. However,
for autonomous linear systems with exponentially stable equilibrium, there is
a classical way to construct a global Lyapunov function by solving a matrix equation.
Consequently, the same function is a local Lyapunov function for a nonlinear
In this paper, we generalise these results to time-periodic and, in particular, finite time
systems with an exponentially attractive zero solution. We show the existence
of local Lyapunov functions for nonlinear systems. For finite-time systems, we consider
a generalised notion of a Lyapunov function, which is not necessarily continuously
differentiable, but just locally Lipschitz continuous; the derivative is then
replaced by the Dini derivative.
