Time Varying BIBO Stability Analysis of Trapezoidal Integrated Optimised SVF v2

In November 2013 I posted a draft of “Time Varying BIBO Stability Analysis of Trapezoidal integrated optimised SVF v2” to the music-dsp mailing list.[1] The draft applied Jean Laroche’s state-space method [2] to prove the time varying stability of the SVF filter that Andy Simper had recently derived using trapazoidal integration.[3] I didn’t quite finish the stability proof. You can read the discussion in the mailing list thread to see how close we got.

I recently learnt that Aaron Wishnick had completed the stability proof and had also published a number of useful coefficient formulas for the SVF.[4] Aaron kindly cited my partial proof. Thanks Aaron!

For future reference the maxima source file for my draft analysis is now archived on github.
