Polyhedral Lyapunov functions can approximate any norm arbitrarily well. Because of this, they are used to study the stability of linear time varying and linear parameter varying systems without being conservative. However, the computational cost associated with using them grows unbounded as the size of their representation increases. Finding them is also a hard computational problem. Here we present an algorithm that attempts to find polyhedral functions while keeping the size of the representation fixed, to limit computational costs. We do this by measuring the gap from contraction for a given polyhedral set. The solution is then used to find perturbations on the polyhedral set that reduce the contraction gap. The process is repeated until a valid polyhedral Lyapunov function is obtained. The approach is rooted in linear programming. This leads to a flexible method capable of handling additional linear constraints and objectives, and enables the use of the algorithm for control synthesis.
