The description of the Routh–Hurwitz criteria for stability of linear, free vibrations is presented in a number of text books, but seldom with more detailed analytical expressions. Furthermore, the simplifications by Liénard–Chipart (1914) are often not included. This is the background for the present chapter and for applying the name Routh–Hurwitz-Liénard–Chipart criteria.
