## Abstract

To study the dynamics of mechanical systems and to define the construction parameters and control laws, it is necessary to have computational models accurately describing properties of real mechanisms. From a mathematical point of view, the computational models of mechanical systems are actually the systems of differential equations. These models can contain equations that also describe non-mechanical phenomena. In this chapter, the problems of stability and asymptotic stability conditions for the motion of mechanical systems with holonomic and non-holonomic constraints are under consideration. Stability analysis for the systems of differential equations is given in term of the second Lyapunov's method. With the use of the set-theoretic approach, the necessary and sufficient conditions for stability and asymptotic stability of zero solution of the considered system are formulated. The proposed approaches can be used to study the stability of the motion for robot manipulators, transport, space, and socio-economic systems.
