In this talk, I will discuss three topics that we have recently developed in nonlinear systems theory. I will first discuss Generalised Absolute Stability, which is a general method of treating polynomial systems with non-polynomial, uncertain or time-varying feedback. Analysis is completed with sum of squares programming, and this method extends both the applicability of sum of squares as well as existing absolute stability theory. I will also introduce Restricted Partial Stability, the development of which allows improved local and global analysis methods for synchronisation of nonlinear networked systems. The work also allows a common framework for synchronisation analysis of both oscillator networks and power systems. Finally, I will briefly describe a model reduction technique for deriving reduced mechanistic models of gene regulation, as well as discussing applications of the models in system and synthetic biology.
