    In 2001 and following years Rantzer introduced a new stability characterization [1, 2, 3]. It is dual to Lyapunov stability. It is very elegant with many interesting particle-flow interpretations and it has the striking feature that it can be used for systems with multiple equilibrium points (or sets). In this talk we will interpret Rantzer’s main theorem and re-address the inverse problem (already solved [2, 3]). The inverse problem — well studied for Lyapunov functions — is about the fundamental property that a system is stable (in some sense) only if a Lyapunov function exists, or in the present context, only if a Rantzer density function exists.
