Abstract

A transcendental equation λ + α - βe-λτ = 0 with complex coefficients is investigated. This equation can be obtained from the characteristic equation of a linear differential equation with a single constant delay. It is known that the set of roots of this equation can be expressed by the Lambert W function. We analyze the condition on parameters for which all the roots have negative real parts by using the "graph-like" expression of the W function. We apply the obtained results to the stabilization of an unstable equilibrium solution by the delayed feedback control and the stability condition of the synchronous state in oscillator networks.
