Abstract: 
We present complexity results and semidefinite programming (SDP) based algorithms for stability analysis of polynomial differential equations. We show that deciding asymptotic stability of homogeneous cubic vector fields is strongly NP-hard. We then settle some of the converse questions on existence of polynomial and sum of squares Lyapunov functions.
