A new type of stability is introduced and its equivalent Lyapunov characterization is presented. The problem of global stability for the compact set composed of all invariant solutions of a nonlinear system (several equilibriums, for instance) is studied. Such problem statement allows us to analyze global stability properties for multi-stable systems. It is shown that several well-known multi-stable systems satisfy this new stability property.
