In this paper, robustness bounds for the perturbations of continuous-time systems to ensure the stability of their discretized counterparts are developed. Both zero-order hold and P-step matrix integrators are considered. The effect of the sampling time on the robustness bounds is studied via examples. To determine how well a simulated system will retain the robustness properties of the continuous-time system being simulated, a new criterion for the selection of the simulation method and time step is introduced. Both implicit and explicit robustness measures for sampled-data systems are obtained.
