We investigate stability of a solution of a hybrid system in the sense that the graphs of solutions from nearby initial conditions remain close and tend towards the graph of the given solution. In this manner, a small continuous-time mismatch is allowed between the jump times of neighbouring solutions and the ‘peaking phenomenon’ is avoided. We provide conditions such that this stability notion is implied by stability with respect to a specifically designed distance-like function. Hence, stability of solutions in the graphical sense can be analysed with existing Lyapunov techniques.
