In determining root distribution of univariate polynomials with real or complex-valued coefficients, the Bistritz tabular form offers a significant computational advantage. Stability studies of two-dimensional (2-D) discrete-time systems involve univariate polynomials possessing parameter-dependent coefficients, where the parameter takes values on the unit circle in the complex plane. This paper investigates the application of Bistritz tabular form in determining stability of 2-D discrete-time systems, and for this purpose we present two algorithms. Both algorithms utilize a recent result that has established the relationship between Schur-Cohn minors and the entries of the Bistritz tabular form corresponding to a given polynomial. A comparison between the use of the modified Jury table and the Bistritz table in stability checking of 2-D discrete-time systems is also presented.
