Abstract: We derive new sufficient conditions for uniform asymptotic stability of the zero solution of linear non-autonomous delay differential equations. The equations considered include scalar equations of the form

$\displaystyle x'\left( t \right) = - c\left( t \right)x\left( t \right) + \sum\limits_{i = 1}^n {{b_i}\left( t \right)x\left( {t - {T_i}} \right)} $

where $ c\left( t \right)$, $ {b_i}\left( t \right)$ are continuous for $ t \ge 0$ and $ {T_i}$ is a positive number $ (i = 1, 2,...,n)$, and also systems of the form

$\displaystyle x'(t) = B(t)x(t - T) - C(t)x(t)$

where $ B(t)$) and $ C(t)$ are $ n \times n$ matrices. The results are found by using the method of Lyapunov functionals.
