Abstract: The principal purpose of this paper is to present sufficient conditions for total stability, or stability under constantly acting perturbations, of sets of a sufficiently general kind for nonautonomous ordinary differential equations. To do this, two Liapunov-like functions with specific properties are used. The obtained results include and considerably improve the classical results on total stability of isolated equilibrium points. Applications are presented to study the stability of nonautonomous Lurie-type nonlinear equations.
