This paper aims to compute the region of attraction (ROA) of equilibrium points whose location is modified by the uncertainties. The local stability region is formulated as an equilibrium-independent level set by restricting the attention to contractive functions which do not explicitly depend on the equilibrium. Another favourable feature of the approach is that it can be applied to systems having one or more branches of steady-state solutions (e.g. multistable systems). Inner estimates of the ROA are numerically computed by means of Sum of Square techniques, which allow to specify the allowed uncertainty range and the analyzed branch as set containment conditions, resulting in a compact and flexible formulation. A numerical example shows the application of the method and highlights its peculiar features.
