A general framework for Region of Attraction (ROA) analysis is presented. The considered system consists of the feedback interconnection of a plant with polynomial dynamics and a bounded operator. The input/output behavior of the latter is characterized using an Integral Quadratic Constraint (IQC), for which it is assumed an hard factorization holds. This formulation allows to analyze problems involving hard-nonlinearities and uncertainties, adding to the state of practice typically limited to polynomial vector fields. An iterative algorithm based on Sum of Squares optimization is proposed to compute inner estimates of the ROA. The effectiveness of this approach is demonstrated on a numerical example featuring a nonlinear closed-loop system with saturated inputs.
