This paper deals with concepts of output stability. Inspired in part by regulator theory, several variants are considered, which differ from each other in the requirements imposed upon transient behavior. The main results provide a comparison among the various notions, all of which specialize to input to state stability (ISS) when the output equals the complete state.
