The existence of Zeno behavior in hybrid systems is related to a certain type of equilibria, termed Zeno equilibria, that are invariant under the discrete, but not the continuous, dynamics of a hybrid system. In analogy to the standard procedure of linearizing a vector field at an equilibrium point to determine its stability, in this paper we study the local behavior of a hybrid system near a Zeno equilibrium point by considering the value of the vector field on each domain at this point, i.e., we consider constant approximations of nonlinear hybrid systems. By means of these constant approximations, we are able to derive conditions that simultaneously imply both the existence of Zeno behavior and the local exponential stability of a Zeno equilibrium point. Moreover, since these conditions are in terms of the value of the vector field on each domain at a point, they are remarkably easy to verify.
