The lower and average spectral radii measure the minimal and average growth rates, respectively, of long products of matrices taken from a finite set. The logarithm of the average spectral radius is traditionally called the Lyapunov exponent. When one forms these products in the maxalgebra, we obtain quantities that measure the performance of Discrete Event Systems. We show that approximating the lower and average maxalgebraic spectral radii is NPhard.

We consider Lyapunov exponents of random iterates of monotone homogeneous maps. We assume that the images of some iterates are lines, with positive probability. Using this memoryloss property which holds generically for random products of matrices over the maxplus semiring, and in particular, for Tetrislike heaps of pieces models, we give a series expansion formula for the Lyapunov exponent, as a function of the probability law. In the case of rational probability laws, we show that the Lyapunov exponent is an analytic function of the parameters of the law, in a domain that contains the absolute convergence domain of a partition function associated to a special "forgetful" monoid, defined by generators and relations.
