Through recent research combining the geometric
desingularization or blow-up method and classical
control tools, it has been possible to locally stabilize nonhyperbolic
points of singularly perturbed control systems.
In this letter we propose a simple method to enlarge the
region of attraction of a non-hyperbolic point in the aforementioned
setting by expanding the geometric analysis
around the singularity. In this way, we can synthesize
improved controllers that stabilize non-hyperbolic points
within a large domain of attraction. Our theoretical results
are showcased in a couple of numerical examples
