The problem of calculating the maximal Lyapunov exponent
(generalized spectral radius) of a discrete inclusion is
formulated as an average yield optimal control problem. It is
shown that the maximal value of this problem can be approximated
by the maximal value of discounted optimal control problems, where
for irreducible inclusions the convergence is linear in the
discount rate. This result is used to obtain convergence rates of
an algorithm for the calculation of time-varying stability radii.
