By Alberto Isidori
This demonstrated and authoritative textual content makes a speciality of the layout and research of nonlinear keep watch over platforms. the writer considers the most recent examine effects and strategies during this up to date and prolonged edition.
Topics coated include:
• neighborhood and worldwide decompositions of keep an eye on systems;
• input-ouput maps and cognizance theory;
• nonlinear suggestions for single-input/single-output platforms and multi-input/multi-output systems;
• functions of kingdom feedback;
• output rules and
• international stabilization and disturbance attenuation.
Examples are given from mechanical, electric and aerospace engineering. The strategy comprises a rigorous mathematical formula of regulate difficulties and respective equipment of resolution. the 2 appendices define crucial innovations of differential geometry and current a few particular facts hardly ever present in different typical works. This makes Nonlinear regulate Systems appropriate as a graduate and undergraduate textual content and as a resource of reference.
