This book is written is such a way that the level of mathematical sophistication builds up from chapter to chapter. It has been reorganized into four parts: basic analysis, analysis of feedback systems, advanced analysis, and nonlinear feedback control.
Updated content includes subjects which have proven useful in nonlinear control design in recent years—new in the 3rd edition are: expanded treatment of passivity and passivity-based control; integral control, high-gain feedback, recursive methods, optimal stabilizing control, control Lyapunov functions, and observers.
For use as a self-study or reference guide by engineers and applied mathematicians.
Intended for first-year graduate students in engineering and mathematics in courses in nonlinear systems or control, this text may also be used for self-study or reference by engineers and applied mathematicians. A previous graduate course in linear systems is assumed. This third edition has been revised to make it more accessible for first-year graduate students, and has been reorganized to make it easier to structure nonlinear systems or control courses. There is expanded treatment of passivity-based control, integral control, high-gain observers, and bifurcation. Some 170 new exercises have been added.
