Nonlinear Control Theory

Introduction to Nonlinear Control Theory

The course covers analysis and design of nonlinear control systems using Lyapunov theory and geometric methods. Includes properties of solutions of nonlinear systems, Lyapunov stability analysis, feedback linearization, and nonlinear control design tools. Prerequisite(s): basic knowledge of ordinary differential equations; basic knowledge of linear algebra and basic knowledge of linear control theory. Enrollment restricted to graduate students or permission of instructor.
