AM 231 Nonlinear Control Theory

Covers analysis and design of nonlinear control systems using Lyapunov theory and geometric methods. Includes properties of solutions of nonlinear systems, Lyapunov stability analysis, effects of perturbations, controllability, observability, feedback linearization, and nonlinear control design tools for stabilization. (Formerly AMS 231.)


Prerequisite(s): basic knowledge of mathematical analysis and ordinary differential equations is assumed. Enrollment is restricted to graduate students; undergraduates may enroll by permission of the instructor.
