This book is a tribute to Prof. Alberto Isidori on the occasion of his 65th birthday. Prof. Isidori’s proli?c, pioneering and high-impact research activity has spanned over 35 years. Throughout his career, Prof. Isidori has developed ground-breaking results, has initiated researchdirections and has contributed towardsthe foundationofnonlinear controltheory.In addition,his dedication to explain intricate issues and di?cult concepts in a simple and rigorous way and to motivate young researchers has been instrumental to the intellectual growth of the nonlinear control community worldwide. The volume collects 27 contributions written by a total of 52 researchers. The principal author of each contribution has been selected among the - searchers who have worked with Prof. Isidori, have in?uenced his research activity, or have had the privilege and honour of being his PhD students. The contributions address a signi?cant number of control topics, including th- retical issues, advanced applications, emerging control directions and tutorial works. The diversity of the areas covered, the number of contributors and their international standing provide evidence of the impact of Prof. Isidori in the control and systems theory communities. The book has been divided into six parts: System Analysis, Optimization Methods, Feedback Design, Regulation, Geometric Methods and Asymptotic Analysis, re?ecting important control areas which have been strongly in- enced and, in some cases, pioneered by Prof. Isidori.

The purpose of this book is to present a self-contained description of the fun damentals of the theory of nonlinear control systems, with special emphasis on the differential geometric approach. The book is intended as a graduate text as weil as a reference to scientists and engineers involved in the analysis and design of feedback systems. The first version of this book was written in 1983, while I was teach ing at the Department of Systems Science and Mathematics at Washington University in St. Louis. This new edition integrates my subsequent teaching experience gained at the University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign in 1987, at the Carl-Cranz Gesellschaft in Oberpfaffenhofen in 1987, at the University of California in Berkeley in 1988. In addition to a major rearrangement of the last two Chapters of the first version, this new edition incorporates two additional Chapters at a more elementary level and an exposition of some relevant research findings which have occurred since 1985.

This text emphasizes classical methods and presents essential analytical tools and strategies for the construction and development of improved design methods in nonlinear control. It offers engineering procedures for the frequency domain, as well as solved examples for clear understanding of control applications in the industrial, electrical, process, manufacturing, and automotive industries. The authors discuss Properties of nonlinear systems, stability, linearization methods, operating modes and dynamic analysis methods, phase trajectories in dynamic analysis of nonlinear systems, and harmonic linearization in dynamic analysis of nonlinear control systems operating in stabilization mode.

This softcover book summarizes Lyapunov design techniques for nonlinear systems and raises important issues concerning large-signal robustness and performance. The authors have been the first to address some of these issues, and they report their findings in this text. The researcher who wishes to enter the field of robust nonlinear control could use this book as a source of new research topics. For those already active in the field, the book may serve as a reference to a recent body of significant work. Finally, the design engineer faced with a nonlinear control problem will benefit from the techniques presented here.

This work presents a novel method to solve analysis and design problems for nonlinear control systems, the classical solutions of which rely on the solvability, or on the solution itself, of partial differential equations or inequalities. The first part of the thesis is dedicated to the analysis of nonlinear systems. The notion of Dynamic Lyapunov function is introduced. These functions allow to study stability properties of equilibrium points, similarly to standard Lyapunov functions. In the former, however, a positive definite function is combined with a dynamical system that render Dynamic Lyapunov functions easier to construct than Lyapunov functions. These ideas are then extended to characterize Dynamic Controllability and Observability functions, which are exploited in the model reduction problem for nonlinear systems. Constructive solutions to the L2-disturbance attenuation and the optimal control problems are proposed in the second part of the thesis. The key aspect of these solutions is the definition of Dynamic Value functions that, generalizing Dynamic Lyapunov functions, consist of a dynamical feedback and a positive definite function. In the last part of the thesis a similar approach is utilized to simplify the observer design problem via the Immersion and Invariance technique. Finally, the effectiveness of the methodologies is illustrated by means of several applications, including range estimation and the optimal robust control of mechanical systems, combustion engine test benches and the air path of a diesel engine.

This book is a systematic summary of some new advances in the area of nonlinear analysis and design in the frequency domain, focusing on the application oriented theory and methods based on the GFRF concept, which is mainly done by the author in the past 8 years. The main results are formulated uniformly with a parametric characteristic approach, which provides a convenient and novel insight into nonlinear influence on system output response in terms of characteristic parameters and thus facilitate nonlinear analysis and design in the frequency domain. The book starts with a brief introduction to the background of nonlinear analysis in the frequency domain, followed by recursive algorithms for computation of GFRFs for different parametric models, and nonlinear output frequency properties. Thereafter the parametric characteristic analysis method is introduced, which leads to the new understanding and formulation of the GFRFs, and nonlinear characteristic output spectrum (nCOS) and the nCOS based analysis and design method. Based on the parametric characteristic approach, nonlinear influence in the frequency domain can be investigated with a novel insight, i.e., alternating series, which is followed by some application results in vibration control. Magnitude bounds of frequency response functions of nonlinear systems can also be studied with a parametric characteristic approach, which result in novel parametric convergence criteria for any given parametric nonlinear model whose input-output relationship allows a convergent Volterra series expansion. This book targets those readers who are working in the areas related to nonlinear analysis and design, nonlinear signal processing, nonlinear system identification, nonlinear vibration control, and so on. It particularly serves as a good reference for those who are studying frequency domain methods for nonlinear systems.

In the last two decades, the development of specific methodologies for the control of systems described by nonlinear mathematical models has attracted an ever increasing interest. New breakthroughs have occurred which have aided the design of nonlinear control systems. However there are still limitations which must be understood, some of which were addressed at the IFAC Symposium in Capri. The emphasis was on the methodological developments, although a number of the papers were concerned with the presentation of applications of nonlinear design philosophies to actual control problems in chemical, electrical and mechanical engineering.
