14. Description of lectures
This course provides an initialization in nonlinear control theory. We introduce the basic concepts related to the geometric approach to nonlinear geometric system theory based on invariant distributions and provide solutions for the most fundamental design problems. As an illustration switched systems are presented. Linearization techniques are presented. It follows Lyapunov based stability theory, passivity based approaches and backstepping design. We provide some methods for nonlinear observer design. The courde ends with gain scheduling and LPV techniques.
