Nonlinear systemsThis 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 passivitybased control; integral control, highgain feedback, recursive methods, optimal stabilizing control, control Lyapunov functions, and observers. For use as a selfstudy or reference guide by engineers and applied mathematicians.
