There has been much excitement over the emergence of new mathematical techniques for the analysis and control of nonlinear systems. In addition, great technological advances have bolstered the impact of analytic advances and produced many new problems and applications which are nonlinear in an essential way. This book lays out in a concise mathematical framework the tools and methods of analysis which underlie this diversity of applications.
For a first-year graduate-level course on nonlinear systems. It may also be used for self-study or reference by engineers and applied mathematicians. The text is written to build the level of mathematical sophistication from chapter to chapter. It has been reorganized into four parts: Basic analysis, Analysis of feedback systems, Advanced analysis, and Nonlinear feedback control.
A coherent treatment of nonlinear systems covering chaos, fractals, and bifurcation, as well as equilibrium, stability, and nonlinear oscillations. The systems treated are mostly of difference and differential equations. The author introduces the mathematical properties of nonlinear systems as an integrated theory, rather than simply presenting isolated fashionable topics. The topics are discussed in as concrete a way as possible, worked examples and problems are used to motivate and illustrate the general principles. More advanced parts of the text are denoted by asterisks, thus making it ideally suited to both undergraduate and graduate courses.
Adaptive Learning Methods for Nonlinear System Modeling presents some of the recent advances on adaptive algorithms and machine learning methods designed for nonlinear system modeling and identification. Real-life problems always entail a certain degree of nonlinearity, which makes linear models a non-optimal choice. This book mainly focuses on those methodologies for nonlinear modeling that involve any adaptive learning approaches to process data coming from an unknown nonlinear system. By learning from available data, such methods aim at estimating the nonlinearity introduced by the unknown system. In particular, the methods presented in this book are based on online learning approaches, which process the data example-by-example and allow to model even complex nonlinearities, e.g., showing time-varying and dynamic behaviors. Possible fields of applications of such algorithms includes distributed sensor networks, wireless communications, channel identification, predictive maintenance, wind prediction, network security, vehicular networks, active noise control, information forensics and security, tracking control in mobile robots, power systems, and nonlinear modeling in big data, among many others. This book serves as a crucial resource for researchers, PhD and post-graduate students working in the areas of machine learning, signal processing, adaptive filtering, nonlinear control, system identification, cooperative systems, computational intelligence. This book may be also of interest to the industry market and practitioners working with a wide variety of nonlinear systems. Presents the key trends and future perspectives in the field of nonlinear signal processing and adaptive learning. Introduces novel solutions and improvements over the state-of-the-art methods in the very exciting area of online and adaptive nonlinear identification. Helps readers understand important methods that are effective in nonlinear system modelling, suggesting the right methodology to address particular issues.
Model-Based Control of Nonlinear Systems presents model-based control techniques for nonlinear, constrained systems. It covers constructive control design methods with an emphasis on modeling constrained systems, generating dynamic control models, and designing tracking control algorithms for the models. The book’s interdisciplinary approach illustrates how system modeling and control theory are essential to control design projects. Organized according to the steps in a control design project, the text first discusses kinematic and dynamic modeling methods, including programmed constraints, Lagrange’s equations, Boltzmann−Hamel equations, and generalized programmed motion equations. The next chapter describes basic control concepts and the use of nonlinear control theory. After exploring stabilization strategies for nonlinear systems, the author presents existing model-based tracking control algorithms and path-following strategies for nonlinear systems. The final chapter develops a new model reference tracking strategy for programmed motion. Throughout the text, two examples of mechanical systems are used to illustrate the theory and simulation results. The first example is a unicycle model (nonholonomic system) and the second is a two-link planar manipulator model (holonomic system). With a focus on constructive modeling and control methods, this book provides the tools and techniques to support the control design process.

Introduction to the concepts, applications, theory, and technique of chaos. Suitable for advanced undergraduates and graduate students and researchers. Requires familiarity with differential equations and linear vector spaces. 1990 edition.
The equations used to describe dynamic properties of physical systems are often nonlinear, and it is rarely possible to find their solutions. Although numerical solutions are impractical and graphical techniques are not useful for many types of systems, there are different theorems and methods that are useful regarding qualitative properties of nonlinear systems and their solutions—system stability being the most crucial property. Without stability, a system will not have value. Nonlinear Systems Stability Analysis: Lyapunov-Based Approach introduces advanced tools for stability analysis of nonlinear systems. It presents the most recent progress in stability analysis and provides a complete review of the dynamic systems stability analysis methods using Lyapunov approaches. The author discusses standard stability techniques, highlighting their shortcomings, and also describes recent developments in stability analysis that can improve applicability of the standard methods. The text covers mostly new topics such as stability of homogonous nonlinear systems and higher order Lyapunov functions derivatives for stability analysis. It also addresses special classes of nonlinear systems including time-delayed and fuzzy systems. Presenting new methods, this book provides a nearly complete set of methods for constructing Lyapunov functions in both autonomous and nonautonomous systems, touching on new topics that open up novel research possibilities. Gathering a body of research into one volume, this text offers information to help engineers design stable systems using practice-oriented methods and can be used for graduate courses in a range of engineering disciplines.
Nonlinear Systems covers a wide range of topics in nonlinear science, from general nonlinear dynamics, soliton systems, and the solution of nonlinear differential and difference equations to the integrability of discrete nonlinear systems, and classical and quantum chaos. Its chapters reflect the current status of important nonlinear theories in various areas of applied mathematics and mathematical physics and collectively provide a comprehensive picture of new areas and their applications.
When M. Vidyasagar wrote the first edition of Nonlinear Systems Analysis, most control theorists considered the subject of nonlinear systems a mystery. Since then, advances in the application of differential geometric methods to nonlinear analysis have matured to a stage where every control theorist needs to possess knowledge of the basic techniques because virtually all physical systems are nonlinear in nature. The second edition, now republished in SIAM's Classics in Applied Mathematics series, provides a rigorous mathematical analysis of the behavior of nonlinear control systems under a variety of situations. It develops nonlinear generalizations of a large number of techniques and methods widely used in linear control theory. The book contains three extensive chapters devoted to the key topics of Lyapunov stability, input-output stability, and the treatment of differential geometric control theory. Audience: this text is designed for use at the graduate level in the area of nonlinear systems and as a resource for professional researchers and practitioners working in areas such as robotics, spacecraft control, motor control, and power systems.
Extensive numerical methods for computing design sensitivity are included in the text for practical application and software development. The numerical method allows integration of CAD-FEA-DSA software tools, so that design optimization can be carried out using CAD geometric models instead of FEA models. This capability allows integration of CAD-CAE-CAM so that optimized designs can be manufactured effectively.

Control of Nonlinear Systems to Achieve Performance Objectives
Author: J. William Helton,Matthew R. James
Category: H [infinity symbol] control
H-infinity control originated from an effort to codify classical control methods, where one shapes frequency response functions for linear systems to meet certain objectives. H-infinity control underwent tremendous development in the 1980s and made considerable strides toward systematizing classical control. This book addresses the next major issue of how this extends to nonlinear systems. At the core of nonlinear control theory lie two partial differential equations (PDEs). One is a first-order evolution equation called the information state equation, which constitutes the dynamics of the controller. One can view this equation as a nonlinear dynamical system. Much of this volume is concerned with basic properties of this system, such as the nature of trajectories, stability, and, most important, how it leads to a general solution of the nonlinear H-infinity control problem.
Analytical Periodic Flows and Chaos in Nonlinear Systems systematically presents a new approach to analytically determine the periodic flows and chaos in nonlinear dynamical systems. The new analytical technique presented in this book is based on Fourier Series theory and the coefficient variation method in differential equations to obtain an autonomous dynamical system of coefficients. To investigate such an autonomous system, the stable and unstable solutions of periodic motions and chaos can be obtained. The book covers the mathematical theory of analytical solutions of periodic flows and chaos in nonlinear dynamical systems, and includes many examples of nonlinear systems frequently encountered in engineering and physics. The analytical techniques in this book can provide a better understanding of regularity and complexity of periodic motions and chaos in nonlinear dynamical systems. The method is straightforward to learn for students and researchers in nonlinear dynamics.

This volume is based on the course notes of the 2nd NCN Pedagogical School, the second in the series of Pedagogical Schools in the frame work of the European TMR project, "Breakthrough in the control of nonlinear systems (Nonlinear Control Network)". The school consists of four courses that have been chosen to give a broad range of techniques for the analysis and synthesis of nonlinear control systems, and have been developed by leading experts in the field. The topics covered are: Differential Algebraic Methods in Nonlinear Systems; Nonlinear QFT; Hybrid Systems; Physics in Control. The book has a pedagogical character, and is specially directed to postgraduates in most areas of engineering and applied sciences like mathematics and physics. It will also be of interest to researchers and practitioners needing a solid introduction to the above topics.
The main purpose of this book is to provide a self-contained, complete and geometrically clear presentation of the recent results on global controllability and stabilization. It contains many pictures and exercises so as to develop a geometrical control intuition and inspire the reader to think independently. The material presented is organized such that for Part I, it is only assumed that the reader has mastered the very basic notions of ordinary differential equation theory, general topology and analytic geometry. For Part II, the reader is assumed to be familiar with the elements of differential geometry.
