Book:
Z. Chen and J. Huang, Stabilization and
Regulation of Nonlinear Systems, A Robust and Adaptive Approach, Series
of Advanced Textbooks in Control and Signal Processing, Springer, 2015.
ISBN 9783319088334.
v
Integrated approach to teaching
stateoftheart methods for dealing with central problems of nonlinear
control
v
Every design method illustrated
in detail not only by worked examples, but also by real systems
v
Many exercises are provided to
facilitate study and learning
v
Solutions available for download
save the instructor time
The core of this textbook is a systematic and selfcontained treatment
of the nonlinear stabilization and output regulation problems. Its
coverage embraces both fundamental concepts and advanced research outcomes
and includes many numerical and practical examples. Several classes of
important uncertain nonlinear systems are discussed. The stateofthe art
solution presented uses robust and adaptive control design ideas in an
integrated approach which demonstrates connections between global
stabilization and global output regulation allowing both to be treated as
stabilization problems.
Stabilization and Regulation of Nonlinear
Systems takes advantage of rich new
results to give students uptodate instruction in the central design
problems of nonlinear control, problems which are a driving force behind
the furtherance of modern control theory and its application. The diversity
of systems in which stabilization and output regulation become
significant concerns in the mathematical formulation of practical control
solutions—whether in disturbance rejection in flying vehicles or
synchronization of Lorenz systems with harmonic systems—makes the
text relevant to readers from a wide variety of backgrounds. Many exercises
are provided to facilitate study and solutions are freely available to
instructors via a download from springerextras.com.
Striking a balance between rigorous
mathematical treatment and engineering practicality,Stabilization and Regulation of Nonlinear
Systems is an ideal text for graduate students from many
engineering and appliedmathematical disciplines seeking a contemporary
course in nonlinear control. Practitioners and academic theorists will
also find this book a useful reference on recent thinking in this field.
