The main goal of this course is to provide to the students a solid background in analysis and design of nonlinear control systems.
At the end of this course, the students should master the concepts introduced in the sessions and apply them to the analysis of nonlinear systems as well as to the design of control schemes for such systems.
This course covers the analysis and design of nonlinear control systems and is suitable for post-graduate students in science and engineering. The course begins with an introduction to nonlinear system theory and stability analysis. The last part of the course is dedicated to nonlinear control design tools such as feedback linearization, sliding mode control, Lyapunov redesign, backstepping, passivity based control and nonlinear adaptive control. Emphasis is placed upon application of the theory to systems of interest to the students.
Basic knowledge of calculus, linear algebra and ordinary differential equations is assumed.

The following two types of projects are possible in this course:
- Solution of a research problem relevant to the student’s area of research, which makes use of methods described in the course.
- Independent study of a topic not covered in-depth in class (e.g., reading a paper or book chapter).
