Nonlinear Control Systems : Alberto Isidori :

The first version of this book was written inwhile I was teach- ing at the Department of Systems Science and Mathematics at Washington University in St. The approach consists of a rigorous mathematical formulation contol control problems and respective methods of solution. Amateur Telescope Making Stephen F.

The main intuition of Isidori was to use differential geometric methods in the synthesis of feedback laws for nonlinear systems, more or less in thitd same way as linear geometric methods were used in the synthesis of feedback laws for linear systems.

Flockerzi, Berkhauserpp. Sincehe has also held a position of rofessor on a half-time basis at the Department of Systems Science and Mathematics, Washington University, St. Dispatched from the UK in 3 business days When will my order arrive? There is no universal solvent for nonlinear control problems, but the methods presented here are powerful. Photo-guide to the Constellations C.

The result of this seminal work was the development of systematic methods addressing outstanding design problems like feedback linearization, noninteracting control, disturbance decoupling, and model matching.

The two appendices outline the most important concepts of isidor geometry and present some specific data not often found in other standard works. This makes Nonlinear Control Systems suitable as a graduate and undergraduate text and as a source of reference.


Isidori’s book is essential for anyone preparing for serious reading or basic research in the differential geometric approach to control theory and will not disappoint those mathematically trained. The book is intended as a graduate text as weil as a reference to scientists and engineers involved in the analysis and design of feedback systems.

The Sun contro, Eclipse Michael Maunder. From to Isidori’s research concentrated on the development of the “nonlinear analogue” of the notion of the “zero” of a transfer function.

This new edition integrates my subsequent teaching experience gained at the University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign inat the Carl-Cranz Gesellschaft in Oberpfaffenhofen in tird, at the University of California in Berkeley in In he obtained a degree equivalent to a doctorate in automatic control from the University of Rome.

As a result, it was shown that most of the features of the notion of zeros of the transfer function of a linear system are actually manifestations of more general principles. Global Decompositions of Control Aalberto.

I have observed its use in the hands of two teachers other than the author; the students enjoyed it and made good use of it later. The Best Books of Description The purpose of sdition book is to present a self-contained description of the fun- damentals of the theory of nonlinear control systems, with special emphasis on the differential geometric approach.

Nonlinear Control Systems

He graduated in electrical engineering from the University of Rome in Trends in Control Theory editorSpringer Verlagpp. Back cover copy This established and authoritative text focuses on the design and analysis of nonlinear control systems. Geometric Theory of Nonlinear Systems: In addition to a major rearrangement of the last two Chapters of the first version, this new edition incorporates two isidroi Chapters at a more elementary level and an exposition of some relevant research findings which have occurred since Remarkable examples of application of this theory consisted in the study and the solution of the nonlinear equivalent of the so-called “servomechanism problem” of linear system theory and in the characterization of the conditions for feedback equivalence to a nonlinear passive system.


Since the 90s, Isidori has focused his research interests on problems of disturbance attenuation and robust stabilization of nonlinear systems. InAlberto Isidori initiated a research program aimed at the extension of so-called “geometric theory” of multivariable linear systems, pioneered in the early s by various authors,to linear systems.

Local Decompositions of Control Systems. Linear algebra and linear geometric methods were replaced in nonlinear systems by the methods of differential geometry, whose usefulness in the study of controllability, observability, and minimality of nonlinear systems had been demonstrated in the early 70s.

Examples are given from aystems, electrical and aerospace engineering. Topics in Control Theory, with W. His research interests are primarily focused on mathematical control theory and control engineering. Delli Priscoli, Birkhauserpp. Home Contact Us Help Free delivery worldwide.
