Le nouveau Cherche et trouve de Little Urban, aussi coloré, déjanté et diablement amusant que le premier (A la recherche de la Carotte bleue), en très très grand format pour le plaisir de tout-petits !!! (Et des plus grands, qui trouvera en premier ?)
This book incorporates recent advances in the design of feedback laws to the purpose of globally stabilizing nonlinear systems via state or output feedback. It is a continuation of the first volume by Alberto Isidori on " Nonlinear Control Systems ". Specifically this second volume will cover : stability analysis of interconnected nonlinear systems. The notion of Input-to-State stability and its role in analysing stability of cascade-connected or feedback-connected systems. The notion of dissipativity and its consequences. Robust stabilization in the case of parametric uncertainties. Global, semi-global or practical semi-global stabilization. Design of state feedback and output feedback laws. Robust stabilization in the case of unstructured perturbations. Disturbance attenuation and almost disturbance decoupling. Global Stabilization using bounded controls. Normal forms for multi-input multi-output nonlinear systems from a global point of view. Their role in feedback design. The " Communications and Control Engineering Series " reflects the major technological advances which have a great impact in the fields of communication and control. It reports on the research in industrial and academic institutions around the world to exploit the view possibilities which are becoming available.
