Methods of control for nonlinear systems, especially:
  • stability of nonlinear systems, Lyapunov theory, comparison functions, input-to-state stability (ISS),
  • linearization and normal forms of nonlinear systems,
  • various control concepts, e.g. backstepping, predictive control, sliding mode control, flatness-basedcontrol,
  • nonlinear observers.
