Nonlinear Dynamical Systems and Control presents and develops an extensive treatment of stability analysis and control design of nonlinear dynamical systems, with an emphasis on Lyapunov-based methods. Dynamical system theory lies at the heart of mathematical sciences and engineering. The application of dynamical systems has crossed interdisciplinary boundaries from chemistry to biochemistry to chemical kinetics, from medicine to biology to population genetics, from economics to sociology to psychology, and from physics to mechanics to engineering. The increasingly complex nature of engineering systems requiring feedback control to obtain a desired system behavior also gives rise to dynamical systems.
Wassim Haddad and VijaySekhar Chellaboina provide an exhaustive treatment of nonlinear systems theory and control using the highest standards of exposition and rigor. This graduate-level textbook goes well beyond standard treatments by developing Lyapunov stability theory, partial stability, boundedness, input-to-state stability, input-output stability, finite-time stability, semistability, stability of sets and periodic orbits, and stability theorems via vector Lyapunov functions. A complete and thorough treatment of dissipativity theory, absolute stability theory, stability of feedback systems, optimal control, disturbance rejection control, and robust control for nonlinear dynamical systems is also given. This book is an indispensable resource for applied mathematicians, dynamical systems theorists, control theorists, and engineers.
"The book is lucid and well written and contains numerous worked examples for specific applications to important classes of systems as well as numerous problems and suggestions for further study at the end of the main chapters. This book will be an excellent source of reference materials for graduate students of applied mathematics, control theorists and engineers studying the stability theory of dynamical systems and controls. It will also be a rich source of materials for self study by researchers and practitioners interested in systems theory of engineering, controls, computer science, chemistry, life sciences and economics."--Olusola Akinyele, Mathematical Reviews
"An excellent textbook. This is an up-to-date, comprehensive, and extremely well presented exposition of modern methods in nonlinear control systems. It contains every topic I would like to see in such a book. The writing is superb and the style is clear and lucid. This is a highly welcome addition to the literature."--Frank L. Lewis, University of Texas, Arlington
"A significant contribution. This book can be used as a textbook for engineering students and others, and it is useful to researchers because it contains up-to-date methods and information. As far as I know, there is no one book that covers all the material contained in this book."--V. Lakshmikantham, Florida Institute of Technology
