Google full text of this book:

Hybrid dynamical systems exhibit continuous and instantaneous changes, having features of continuous-time and discrete-time dynamical systems. Filled with a wealth of examples to illustrate concepts, this book presents a complete theory of robust asymptotic stability for hybrid dynamical systems that is applicable to the design of hybrid control algorithms--algorithms that feature logic, timers, or combinations of digital and analog components.

With the tools of modern mathematical analysis, Hybrid Dynamical Systems unifies and generalizes earlier developments in continuous-time and discrete-time nonlinear systems. It presents hybrid system versions of the necessary and sufficient Lyapunov conditions for asymptotic stability, invariance principles, and approximation techniques, and examines the robustness of asymptotic stability, motivated by the goal of designing robust hybrid control algorithms.

This self-contained and classroom-tested book requires standard background in mathematical analysis and differential equations or nonlinear systems. It will interest graduate students in engineering as well as students and researchers in control, computer science, and mathematics.


"The book is carefully written and contains many examples. It will be a good resource for both researchers already familiar with hybrid systems and those starting from scratch."--Daniel Liberzon, Mathematical Reviews Clippings

"The book presents a clean and self-contained exposition of hybrid systems, starting from the elementary definitions, continuing with the basic tools and finishing with more recent contributions in the literature."--Marco Castrillon Lopez, European Mathematical Society


"This superb book unifies some of the key developments in hybrid dynamical systems from the last decade and, through elegant and clear technical content, introduces the necessary tools for understanding the stability of these systems. It will be a great resource for graduate students and researchers in the field."--Magnus Egerstedt, Georgia Institute of Technology

"With broad applications for science and engineering, this first-rate book develops solid foundations for a comprehensive theory of hybrid dynamical systems. Diverse literature is brought together for the first time, making a huge body of knowledge conveniently accessible."--Dennis S. Bernstein, University of Michigan
