Abstract : A method is proposed for the synthesis of an adaptive controller for a class of model reference systems in which the plant is not known exactly, but which is of the following type: single variable, time-varying, either linear or nonlinear, of n th-order, and capable of m th-order input differentiation. The model is linear, stable and of n'th-order, where (n-m) = or < n' = or < n. The only knowledge of the plant that is required in this synthesis procedure is the form of the plant equation and the bounds of the coefficient of the m th-order plant input derivative. (Author)
