Abstract : The design of stable model reference adaptive systems using the direct method of Lyapunov is considered in the report and many of the results obtained in recent years are presented in a unified manner. These results together with the recent work on adaptive observers make the entire approach a viable one for the identification and control of multivariable systems. In particular, they have proved effective in the control of VTOL aircraft systems and appear to be very attractive for many applications in process control. The results are first obtained assuming that the systems are time-invariant but they carry over relatively easily to the slowly time-varying case.
