Abstract : During the period of this grant, topics investigated included: nonlinear white noise theory; stabilization of distributed parameter systems by boundary feedback; system modeling and identification; control of flexible flight vehicles; random fields--filtering and estimation; control of randomly varying systems; and control of large space structures. Thirty technical papers were produced with titles including: Active control of airfoils in unsteady aerodynamics; Identification of aircraft parameters in turbulence with nonrational spectra; Aircraft performance modelling--Theory and some preliminary results; and Active control of large flexible space structures.
