Abstract : Stable Hybrid Model Reference Adaptive Control Algorithms are suggested which are then extended to deal with the presence of bounded disturbances. The question of unmodelled dynamics is also addressed. Simpler adaptive control algorithms are developed in the context of pole placement, by first considering systems with known parameters. Such algorithms do not require a minimum phase assumption. The foundation is laid for a much broader investigation of robust design methods for systems with structured uncertainties. (Author)
