Abstract : This project concentrated on issues of nonlinear control design, with an emphasis on digital systems and symbolic methods. One area of effort was that of studying the effect of the use of sampling on the controllability and observability of nonlinear continuous systems as well as on recently developed linearization techniques. This is closely related to work on discrete-time controllability, also in progress under the grant. Another area dealt with a new method for automatic gain scheduling, for which a computerized design is now available. Experimental results are also described. Keywords: Sampling discrete time control systems.
