Abstract : The focus of this research was primarily feedback stabilization of distributed parameter systems. The principal investigator derived feedback operators for a general class of distributed systems, which include flexible beams, under the constraint of bounded control. Six papers were published, including Feedback Stabilization in Hilbert Space. Feedback laws are found for control systems governed by partial differential equations. In particular those control systems which give the dynamics of aeroelastic systems have been of particular interest.
