Abstract : The objective of the past research was the development of some mathematical and computational tools that are appropriate to the next generation of CACE (Computer-Aided-Control-Engineering) environments. These CACE packages will be radically different than the present analysis packages in that they will truly be able to perform control system synthesis. In order for this ideal situation to come about, it is necessary first to solve some important problems in the mathematics of control systems as well as in computational techniques. Phase I of the research program addressed the feasibility of solving some of the problems. Phase II will extend the results of Phase I as well as developing primitives for performing robust and adaptive control design. In particular, we will address the following control problems: (i) synthesis of linear control systems, (ii) analysis of transfer function estimation, (iii) analysis of parameter adaptive control, and (iv) language architecture for control design.
