Abstract : During this contract, the research has focused on a related but different topic: analysis of nonlinear and/or time-varying systems using quadratic Lyapunov functions and convex optimization. Most importantly, these methods extend to state feedback synthesis for nonlinear, time-varying, and uncertain systems, and so should prove extremely useful in many industrial control problems. (AN)
