Abstract : Over the past several years with support from AFOSR, we have been engaged in the development of theory and algorithms for control and estimation of highly nonlinear systems. The research has focused on several areas, nonlinear H-infinity control, nonlinear detectability and the solution of PDE's that arise in nonlinear control. We have developed necessary and sufficient conditions for nonlinear H-infinity control, necessary conditions for nonlinear detectability, a general theory of nonlinear observers and software for the term solution of some of the PDE's arising in nonlinear control and estimation.
