Bifurcation Control of Nonlinear Systems
Bifurcation control is discussed in the context of the stabilization of high angle-of-attach flight dynamics. Two classes of stabilization problems for which bifurcation control is useful are discussed. In the first class, ...
Feedback Stabilization via Center Manifold Reduction with Application to Tethered Satellites
Center manifold reduction has recently been introduced as a tool for design of stabilizing control laws for nonlinear systems in critical cases. In this dissertation, the center manifold approach is elaborated for general ...
