In this paper, we derive sufficient conditions for the existence of a continuous time-varying feedback law that simultaneously locally or globally asymptotically stabilizes a finite family of nonlinear systems. We then focus on a class of pairs of nonlinear homogeneous systems, and by using the previous sufficient conditions, we establish their asymptotic stabilizability by means of time-varying feedback.

Modeling and Control of Dynamical Effects due to Impact on Flexible Structures Wei, Q. (1994)In the first part of this dissertation, we consider modeling and approximation of impact dynamics on flexible structures. A nonlinear model is developed through Hertz law of impact in conjunction with the dynamic equation ...
