Part of the Texts in Applied Mathematics book series (TAM, volume 49)


In this chapter we design oscillatory control laws to solve stabilization and tracking problems for forced affine connection control systems. The objective is to exploit the averaging analysis obtained in Chapter 9 for the purpose of control design. In particular, we shall present results on stabilization and tracking that are applicable to systems that are not linearly controllable. As in the perturbation analysis in Chapter 9, we shall consider smooth systems.
