In this chapter we apply perturbation methods to analyze the trajectories of forced affine connection control systems. We consider two types of control signals: periodic, large-amplitude, high-frequency signals, which we refer to as oscillatory; and small-amplitude signals. For both classes of signals, we perform a perturbation analysis that predicts, with some specified level of accuracy, the behavior of the resulting forced affine connection system.
