In the present book, impulsive systems have been studied on hybrid time domains. Various stability and control problems related to impulsive systems have been studied. Particular emphasis has been given to impulsive systems with time-delay and subject to delay-dependent impulsive effects. In this chapter, we highlight the contributions of this book, and suggest possible future research related to the topics considered in the book.
