Recursive designs

Part of the Communications and Control Engineering book series (CCE)


Feedback passivation designs, which have been successful for the cascade structures in Chapters 4 and 5, will now be extended to larger classes of nonlinear systems. The common idea of the two main recursive procedures in this chapter, backstepping and forwarding, is to apply a passivation design to a small part of the system, and then to reapply it step-by-step by augmenting the sub-system at each step. The design is completed when the augmentations recover the whole system.
