Remarks on the Stabilizability of Nonlinear Systems by Smooth Feedback

  • Dirk Aeyels
Part of the Progress in Systems and Control Theory book series (PSCT, volume 2)


In this paper we discuss the known result that if a system is smoothly stabilizable then adding an integrator does not change this property. For this extended system stabilizing feedbacks depending on data explicitly available from the original system are proposed.
