Part of the Progress in Systems and Control Theory book series (PSCT, volume 9)


This paper studies the asymptotic stabilization of two and three dimensional nonlinear control systems. In the two dimensional case we review some of our recent work and in the three dimensional case we give some new sufficient conditions and necessary conditions.
