Robustness is currently an active area of research in adaptive control. In the so-called ideal case, global stability of adaptive control systems can be established under certain ideal conditions, i.e. in noise-free processes without unmodeled dynamics, in spite of parametric uncertainty [2, 4, 11, 13]. However, it has been shown that these algorithms may become unstable in non ideal conditions [16].
