About this book


This edited book aims at presenting current research activities in the field of robust variable-structure systems. The scope equally comprises highlighting novel methodological aspects as well as  presenting the use of variable-structure techniques in industrial applications including their efficient implementation on hardware for real-time control. The target audience primarily comprises research experts in the field of control theory and nonlinear dynamics but the book may also be beneficial for graduate students.


Continuous-Time and discrete-time systems Finite-dimensional dynamic systems with bounded uncertainty Interval analysis for stability Lyapunov techniques Robust control Robustness and sensitivity analysis Sliding modes for control and estimation
