Geometric Theory of State Feedback: Tools
The purpose of the next two Chapters is to analyze in a more general differential-geometric (and coordinate-free) setup some of the most important concepts and design methodologies which have been introduced in Chapters 4 and 5. For convenience, we present in this Chapter the fundamental geometric tools, zero dynamics and controlled invariant distributions, on which the analysis is based, and we defer to Chapter 7 the illustration of how these tools can be used in the solution of specific control problems.
