Stabilization of Nonlinear Systems via State Feedback

  • Alberto IsidoriEmail author
Part of the Advanced Textbooks in Control and Signal Processing book series (C&SP)


This chapter considers single-input single-output nonlinear systems that can be brought, by change of coordinates, to a special form having essentially the same structure as the normal form of a linear system. For such systems, it is also possible to define concepts and properties which identify a class of systems that can be seen as a nonlinear analogue of the class of linear system having all zeros with negative real part. This makes it possible to systematically develop stabilization methods that, in various forms, extend to nonlinear systems the stabilization methods presented in Chap.  2.
