In this chapter, we propose adaptive backstepping scheme to design decentralized output feedback adaptive controllers. For each subsystem, a general transfer function with arbitrary relative degree is considered. The interactions between subsystems are allowed to satisfy a nonlinear bound with certain structural conditions. The effects due to interactions are taken into consideration in devising local control laws. It is shown that perfect stabilization is ensured and the L2 norm of the system outputs is also shown to be bounded by a function of design parameters.
