Principal Tangent Sytem Reduction,

  • Arthur J. Krener
  • Thomas Hunt


We have outlined a new method of model reduction for nonlinear control systems. The advantages of this new approach are that it is not a local method and it is not an analytic method. All it requires is numerical code that can simulate the system. Further development of this method is needed and we will report on that in future publications.
