Control and Nonlinearity

Number of pages: 444
This book presents methods to study the controllability and the stabilization of nonlinear control systems in finite and infinite dimensions. The emphasis is put on specific phenomena due to nonlinearities. In particular, many examples are given where nonlinearities turn out to be essential to get controllability or stabilization. Various methods are presented to study the controllability or to construct stabilizing feedback laws. The power of these methods is illustrated by numerous examples coming from such areas as celestial mechanics, fluid mechanics, and quantum mechanics.

These notes are an overview of some aspects of optimal and robust control theory considered relevant to quantum control. The notes cover classical deterministic optimal control, classical stochastic and robust control, and quantum feedback control.

The authors reduce a wide variety of problems arising in system and control theory to a handful of optimization problems that involve linear matrix inequalities. These problems can be solved using recently developed numerical algorithms.
