Controllability of nonlinear systems with restrained controls. (English) Zbl 0268.93005

Summary: In this paper, we examine the controllability of nonlinear differential systems which are perturbations of systems of the form \(x=A(t)x+g(t, u)\). Under appropriate assumptions, we show that integrably bounded perturbations preserve the controllability properties of the base system in the case when the control values are restrained. Our approach is based on the necessary and sufficient growth condition for controllability developed earlier by the author.
