Nonlinear control systems: An introduction. (English) Zbl 0569.93034

Lecture Notes in Control and Information Sciences, 72. Berlin etc.: Springer-Verlag. VI, 297 p. DM 45.00 (1985).
From the author’s preface: ”This volume was planned as a textbook for a graduate course on nonlinear multivariable feedback systems. Most of it was prepared while the author was teaching a similar course at the Department of Systems Sciences and Mathematics of the Washington University in St. Louis, in the 1983 fall semester. The purpose of the volume is to present a self-contained description of the fundamentals of the theory of nonlinear feedback control systems, with special emphasis on the differential-geometric approach.”
