Nonlinear Control Systems (EE 60580)University of Notre Dame

Description: This is a graduate level course in nonlinear control systems that are, primarily, realized as systems of nonlinear ordinary differential equations (ODEs). The course is an indepth investigation of methods from ordinary differential equations, stability concepts, nonlinear regulators, and the control of bifurcations. The prerequisites for this course are undergraduate level courses in advanced calculus and ordinary differential equations. An undergraduate level course in signals/systems and a graduate level course in linear systems theory would also be useful. The course will also make use of MATLAB and convex optimization packages (YALMIP/SDPT3).
