Nonlinear Analysis and Synthesis Techniques for Aircraft Control

Despite many signi?cant advances in the theory of nonlinear control in recent years, the majority of control laws implemented in the European aerospace - dustry are still designed and analysed using predominantly linear techniques applied to linearised models of the aircrafts’ dynamics. Given the co...
