A systematic and unified presentation of the fundamentals of adaptive control theory in both continuous time and discrete time

Today, adaptive control theory has grown to be a rigorous and mature discipline. As the advantages of adaptive systems for developing advanced applications grow apparent, adaptive control is becoming more popular in many fields of engineering and science. Using a simple, balanced, and harmonious style, this book provides a convenient introduction to the subject and improves one's understanding of adaptive control theory.

Adaptive Control Design and Analysis features:

  • Introduction to systems and control
  • Stability, operator norms, and signal convergence
  • Adaptive parameter estimation
  • State feedback adaptive control designs
  • Parametrization of state observers for adaptive control
  • Unified continuous and discrete-time adaptive control
  • L1+a robustness theory for adaptive systems
  • Direct and indirect adaptive control designs
  • Benchmark comparison study of adaptive control designs
  • Multivariate adaptive control
  • Nonlinear adaptive control
  • Adaptive compensation of actuator nonlinearities
  • End-of-chapter discussion, problems, and advanced topics
As either a textbook or reference, this self-contained tutorial of adaptive control design and analysis is ideal for practicing engineers, researchers, and graduate students alike.
