Description Hybrid Systems V, Springer-Verlag Lecture Notes in Computer Science
We describe the Phase-Space Nonlinear Control Toolbox, a suite of computational tools for synthesizing and evaluating control laws for a broad class of nonlinear dynamical systems. The Toolbox comprises computational algorithms for identifying optimal control reference trajectories in the phase space of dynamical systems and experimental methods for evaluating performance of the control laws. These algorithms combine knowledge of the geometric theory of modern nonlinear dynamical systems with efficient computational methods for geometric reasoning and graph search; they define the properties of controllability and robustness in terms of phasespace geometric structures and exploit the phasespace neighborhood adjacencies to obtain computational efficiency. Compared to the traditional analytic control design methods, the phase-space based control synthesis and evaluation rely on high-performance computational techniques and are applicable to physical systems operating in large nonlinear r...
