An iterative approach to eigenvalue assignment for nonlinear systems

Tomas-Rodriguez, M. & Banks, S. P. (2013). An iterative approach to eigenvalue assignment for nonlinear systems. International Journal of Control, 86(5), pp. 883-892. doi: 10.1080/00207179.2013.765037


In this paper, the authors present a method for controlling a nonlinear system by using the ideas of eigenvalues assignment. A time-varying approach to nonlinear exponential stability via eigenvalue placement is studied based on an iteration technique that approaches a nonlinear system by a sequence of linear time varying equations. The convergent behaviour of this method is shown and applied to a practical nonlinear example in order to illustrate these ideas.
