Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Constructive nonlinear control design has undergone rapid and significant progress over the last three decades. In this paper, a review of recent results in this important field is presented with a focus on interdisciplinary topics at the interface of control, computing and communications. In particular, it is shown that the nonlinear small-gain theory provides a unified framework for solving problems of quantized feedback stabilization and event-triggered control for nonlinear systems. Some open questions in quantized and networked nonlinear control systems are discussed.
