Tracking of reference signals y ref (·) by the output y(·) of linear (as well as a considerably large class of nonlinear) single-input, single-output system is considered. The system is assumed to have strict relative degree two with (" weak ") stable zero dynamics. The control objective is tracking of the error e = y − y ref and its derivative ˙ e within(More)
The main result establishes that if a controller C (comprising of a linear feedback of the output and its derivatives) globally stabilizes a (nonlinear) plant P , then global stabilization of P can also be achieved by an output feedback controller C[h] where the output derivatives in C are replaced by an Euler approximation with sufficiently small delay h >(More)
— For m-input, m-output, finite-dimensional, linear systems satisfying the assumptions (i) minimum phase, (ii) relative degree one and (iii) positive high-frequency gain), the funnel controller achieves output regulation in the following sense: all states of the closed-loop system are bounded and, most importantly, transient behaviour of the tracking error(More)
— We show that there exists a universal quantum Tur-ing machine (UQTM) that can simulate every other QTM until the other QTM has halted and then halt itself with probability one. This extends work by Bernstein and Vazirani who have shown that there is a UQTM that can simulate every other QTM for an arbitrary, but preassigned number of time steps. As a(More)
We define the relative degree of time-varying linear systems, show that it coincides with Isidori's and with Liberzon/Morse/Sontag's definition if the system is understood as a time-invariant nonlinear system, characterize it in terms of the system data and their derivatives, derive a normal form with respect to a time-varying linear coordinate(More)
Population managers will often have to deal with problems of meeting multiple goals, for example, keeping at specific levels both the total population and population abundances in given stage-classes of a stratified population. In control engineering, such set-point regulation problems are commonly tackled using multi-input, multi-output proportional and(More)
