This page is a substitute for the real page 2, the signature page. I am inserting it so that subsequent page numbers will appear on the correct side in the top margin. iii ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS First of all, I would like to express my deep gratitude to my advisor, Professor Roger W. Brockett of Harvard University. His boundless knowledge has made it possible for me to write this thesis, and his unfailing enthusiasm has made it impossible not to write it. I consider myself extremely lucky to have had… 

Quantized Sampled-Data Feedback Stabilization for Linearand Nonlinear Control

TLDR
A new control strategy which uses quantized sampled data of the states with quan-tizer sensitivities that vary as the system evolves is proposed, which globally exponentially stabilizes the systems.

" Switching Systems and Control " by Daniel Liberzon

TLDR
This book will especially appeal to control theorists who want to explore the discrete nature of some variables to simplify the analysis and design of nonlinear systems.

Quantized feedback stabilization of linear systems

TLDR
A new control design methodology is proposed, which relies on the possibility of changing the sensitivity of the quantizer while the system evolves, which yields global asymptotic stability.

Spectral Analysis of Fokker--Planck and Related Operators Arising From Linear Stochastic Differential Equations

TLDR
The spectrum of the Fokker--Planck operator is completely described on an appropriate invariant subspace of rapidly decaying functions to provide information about the speed of convergence of the corresponding probability distribution to steady state, important for stochastic estimation and control applications.

Nonlinear feedback systems perturbed by noise: steady-state probability distributions and optimal control

TLDR
A class of nonlinear feedback systems perturbed by white noise is described for which explicit formulas for steady-state probability densities can be found and relationships with Lyapunov functions for the corresponding deterministic systems are established.

Classical control theory is concerned with the topics in our title in the context of single-input/single-output systems. There is now a large and growing literature on the extension of these ideas to

Systems with finite communication bandwidth constraints. II. Stabilization with limited information feedback

TLDR
A new class of feedback control problems is introduced, which cannot be asymptotically stabilized if the underlying dynamics are unstable, and a weaker stability concept called containability is introduced.

Control of Continuous Plants by Symbolic Output Feedback

TLDR
It is shown that, if certain observability conditions hold, the continuous plant state can be reconstructed from a sequence of measurement events and can be transferred to any desired point in IRn by applying a suitable sequence of control events.

Stabilizing a linear system with quantized state feedback

The problem of stabilizing an unstable, time-invariant, discrete-time, linear system by means of state feedback when the measurements of the state are quantized is addressed. It is found that there
