The so-called "adaptive control problem" has received attention by theoreticians and practitioners alike for the past twenty-five years. Elegant and useful theoretical advances have been made in the last decade, and especially in the past three years, that have unified diverse approaches. However, despite the fact that the central question of global asymptotic stability of the overall feedback adaptive loop has been resolved for a substantial class of adaptive controllers--at least in the… CONTINUE READING
