Following Demidovich’s concept and definition of convergent systems, we analyze the optimal nonlinear damping control, recently proposed [1] for the second-order systems. Targeting the problem of output regulation, correspondingly tracking of C1-trajectories, it is shown that all solutions of the control system are globally uniformly asymptotically stable. The existence of the unique limit solution in the origin of the control error and its time derivative coordinates are shown in the sense of…

Contractive Systems with Inputs
Contraction theory provides an elegant way of analyzing the behaviors of systems subject to external inputs. Under sometimes easy to check hypotheses, systems can be shown to have the incremental
On Contraction Analysis for Non-linear Systems
These results may be viewed as generalizing the classical Krasovskii theorem, and, more loosely, linear eigenvalue analysis, and the approach is illustrated by controller and observer designs for simple physical examples.
Nonlinear Control Systems
Feedback control theory is concerned with the analysis and design of nonlinear control systems where nonlinearity plays a significant role, either in the controlled process (plant) or in the controller itself.

The aim is to present a framework for understanding questions of incremental stability fully compatible with the well-known input-to-state stability approach.

Nonlinear Output Regulation: Theory and Applications
This chapter explains the development of a method for the nonlinear output regulation of singular nonlinear systems and some examples show how this regulation changed from linear to discrete-time systems over time.
Convergent dynamics, a tribute to Boris Pavlovich Demidovich
Demidovich's approach forms a prelude to a field which is now called incremental stability of dynamical systems, and developments on incremental stability are reviewed from a historical perspective.
