Adaptive Control Tutorial

Petros Ioannou and Barış Fidan


Adaptive control systems are time varying and nonlinear, thus more challenging to analyze and understand than traditional linear time invariant controllers. The stability proofs are often long and technical and possibly distracting to readers who prefer to focus on the design and implementation of adaptive control. For this reason we are placing the extensive and complicated proofs on this Web site so readers interested in the theory of adaptive control can access them.  The inclusion of these proofs makes the book complete in its treatment of adaptive control. 

Also supplementing each chapter are additional examples that use the adaptive control toolbox.  Putting them on this site enables us to further enrich the tutorial nature of the book and keep the book a reasonable length.
