Naira Hovakimyan and Chengyu Cao
This book presents a comprehensive overview of the recently developed L1 adaptive control theory, including detailed proofs of the main results. The key feature of the L1 adaptive control theory is the decoupling of adaptation from robustness. The architectures of L1 adaptive control theory have guaranteed transient performance and robustness in the presence of fast adaptation, without enforcing persistent excitation, applying gain-scheduling, or resorting to high-gain feedback.
• covers detailed proofs of the main results and also presents the flight test results that have used this theory and
• contains results not yet published in technical journals and conference proceedings.
This book is intended for graduate students; researchers; and aerospace, mechanical, chemical, industrial, and electrical engineers interested in pursuing new directions in research and developing technology at reduced costs.
