Abstract:

The objectives of this work are 1 to develop a robust stability theory for hybrid dynamical systems, both in continuous time and discrete time, including a complete theory on the existence of smooth Lyapunov functions which are the major workhorse for the analysis of non-hybrid dynamical systems for hybrid systems 2 to exploit this theory in developing tools for the design of robust feedback control algorithms for hybrid dynamical systems and 3 to apply the developed control concepts to problems relevant to the Armys mission, ie.g., autonomous vehicles and network centric control.
