ECE 6740 - Nonlinear Control Systems

This is a first course in nonlinear systems. Students will learn to characterize nonlinear phenomena such as limit cycles and chaotic behavior, both analytically and numerically. Students will also delve into the world of strange attractors and fractals. All this will be applied to a number of engineering, mechanical, biological and chemical problems. Specifically, students will consider the family nonlinear control problems (such as the inverted pendulum) and chaotic communication systems ( such as the Cummo and Chua circuits).

Prerequisites/Corequisites: Prerequisite: ECE 5710

Credits: 3 hours

Notes: Open to Graduate Students only.
