PhD course on Nonlinear Control, (FRT025F)
Lecturers: Anders Rantzer, Anders Robertsson, Bo Bernhardsson
The course is open for all PhD students and gives 7.5 ECTS credits.
The goal of the course is to provide good knowledge and practice the ability to use classical as well as modern analysis and design methods for nonlinear control systems.
With a few exeptions, all lectures and exercise sessions are given in the seminar room at 1315-1500 on Tuesday and Fridays.
