Geometric methods for nonlinear process control. 1. Background Academic Article uri icon


  • This is the first part of a review paper for geometric methods in nonlinear process control. We review here the mathematical and systems theory background, including linear results, tools from differential geometry, nonlinear inversion, and zero dynamics. The concept of feedback linearization of nonlinear systems is introduced at the end. © 1990, American Chemical Society. All rights reserved.
