Nonlinear Systems: Asymptotic Methods, Stability, Chaos, Control, and Optimization

Description

The area of nonlinear systems and control has expanded dramatically in the past fifty years. The striking developments can be credited to the increasing computing capability of the recent years which made it a lot easier to model and study real-world complex problems. On the other hand, to approach complex problems properly, it is convenient to put together a team of researchers with a wide range of backgrounds and common interests. This is exactly what the Brazilian Conference on Dynamics, Control, and Applications intends to do. Taking the advantage of this opportunity, this special issue proposes to put together a set of high-quality papers from the works presented in the conference, selected thorough a rigorous reviewing process by independent specialists. Contributions dealing with theoretical and/or numerical aspects of one or more of the following themes: asymptotic methods in nonlinear dynamics, stability of dynamical systems, control and optimization, nonlinear dynamics, chaos and synchronization, control and intelligent systems applications, and aeronautical systems: dynamics and control are welcome.
