Paper Abstract

This paper highlights some of the new contributions nonlinear dynamics has made in the areas of control and tracking. In particular, emphasis is placed on the model independent approach to control and tracking: The connections between the classical control and the control based on time series embedding methods are made. In experiments of control, our approach does not necessarily imply new equipment is needed in the loop. Rather, it is the control settings which are constructed off-line so that location of the control point and gain are determined without trial and error. Using the model independent approach also allows one to locate and control many other accessible unstable phenomena without having to construct a global nonlinear model. Tracking gives a constructive approach to control inaccessible states, as well as maps out the global regions of phase space.
