A problem of guaranteed control is under discussion. This problem consists in the attainment of a given target set by a phase trajectory of a system described by an equation with time delay. An uncontrolled disturbance (along with a control) is assumed to act upon the system. An algorithm for solving the problem in the case when information on a phase trajectory is incomplete (measurements of a 'part' of coordinates) is designed. The algorithm is stable with respect to informational noises and computational...

We consider real analytic finite-dimensional control problems with a scalar input that enters linearly in the evolution equations. We prove that, whenever it is possible to steer a state x to another state y by means of a measurable control, then it is possible to steer x to y by means of a control that has an extra regularity property, namely, that of being analytic on an open dense subset of its interval of definition. Since open dense sets can have very small measure, this is a very weak property....

Geometric control theory and Riemannian techniques are used to describe the reachable set at time t of left invariant single-input control systems on semi-simple compact Lie groups and to estimate the minimal time needed to reach any point from identity. This method provides an effective way to give an upper and a lower bound for the minimal time needed to transfer a controlled quantum system with a drift from a given initial position to a given final position. The bounds include diameters...

We analyze the controllability of the wave equation on a cylinder when the control acts on the boundary, that does not satisfy the classical geometric control condition. We obtain precise estimates on the analyticity of reachable functions. As the control time increases, the degree of analyticity that is required for a function to be reachable decreases as an inverse power of time. We conclude that any analytic function can be reached if that control time is large enough. In the C∞ class, a...

We describe precisely, under generic conditions, the contact of the accessibility set at time $T$ with an abnormal direction, first for a single-input affine control system with constraint on the control, and then as an application for a sub-riemannian system of rank 2. As a consequence we obtain in sub-riemannian geometry a new splitting-up of the sphere near an abnormal minimizer $\gamma $ into two sectors, bordered by the first Pontryagin’s cone along $\gamma $, called the ${\mathrm{L}}^{\infty}$-sector and the ${\mathrm{L}}^{2}$-sector. Moreover we...

As a consequence we obtain in sub-Riemannian geometry a new splitting-up of the sphere near an abnormal minimizer γ into two sectors, bordered by the first Pontryagin's cone along γ, called the L∞-sector and the L2-sector.

A nonlinear discrete-time control system forced by stochastic disturbances is considered. We study the problem of synthesis of the regulator which stabilizes an equilibrium of the deterministic system and provides required scattering of random states near this equilibrium for the corresponding stochastic system. Our approach is based on the stochastic sensitivity functions technique. The necessary and important part of the examined control problem is an analysis of attainability. For 2D systems,...

We propose a direct approach to obtain the boundary stabilization of the isotropic linear elastodynamic system by a natural feedback; this method uses local coordinates in the expression of boundary integrals as a main tool. It leads to an explicit decay rate of the energy function and requires weak geometrical conditions: for example, the spacial domain can be the difference of two star-shaped sets.

In this paper we extend some basic results on the controllability and observability of linear discrete-time fractional-order systems. For both of these fundamental structural properties we establish some new concepts inherent to fractional-order systems and we develop new analytical methods for checking these properties. Numerical examples are presented to illustrate the theoretical results.
