Funnel control of nonlinear systems. - In: Mathematics of control, signals, and systems : MCSS.. - London : Springer, ISSN 1435-568X, Bd. 33 (2021), 1, S. 151-194
Tracking of reference signals is addressed in the context of a class of nonlinear controlled systems modelled by r-th-order functional differential equations, encompassing inter alia systems with unknown "control direction" and dead-zone input effects. A control structure is developed which ensures that, for every member of the underlying system class and every admissible reference signal, the tracking error evolves in a prescribed funnel chosen to reflect transient and asymptotic accuracy objectives. Two fundamental properties underpin the system class: bounded-input bounded-output stable internal dynamics, and a high-gain property (an antecedent of which is the concept of sign-definite high-frequency gain in the context of linear systems).

Finite rank perturbations of linear relations and singular matrix pencils. - Ilmenau : Technische Universität Ilmenau, Institut für Mathematik, 2018. - 1 Online-Ressource (25 Seiten). . - (Preprint. - M18,08)
We elaborate on the deviation of the Jordan structures of two linear relations that are finite-dimensional perturbations of each other. We compare the number of Jordan chains of length at least n corresponding to some eigenvalue to each other. In the operator case, it was recently proved that the difference of these numbers is independent of n and is at most the defect between the operators. One of the main results of this paper shows that in the case of linear relations this number has to be multiplied by n+1 and that this bound is sharp. The reason for this behaviour is the existence of singular chains. We apply our results to one-dimensional perturbations of singular and regular matrix pencils. This is done by representing matrix pencils via linear relations. This technique allows for both proving known results for regular pencils as well as new results for singular ones.

We study matrix pencils sE-A using the associated linear subspace ker[A,-E]. The distance between subspaces is measured in terms of the gap metric. In particular, we investigate the gap distance of a regular matrix pencil to the set of singular pencils and provide upper and lower bounds for it. A relation to the distance to singularity in the Frobenius norm is provided.
