Abstract

Some robust control problems for a class of nonlinear cascaded systems in the presence of state and input driven unmeasured dynamics are analyzed. A stepwise constructive control methodology is proposed on the basis of the recently established nonlinear small-gain theorem [15]. The flexibility of the approach in tackling dynamic uncertainties is illustrated by demonstrating that several results for special classes of cascaded systems, considered previously in the literature, may be viewed as special instances of the present results.
