Workshops on Control Mechanics have been held annually since 1988 at the University of Southern California, with participants coming from the USA, Canada, Australia, the UK, Sweden, France, Germany and the USSR. This volume is dedicated to G. Leitmann, one of the founders of the study of dynamics of uncertain systems. The three topics examined deal with the general control theory of uncertain systems, with new theoretic methods in control and with various applications concerned with the control of robotic manipulators, aircraft control and flexible structures. The book is intended to be of use to engineers, scientists and specialists in applied mathematics.
