The workshop on Control Mechanics, originated in 1988, beca- me an annual event and gained considerable recognition in advancing control of nonlinear and uncertain mechanical sy- tems and promoting application of advanced mechanics in con- trol. The fourth meeting continues the tradition with 17 papers containing original and recent work of the partici- pants developed in 3 basic directions: feed-back control of uncertain systems, flexible mechanical structures and flight control.
Lyapunov based control design for multiple robots handling a common object.- Optimal trajectories for hypersonic launch vehicles.- Reduced-order output feedback control of a class of uncertain systems.- Controllability of a Forkker-Planck equation, the Schrodinger system, and a related stochastic optimal control.- Stability robustness of linear feedback controlled flexible mechanical systems.- Predictive controller and estimator for nasa deep space network antennas.- Robust control synthesis for uncertain/nonlinear dynamical systems.- Observers for controllers with matched uncertainty in A, B and C matrices.- Parametric robust control by quantitative feedback theory.- On robustness of systems with structured uncertainties.- Discrete adaptive algorithms and neural network controllers for nonlinear dynamics.- Tracking and force control for a class of robotic manipulators.- Mutual reference adaptive control of nonlinear uncertain systems.- Adaptive identification and model tracking by a flexible spacecraft.- An investigation on antiseismic base-isolation and control.- Collision avoidance of two PR manipulators.- Regions of attraction for two dimensional uncertain dynamic systems.
