What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Control theory
  • Mathematical analysis
  • Nonlinear system

Petar V. Kokotovic mainly focuses on Control theory, Nonlinear system, Adaptive control, Nonlinear control and Control theory. In his work, Automatic control is strongly intertwined with Control engineering, which is a subfield of Control theory. His work deals with themes such as Linear system and Mathematical optimization, which intersect with Nonlinear system.

His Adaptive control study incorporates themes from Control system, Parasitic extraction, Adaptive system and Robustness. His study in Adaptive system is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Strict-feedback form, Function and Dimension. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Bounded function and Dead zone.

His most cited work include:

  • Nonlinear and adaptive control design (6676 citations)
  • Singular Perturbation Methods in Control: Analysis and Design (1897 citations)
  • Systematic design of adaptive controllers for feedback linearizable systems (1561 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

His primary areas of study are Control theory, Nonlinear system, Adaptive control, Control engineering and Control system. His Nonlinear control, Control theory, Adaptive system, Linear system and Exponential stability study are his primary interests in Control theory. He focuses mostly in the field of Nonlinear control, narrowing it down to matters related to Feedback linearization and, in some cases, Linearization.

His Nonlinear system research incorporates themes from Singular perturbation and Mathematical optimization. The concepts of his Adaptive control study are interwoven with issues in Estimation theory, Bounded function and Backlash. His Control engineering study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Stability, Control and Actuator.
