Control of Nonlinear Dynamic Systems: Theory and Applications J. K. Hedrick and A. Girard © 2005 62 6 ` Controllability and Observability of Nonlinear Systems Controllability for Nonlinear Systems The Use of Lie Brackets: Definition Consider two vector fields f(x) and g(x) in n . Then the Lie bracket operation generates a new vector field: [ ] g x f f x g g f , Also, higher order Lie brackets can be defined: Key points Nonlinear observability is intimately tied to the Lie derivative. The Lie derivative is the derivative of a scalar function along a vector field. Nonlinear controllability is intimately tied to the Lie bracket. The Lie bracket can be thought of as the derivative of a vector field with respect to another.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
