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.
