Abstract-A new method is proposed for designing controllers
4 `Equilibrium Finding
Key points
Nonlinear systems may have a number of equilibrium points (from zero to infinity). These are obtained from the solution of n algebraic equations in n unknowns. The global implicit function theorem states conditi

Phase-Plane Analysis
Key points Phase plane analysis is limited to second-order systems. For second order systems, solution trajectories can be represented by curves in the plane, which allows for visualization of the qualitative behavior of t

General Properties of Linear and Nonlinear Systems
Key points Linear systems satisfy the properties of superposition and homogeneity. Any system that does not satisfy these properties is nonlinear. Linear systems have one equilibrium point a

1 `Introduction
Key points
Few physical systems are truly linear. The most common method to analyze and design controllers for system is to start with linearizing the system about some point, which yields a linear model, and then to use linear c
