hybrid systems


This article will present a general framework for modeling hybrid control systems and studying their dynamical properties. It will put forth basic tools for studying asymptotic stability properties of hybrid systems. Then, particular aspects of hybrid control will be described, as well as approaches to control objectives that can be successfully achieved via hybrid control even if they are not solvable with classical methods.
