Abstract

In this paper, the stabilization of a class of nonlinear systems using the associated angular method is studied. In this approach, the system is converted into two subsystems, the so-called radial and spherical subsystems in which the radial subsystem is first order and the dimension of spherical subsystem is the same as the original system. In many cases, a stabilizing control law can be directly obtained using the one-dimensional radial system dynamics. This control stabilizes the original system without any extra condition.
