In my dissertation, the problem of disturbance decoupling with stability for nonlinear systems using decentralized static state or output feedback is defined and solved using differential geometry as tool. In the past few years, differential geometry has proved to be an effective means of analysis and design of nonlinear control systems as it was in the past for the Laplace transform, complex variable theory and linear algebra in relation to linear systems. The geometric approach has proved to be very effective in simplifying and solving many problems in linear systems. A primary advantage of this approach is the formulation of the results in terms of very simple concepts that give the feeling of the problems not masked by heavy and misleading mathematics. Research Interest: Linear and nonlinear control system. Digital Signal Processing.
