We consider nonlinear systems in the strict-feedback form with simultaneous time-varying input and state delays, for which we design a predictor-based feedback controller. Our design is based on time-varying, infinite-dimensional backstepping transformations that we introduce, to convert the system to a globally asymptotically stable system. The solutions of the closed-loop system in the transformed variables can be found explicitly, which allows us to establish its global asymptotic stability. Based on the invertibility of the backstepping transformation, we prove global asymptotic stability of the closed-loop system in the original variables. Our design is illustrated by a numerical example.
