In this paper developments in nonlinear controller synthesis techniques are surveyed. First, the use of functional analysis approach for system synthesis is discussed. Next, the application of intentional nonlinear controllers for performance improvement and optimization via performance index minimization is presented. This is followed by a discussion of signal stabilization using artificial dither. Finally, approaches are given for design of controllers to meet stability requirements for both single and multiple-loop nonlinear systems.
