    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    The controllability theory may at times lead to a control law as can be seen in the control theory literature. In this paper, a global control algorithm is proposed for nonlinear systems in the sc-called linear-analytic form in the plane. The algorithm is motivated by a theorem by Hunt, which gives sufficient conditions for the global controllability of linear-analytic systems on a 2-dimensional manifold. It is verified that the algorithm is globally convergent under the given assumptions. A computational form of the algorithm is presented. Some computational aspects are also discussed.
