This paper presents analysis and design results for control systems subject to oscillatory inputs, i.e., inputs of large amplitude and high frequency. The key analysis results are a series expansion characterizing the averaged system and various Liealgebraic conditions that guarantee the series can be summed. Various example systems provide insight into the results. With regards to design, we recover and extend a variety of point stabilization and trajectory tracking results using oscillatory controls. We present novel developments on stabilization of systems with positive trace and on tracking for second order underactuated systems.

iii In the past four years, perhaps the most important lesson I have learnt is that association with science in any form, getting a doctorate degree in my case, involves two parts. The first part, learning scientific facts and contributing to it, is something I have always enjoyed doing. Living a scientific life among an elite group of people in an exceptional place is the other part, and I did not have much of that experience before I came to Caltech. I was fortunate to enjoy the assistance, experience, support and friendship of many without whom I might not have been able finish this journey successfully. Here, I hope that I can express at least some part of my appreciation to all those who have helped my professional as well as personal life in the past few years. First of all, I want to thank my academic advisor and my friend, Prof. Ali Hajimiri. What I learned from him goes well beyond pure academics. His high level of energy, intuition, wisdom, and efficiency, admittedly too difficult to follow for many, is a major contributor to one of the most successful groups in the field. I would like to acknowledge his personal assistance during my admission to Caltech and for helping me in adapting to

This paper surveys a number of fundamental results on the existence and uniqueness of fixed points for certain classes of possibly nonlinear operators. I do not try to be exhaustive, but merely to present the results that are more useful in the context of signal and image reconstruction. Some specific aspects pertaining to linear operators, and linear operators in finite dimensional spaces, are also discussed. It is shown that the set of fixed points of a nonexpansive operator is either empty or convex. Under rather general conditions this shows that the minimum norm solution of an operator equation of the form x = Ax exists and is unique, provided that A is nonexpansive. This is a new result, which has interesting practical consequences in signal and image reconstruction problems and in other engineering applications.

We present a study on the critical time step for the numerical integration based on the RungeKutta method of the monodromy matrix (the fundamental matrix solution) associated with a set of n firstorder linear ordinary differential equations with periodic coefficients. By applying the LiapunovSchmidt method, for any dimension n and systems which are perturbations of autonomous systems, we give an approximation to the critical time step which involves the autonomous part as well as the periodic perturbation.

The theory of deterministic generalized viscoelastic linear and nonlinear 1D oscillators is formulated and evaluated. Examples of Du#ng, Mathieu, Rayleigh, Roberts and van der Pol oscillators and pendulum responses are investigated. The e#ects of structural damping on oscillator performance is also considered. Numerical solution protocols are developed and results are discussed to determined the influence of viscoelastic damping on oscillator motion. The numerical examples show that the inclusion of linear or nonlinear viscoelastic material properties significantly influence oscillator responses as related to amplitudes, phase shifts and energy loses when compared to equivalent elastic ones. Keywords : damping, Du#ng oscillator, integraldi#erential equations, Mathieu oscillator, nonlinear deterministic oscillators, numerical analysis, pendulum, Rayleigh, Roberts and van der Pol oscillators, structural damping, linear and nonlinear viscoelasticity 1 INTRODUCTION The study of 1DOF ...
