Bifurcation control refers to the task of designing a controller that can modify the bifurcation properties of a given nonlinear system, so as to achieve some desirable dynamical behaviors. There exists no similar control theory-oriented book available in the market that is devoted to the subject of bifurcation control, written by control engineers for control engineers. World-renowned leading experts in the field provide their state-of-the-art survey about the extensive research that has been done over the last few years in this subject. The book is not only aimed at active researchers in the field of bifurcation control and its applications, but also at a general audience in related fields.
