This work was undertaken in order to gain a more fundamental understanding of the control of distributed parameter systems, with emphasis on the control of flexible aerodynamic vehicles. The main effort was on the development of a control theory for distributed parameter systems rather than the development of techniques for approximating distributed parameter systems by lumped parameter systems for which existing control theory is applicable.
