A self-contained introduction to algebraic control for nonlinear systems suitable for researchers and graduate students. 'Algebraic Methods for Nonlinear Control Systems' develops a linear-algebraic alternative to the usual differential-geometric approach to nonlinear control, using vector spaces over suitable fields of nonlinear functions. It describes a range of results, some of which can be derived using differential geometry but many of which cannot.
