Projection Operator

Projection Operator

 

an operator in n-dimensional Euclidean or infinite-dimensional Hilbert space that associates every vector x with its projection on some fixed subspace. For example, if H is a space of square integrable functions f(t) on the closed interval [a, b] and x(t) is the characteristic function of some closed interval [c, d] within [a, b], the mapping f(t) → X(t)f(t) is a projection operator that projects all of H onto the subspace of functions that vanish outside [c, d]. Every projection operator P is self-adjoint and satisfies the condition P2 = P. Conversely, if P is a self-adjoint operator and P2 = P, P is a projection operator. The concept of a projection operator plays an important role in the spectral analysis of linear operators in Hilbert space.

The contributions of this paper are (1) a flight controller design that inherits the merits of the backstepping approach, thus solving the unmatched control problem of cargo airdrop; (2) the introduction of adaptation theories to estimate the system uncertainties, which overcomes the conservative drawbacks of [8-11] as discussed above; (3) the formation of adaptation laws using the projection operator to bound the estimated functions and theoretically guarantee the robustness of the controller against time-varying disturbances and uncertainties while avoiding singularity of the control law; and (4) a proof of the convergence properties and robustness of the control method based on Lyapunov theory.
