 Course Outline:
This is a first course to nonlinear system theory,
and is designed mainly for graduate students.
The objective of this course is to let students
have a different view to the behavior of a general system.
In this course, we will introduce various methods of describing
nonlinear systems as well as ways of analyzing some of their
intrinsic properties in a qualitative manner.
The prerequisite for this course is control system theory or
linear system theory.
Whoever is interested in general system theory may find this course suitable.
The course outline will be roughly the following：
 Second Order Systems
 Nonlinear Differential Equations
 Lyapunov Stability Theory
 InputOutput Stability
 Feedback Linearization (?)
