Infinite dimensional systems are ubiquitous in nature, and applications such as flow control, aeroelasticity and efficient temperature control are of much contemporary interest. Even large multi-agent systems can be conveniently represented, in the limit, as infinite dimensional systems. In this talk, I will present some of our work that serves to highlight characteristics unique to these systems and how these may be conveniently exploited for control design and analysis. I will start by talking about systems with a finite relative degree, and how output feedback can enhance their stability. Next, I will talk about a dyadic adaptive control framework which emerged from our attempts to derive boundary control laws for flexible aircraft. Finally, I will present recent results for a class of systems with non-coercive Lyapunov functions.
