dc.description.abstract"The transverse function approach to control provides a unified setting to deal with practical stabilization and tracking of arbitrary trajectories for controllable driftless systems. Controllers derived from that approach offer advantages over those based on more classical techniques for control of nonholonomic systems. Nevertheless, its extension to more general classes, such as critical underactuated mechanical systems, is not immediate. The present paper explores a possible extension by developing a framework that allows one to cast point stabilization problems for (left-invariant) second-order systems on Lie groups, including simple mechanical systems. The approach is based on "vertical transversality," a property exhibited by derivatives of transverse functions. In this paper, we lay out the theoretical foundations of our approach and present an example to illustrate some of its features."
