An adaptive method for improved cost performance in nonlinear Lyapunov-based design is presented. The method is based on the idea of Lyapunov optimizing control [6] and is descrete in nature. The goal of this method is to improve cost performance in nonlinear systems when Lyapunov-based stabilizing controllers are used. The method takes advantage of Lyapunov stability techniques while adaptively choosing descent directions to provide a reduction in cost.
