This book presents methods to study the controllability and the stabilization of nonlinear control systems in finite and infinite dimensions. Examples are given where nonlinearities turn out to be essential to get controllability or stabilization.

The lectures present an introduction to modern control theory. Calculus of variations is used to study the problem of determining the optimal control for a deterministic system without constraints and for one with constraints.
