A feedback design procedure known as extended linearization consists in replacing a mathematical model of a nonlinear dynamical system with its family of linearizations, parametrized by the operating point, and then combining feedback gains designed for representatives of the family into a single nonlinear feedback law.

The principles of the procedure, applicable both to lumped-parameter and distributed-parameter systems, are discussed at the outset. The development shows limits on feedback laws that can be designed, as well as nonuniqueness of solutions, inherent in the method.
