"A spark ignition (SI) engine can be described by non-strict feedback nonlinear discrete-time system with the output dependent upon on the states in a nonlinear manner. The controller developed in this thesis utilizes the inherent universal approximation property of neural networks (NN) to simplify the design process and solve the non-causality problem inherent with traditional designs. It also exploits a long-term performance index called the strategic utility function to minimize and assist in updating of the NN weights; therefore, an optimal controller can be realized. Finally, through Lyapunov equations, the controller guarantees stability"--Abstract, page iv.
