# Conclusion

This book has described a general stability analysis and control design framework for large-scale dynamical systems, with an emphasis on vector Lyapunov function methods, vector dissipativity theory, and decentralized control architectures. The large-scale dynamical systems are composed of interconnected subsystems whose relationships are often circular, giving rise to feedback interconnections. This leads to nonlinear models that can exhibit rich dynamical behavior, such as multiple equilibria, limit cycles, bifurcations, jump resonance phenomena, and chaos. The book concludes by discussing the potential for applying and extending the results across disciplines, such as economic systems, network systems, computer networks, telecommunication systems, power grid systems, and road, rail, air, and space transportation systems.
