On Measures of NonIntegrability of Pfaffian Systems 
Abstract 
Many problems in nonlinear control theory … Many problems in nonlinear control theory (like, for instance, feedback
linearization problem) lead to examination of integrability of a Pfaffian
system. In a generic case a Pfaffian system is not integrable. Therefore,
how to approximate nonintegrable Pfaffian systems by integrable ones and how
this approximation can be applied in practice appears to be a natural and
important problem. In the present paper we establish some measures of
nonintegrability of Pfaffian system of arbitrary dimension and discuss
their relation to approxiations of nonintegrable Pfaffian systems by
integrable ones. Our work is motivated by expected applications to
approximate feedback linearization of multiinput nonlinear systems. rization of multiinput nonlinear systems. +
