Fault tolerant control (FTC) is the branch of control theory,
dealing with the control of systems that become faulty during
their operating life. Following the systems classification, as
linear and nonlinear models, FTC can be classified in two
different groups, linear FTC (LFTC) dealing with linear models,
and the one of interest to us in this paper, nonlinear FTC (NFTC),
which deals with nonlinear models. We present in this paper a
survey of some of the results obtained in these last years on NFTC.
