      Modern Chaos Control has a twenty year history within Cybernetical Physics. The 1992 paper by K. Pyregas linked below is a classic text. While it does not explicitly mention kites, its obvious to any technical kite system designer that the ideas and methods are inherently applicable to highly effective and efficient AWES oscillation control. This work lays a formal basis to explain and predict many phenomena, including why adding a simple tail to a kite converts chaotic dancing and looping into stable flight. Many scattered ideas kicked around by us on the Forum are here elegantly presented and validated. This will prove to be one of our classic references in AWES design-
