Notes on Iterative Learning Control
1. Want to know what iterative learning control (my favorable topic) is? I would recommend the following tutorial paper.
A Survey of Iterative Learning Control
Douglas A. Bristow, Marina Tharayil, Andrew G. Alleyne
My current focus is the stochastic iterative learning control, which means ILC for stochastic systems or with random signals. I have published three surveys on this topic. You can refer the following papers for more details.
Survey on stochastic iterative learning control

Journal of Process Control, vol. 24, pp. 64-77, 2014
Iterative learning control with incomplete information: A survey
