The hysteresis phenomenon occurs in diverse disciplines ranging from physics to biology, from material science to mechanics, and from electronics to economics. When the hysteresis nonlinearity precedes a controlled system, the nonlinearity usually causes the overall closed-loop system to exhibit inaccuracies or oscillations, even leading to instability. Control techniques to mitigate the unwanted effects of hysteresis have been studied for decades and have recently once again attracted significant attention. In this thesis, several adaptive control strategies are developed for systems with different hysteresis model representations to guarantee the basic stability requirement of the closed-loop systems and to track a desired trajectory with a certain precision. These proposed strategies to mitigate the effects of hysteresis are as follows: i). With the classical Duhem model, an observer-based adaptive control scheme for a piezoelectric actuator system is proposed. Due to the unavailability of the hysteresis output, an observer-based adaptive controller incorporating a pre-inversion neural network compensator is developed for the purpose of mitigating the hysteretic effects; ii). With the Prandtl-Ishlinskii model, an adaptive tracking control approach is developed for a class of nonlinear systems in p-normal form by using the technique of adding a power integrator to address the challenge of how to fuse this hysteresis model with the control techniques to mitigate hysteresis, without necessarily constructing a hysteresis inverse; iii). With a newly proposed hysteresis model using play-like operators, two control strategies are proposed for a class of nonlinear systems: one with sliding mode control and the other with backstepping techniques
