You mentioned "aggressive" dynamics a couple of times. Please define. How/when is it useful?

In the context of dynamical systems, "aggressive" can refer to fast changing, but usually unstable dynamics. The X-29 aircraft mentioned in week 1 is a good example of this. Having intrinsic aggressive dynamics is desired because we can exploit its fast varying nature to generate more agile maneuvers.
