The control of an underactuated biped robots in single support phase can be done choosing a certain number of output functions, which are dependent on the state variables, i.e. on angular positions and velocities; the choice of these output functions is usually better if they yield a minimum phase system.  In the paper some examples are discussed.  It is suggested that the underlying mathematical problem states and solves the problem in a concise manner. The outline of the seminar includes:



The talk includes a description of projects on walking robots in France and at IRCCyN in Nantes.
