Input delays create challenges in stabilization problems in many applications for unstable plants. I will present new designs for global stabilization of broad classes of nonlinear systems with long input delays. I will also introduce problems where the length of the input delay is highly uncertain, or even completely unknown, and present adaptive control designs for stabilization in the presence of this and other parametric uncertainties. In addition to input delays, I will discuss other infinite-dimensional input dynamics, such as those that combine convective and diffusive phenomena. Finally, I will show designs for PDEs with long input delays, such as unstable reaction-diffusion equations and anti-stable wave equations
