The main limitation of linearization theory that prevents its application in practical problems is the need for an exact knowledge of the plant. This requirement is eliminated and it is shown that a multilayer network can synthesise the state feedback coefficients that linearize a nonlinear control affine plant. The stability of the linearizing closed loop can be guaranteed if the autonomous plant is asymptotically stable and the state feedback is bounded.
