A new paradigm, which combines targeting type of control problem for chaotic systems with the techniques used in system control theory, is proposed. This paradigm is used to rapidly change the evolution of a complex system among desired behaviors. We point out how this paradigm can also be applied to nonlinear systems that do not present the characteristics of a complex system.
