In this article we review the resent advances in iterative feedback tuning method. First insight is provided into the concept and principle associated with IFT. Then a briefing is given to the initial algorithm of IFT. Subsequently we summarize several aspects of the IFT method, such as, the improved algorithm of it, the extension of it, the combination with others algorithm, the comparison with ... [Show full abstract] others algorithm and the application of it. Finally, this paper gives the remarks on future direction.
