Controlled Lagrangian and matching techniques are developed for the stabilization of equilibria of discrete mechanical systems with symmetry as well as broken symmetry. Interesting new phenomena arise in the controlled Lagrangian approach in the discrete context that are not present in the continuous theory. Specifically, a nonconservative force that is necessary for matching in the discrete setting is introduced. The paper also discusses digital and model predictive controllers.
