#### Geometrical Dynamics of Complex Systems

Springer 2006; US$ 339.00This volume presents a comprehensive introduction into rigorous geometrical dynamics of complex systems of various natures. "Complex systems", in this book, are meant high-dimensional nonlinear systems, which can be (but not necessarily are) adaptive. This monograph proposes a unified geometrical approach to dynamics of complex systems of... more...

#### Modelling and Identification with Rational Orthogonal Basis Functions

Springer 2005; US$ 209.00Models of dynamical systems are of great importance in almost all fields of science and engineering and specifically in control, signal processing and information science. A model is always only an approximation of a real phenomenon so that having an approximation theory which allows for the analysis of model quality is a substantial concern. The use... more...

#### Subspace Methods for System Identification

Springer 2006; US$ 239.00An in-depth introduction to subspace methods for system identification in discrete-time linear systems thoroughly augmented with advanced and novel results, this text is structured into three parts. Part I deals with the mathematical preliminaries: numerical linear algebra; system theory; stochastic processes; and Kalman filtering. Part II explains... more...

#### Liapunov Functions and Stability in Control Theory

Springer-Verlag Berlin and Heidelberg GmbH & Co. KG 2006; US$ 209.00This book presents a modern and self-contained treatment of the Liapunov method for stability analysis, in the framework of mathematical nonlinear control theory. A Particular focus is on the problem of the existence of Liapunov functions (converse Liapunov theorems) and their regularity, whose interest is especially motivated by applications to automatic... more...

#### Collective Dynamics of Nonlinear and Disordered Systems

Springer-Verlag Berlin and Heidelberg GmbH & Co. KG 2005; US$ 189.00Phase transitions in disordered systems and related dynamical phenomena are a topic of intrinsically high interest in theoretical and experimental physics. This book presents a unified view, adopting concepts from each of the disjoint fields of disordered systems and nonlinear dynamics. Special attention is paid to the glass transition, from both experimental... more...

#### Recent Advances in Optimization

Springer-Verlag Berlin and Heidelberg GmbH & Co. KG 2006; US$ 149.00Gives an overview of research done in optimization and related areas, such as optimal control, calculus of variations, and game theory. This book not only addresses abstract issues of optimization theory, but is also concerned with the modeling and computer resolution of specific optimization problems, arising in industry and applied sciences. more...

#### Representation and Control of Infinite-dimensional Systems

Springer 2007; US$ 139.00The quadratic cost optimal control problem for systems described by linear ordinary differential equations occupies a central role in the study of control systems, both from theoretical and design aspects. Divided into five parts, this book presents an account of quadratic cost optimal control for a large class of infinite dimensional systems. more...
