System Theory

Most popular at the top

  • Observing Complexityby William Rasch; Cary Wolfe

    University of Minnesota Press 2000; US$ 72.00

    Brings the major concepts and foremost thinkers of systems theory into interaction with the major figures of postmodern theory. The format is multiplex and open?a rich montage, including interviews, exemplary essays, and staged dialogues. more...

  • Robust Control Designby Feng Lin

    Wiley 2007; US$ 160.00

    Comprehensive and accessible guide to the three main approaches to robust control design and its applications Optimal control is a mathematical field that is concerned with control policies that can be deduced using optimization algorithms. The optimal control approach to robust control design differs from conventional direct approaches to robust... more...

  • Robot Navigation from Natureby Michael John Milford

    Springer 2008; US$ 99.00

    This book describes the development of a robot mapping and navigation system inspired by models of the neural mechanisms underlying spatial navigation in the rodent hippocampus. Computational models of animal navigation systems have traditionally had limited performance when implemented on robots. The aim of the work was to determine the extent to... more...

  • Mathematical Methods for Robust and Nonlinear Controlby Matthew C. Turner; Declan G. Bates

    Springer 2007; US$ 129.00

    The Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council sponsored Summer School which was held in 2006 attempted to "fill in the gap" in students' appreciation of the theory relevant to several important areas of control. This volume contains a collection of lecture notes presented at that workshop by experts in advanced control engineering. more...

  • Unifying Themes in Complex Systemsby Ali A. Minai; Yaneer Bar-Yam

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2007; US$ 169.00

  • Analysis and Design of Nonlinear Control Systemsby Alessandro Astolfi; Lorenzo Marconi

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2007; US$ 239.00

    This book has been prepared as a tribute to Prof. Alberto Isidori on the occasion of his 65th birthday. The book contains 27 chapters written by a number of researchers who have been involved, in different ways, in the prolific and high-impact career of Prof. Isidori. The chapters cover a significant number of control and systems theory topics and... more...

  • Plant Systems Biologyby Sacha Baginsky; Alisdair R. Fernie

    Springer 2007; US$ 299.00

    Systems biology represents the integration and application of various technologies that share a common goal of measuring globally the properties of a specific biological sample. These combined data describe and monitor the complex networks that exist within each cell, tissue and organism, and can be used to generate predictive models of the behavior... more...

  • Scale-Free Networksby Guido Caldarelli

    Oxford University Press, UK 2007; US$ 124.99

    Many different systems both in nature and in technology can be described by means of networks of interconnected components. Despite their different aspects, all of them share similar mathematical properties. In this book we explain how to recognize these features and why these different systems develop this common structure. - ;A variety of different... more...

  • Homogeneous Polynomial Forms for Robustness Analysis of Uncertain Systemsby Graziano Chesi; Andrea Garulli; Alberto Tesi; Antonio Vicino

    Springer 2009; US$ 129.00

    This book presents a number of techniques for robustness analysis of uncertain systems. The theoretical basis for their development is derived from the application of convex optimization tools to problems involving positivity of homogeneous polynomial forms. Usually, stability and performance analysis of dynamic systems affected by structured uncertainties,... more...
