System Theory

  • Understanding Leadership in Complex Systemsby Terje Andreas Tonsberg; Jeffrey Shawn Henderson

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 129.00

    This work proposes that Carl Menger?s Subjective Theory of Value (STV), and its subsequent elaboration by Ludwig von Mises as Praxeology, provides a useful alternative to more common methods in the study of action and social phenomena, and more specifically, to leadership in complex social systems. Rather than being based on rationality assumptions... more...

  • Universal Fuzzy Controllers for Non-affine Nonlinear Systemsby Qing Gao

    Springer Singapore 2016; US$ 129.00

    This thesis provides a systematic and integral answer to an open problem concerning the universality of dynamic fuzzy controllers. It presents a number of novel ideas and approaches to various issues including universal function approximation, universal fuzzy models, universal fuzzy stabilization controllers, and universal... more...

  • Energy, Complexity and Wealth Maximizationby Robert Ayres

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 79.99

    This book describes the evolution and mechanisms of natural wealth creation. The author explains how natural wealth consists of complex physical structures of condensed (?frozen?) energy and what the key requirements for wealth creation are, namely a change agent, a selection mechanism and a life-extending mechanism. He uses elements from multiple... more...

  • Nonlinear Systemsby Nathan van de Wouw; Erjen Lefeber; Ines Lopez Arteaga

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 109.00

    This treatment of modern topics relatedto the control of nonlinear systems is a collection of contributionscelebrating the work of Professor Henk Nijmeijer and honoring his 60 th birthday. It addresses several topics that have been the core of ProfessorNijmeijer?s work, namely: the control of nonlinear systems, geometric controltheory, synchronization,... more...

  • Survival under Uncertaintyby Dimitri Volchenkov

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 129.00

    This book introduces and studies a number of stochastic models of subsistence, communication, social evolution and political transition that will allow the reader to grasp the role of uncertainty as a fundamental property of our irreversible world. At the same time, it aims to bring about a more interdisciplinary and quantitative approach across... more...

  • Real Time Control Engineeringby Tian Seng Ng

    Springer Singapore 2016; US$ 119.00

    This book covers the two broad areas of the electronics and electrical aspects of control applications, highlighting the many different types of control systems of relevance to real-life control system design. The control techniques presented are state-of-the-art. In the electronics section, readers will find essential information on microprocessor,... more...

  • Automating with SIMATICby Hans Berger

    Wiley 2016; US$ 39.50 US$ 34.23

    The book provides a complete overview of the SIMATIC automation system and the TIA Portal with the engineering tool STEP 7.

    This edited monograph includes state-of-the-art contributions on continuous time dynamical networks with delays. The book is divided into four parts. The first part presents tools and methods for the analysis of time-delay systems with a particular attention on control problems of large scale or infinite-dimensional systems with delays. The second... more...

  • Optimization of Polynomials in Non-Commuting Variablesby Sabine Burgdorf; Igor Klep; Janez Povh

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 54.99

    This bookpresents recent results on positivity and optimization of polynomials innon-commuting variables. Researchers in non-commutative algebraic geometry,control theory, system engineering, optimization, quantum physics andinformation science will find the unified notation and mixture of algebraicgeometry and mathematical programming useful. Theoretical... more...

  • Power System Dynamics and Controlby Harry G. Kwatny; Karen Miu-Miller

    Springer New York 2016; US$ 109.00

    This book confronts the real possibility of a deliberate disruptive attack on power systems, with an array of modeling, monitoring and control innovations. The book is supplemented by a Mathematica package enabling readers to work out examples and problems. more...
