System Theory

  • Network Games, Control, and Optimizationby Samson Lasaulce; Tania Jimenez; Eilon Solan

    Springer International Publishing 2017; US$ 106.14

    This contributed volume offers a collection of papers presented at the 2016 Network Games, Control, and Optimization conference (NETGCOOP), held at the University of Avignon in France, November 23-25, 2016.  These papers highlight the increasing importance of network control and optimization in many networking application domains, such as mobile... more...

  • Fault Diagnosis and Fault-Tolerant Control Based on Adaptive Control Approachby Qikun Shen; Bin Jiang; Peng Shi

    Springer International Publishing 2017; US$ 106.14

    This book provides recent theoretical developments in and practical applications of fault diagnosis and fault tolerant control for complex dynamical systems, including uncertain systems, linear and nonlinear systems. Combining adaptive control technique with other control methodologies, it investigates the problems of fault diagnosis and fault tolerant... more...

  • Solving Fault Diagnosis Problemsby Andreas Varga

    Springer International Publishing 2017; US$ 137.99

    This book addresses fault detection and isolation topics from a computational perspective. Unlike most existing literature, it bridges the gap between the existing well-developed theoretical results and the realm of reliable computational synthesis procedures.  The model-based approach to fault detection and diagnosis has been the subject of... more...

  • Physics of the Human Mindby Ihor Lubashevsky

    Springer International Publishing 2017; US$ 95.53

    This book tackles the challenging question which mathematical formalisms and possibly new physical notions should be developed for quantitatively describing human cognition and behavior, in addition to the ones already developed in the physical and cognitive sciences. Indeed, physics is widely used in modeling social systems, where, in particular,... more...

  • Periodic Feedback Stabilization for Linear Periodic Evolution Equationsby Gengsheng Wang; Yashan Xu

    Springer International Publishing 2017; US$ 45.64

    This book introduces a number of recent advances regarding periodic feedback stabilization for linear and time periodic evolution equations. First, it presents selected connections between linear quadratic optimal control theory and feedback stabilization theory for linear periodic evolution equations. Secondly, it identifies several criteria for... more...

  • Unconventional Conflictby Dean S. Hartley III

    Springer International Publishing 2017; US$ 106.14

    This book describes issues in modeling unconventional conflict and suggests a new way to do the modeling.  It presents an ontology that describes the unconventional conflict domain, which allows for greater ease in modeling unconventional conflict. Supporting holistic modeling, which means that we can see the entire picture... more...

  • A Mathematical Perspective on Flight Dynamics and Controlby Andrea L'Afflitto

    Springer International Publishing 2017; US$ 45.64

    This brief presents several aspects of flight dynamics, which are usually omitted or briefly mentioned in textbooks, in a concise, self-contained, and rigorous manner. The kinematic and dynamic equations of an aircraft are derived starting from the notion of the derivative of a vector and then thoroughly analysed, interpreting their deep meaning from... more...

  • Urban Dynamics and Simulation Modelsby Denise Pumain; Romain Reuillon

    Springer International Publishing 2017; US$ 81.73

    This monograph presents urban simulation methods that help in better understanding urban dynamics. Over historical times, cities have progressively absorbed a larger part of human population and will concentrate three quarters of humankind before the end of the century. This ?urban transition? that has totally transformed the way we inhabit the planet... more...

  • Dynamic Optimizationby Karl Hinderer; Ulrich Rieder; Michael Stieglitz

    Springer International Publishing 2017; US$ 74.30

    This book explores discrete-time dynamic optimization and provides a detailed introduction to both deterministic and stochastic models. Covering problems with finite and infinite horizon, as well as Markov renewal programs, Bayesian control models and partially observable processes, the book focuses on the precise modelling of applications in a variety... more...

  • Optimal Controlby Leonid T. Aschepkov; Dmitriy V. Dolgy; Taekyun Kim; Ravi P. Agarwal

    Springer International Publishing 2017; US$ 53.07

    This book is based on lectures from a one-year course at the Far Eastern Federal University (Vladivostok, Russia) as well as on workshops on optimal control offered to students at various mathematical departments at the university level. The main themes of the theory of linear and nonlinear systems are considered, including the basic problem of establishing... more...
