System Theory

  • Lectures in Feedback Design for Multivariable Systemsby Alberto Isidori

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 99.00

    This book focuses on methods that relate, in one form or another, to the ?small-gain theorem?. It is aimed at readers who are interested in learning methods for the design of feedback laws for linear and nonlinear multivariable systems in the presence of model uncertainties. With worked examples throughout, it includes both introductory material and... more...

  • Complex Conjugate Matrix Equations for Systems and Controlby Ai-Guo Wu; Ying Zhang

    Springer Singapore 2016; US$ 129.00

    The book is the first book on complex matrix equations including the conjugate of unknown matrices. The study of these conjugate matrix equations is motivated by the investigations on stabilization and model reference tracking control for discrete-time antilinear systems, which are a particular kind of complex system with structure constraints. It... more...

  • How Systems Form and How Systems Breakby Chiang H. Ren

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 119.00

    Our world is composed of systems within systems?the machines we build, the information we share, the organizations we form, and elements of nature that surround us. Therefore, nearly every field of study and practice embodies behaviors stemming from system dynamics. Yet the study of systems has remained somewhat fragmented based on philosophies, methodologies,... more...

  • The Statistical Physics of Fixation and Equilibration in Individual-Based Modelsby Peter Ashcroft

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 129.00

    This thesis explores several interdisciplinary topics at the border of theoretical physics and biology, presenting results that demonstrate the power of methods from statistical physics when applied to neighbouring disciplines. From birth-death processes in switching environments to discussions on the meaning of quasi-potential landscapes in high-dimensional... more...

  • Optimal Control of a Double Integratorby Arturo Locatelli

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 89.99

    This book provides an introductory yet rigorous treatment of Pontryagin?s Maximum Principle and its application to optimal control problems when simple and complex constraints act on state and control variables, the two classes of variable in such problems. The achievements resulting from first-order variational methods are illustrated with reference... more...

  • Stability and Boundary Stabilization of 1-D Hyperbolic Systemsby Georges Bastin; Jean-Michel Coron

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 109.00

    This monograph explores the modeling of conservation and balance laws of one-dimensional hyperbolic systems using partial differential equations.  It presents typical examples of hyperbolic systems for a wide range of physical engineering applications, allowing readers to understand the concepts in whichever setting is most familiar to them.  With... more...

  • 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 is about the mechanisms of wealth creation, or what we like to think of as evolutionary "progress." The massive circular flow of goods and services between producers and consumers is not a perpetual motion machine; it has been dependent for the past 150 years on energy inputs from a finite storage of fossil fuels. In this book, you will learn... 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...
