Sensitivity of Automatic Control Systems (Controls)by E. Rozenwasser
Synopses & Reviews
Sensitivity of Control Systems summarizes the results of the authors and their disciples in sensitivity theory, addressing the basic notions of the theory and the problem of selecting technical parameters of systems. The authors formulate problems for actual technical systems and their models, and establish relations between sensitivity theory and classical stability problems. They offer a significant, general theory for investigating the sensitivity of boundary problems and use elements of this theory for sensitivity analysis of solutions to nonlinear programming and variational calculus problems, as well as oscillatory processes. The book also presents general investigation methods for discontinuous systems, including those described by operator models.
Book News Annotation:
Explores the work of Russia's leading researchers in sensitivity theory, and presents techniques for parametric perturbation investigation. Covers the sensitivity of both linear and nonlinear discontinuous systems, and expands the field of sensitivity theory application through formulation of direct and inverse problems. Justifies the use of first-approximations, presents a general theory of boundary problems for the finite-dimensional case, and investigates the sensitivity of solutions to nonlinear programming and variational calculus problems. Of interest to those in theoretical investigation and those working in design, testing, and exploitation of various control systems.
