Optimal Control: Weakly Coupled Systems and Applications

Optimal Control: Weakly Coupled Systems and Applications Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Since the 1960s, weakly coupled system control has become an extensive area of research. Assembling a team of leading experts in the field, Optimal Control: Weakly Coupled Systems and Applications uncovers new research and important discoveries in this burgeoning field.

Unique in scope, the book represents a comprehensive overview of the current state of knowledge of both the recursive approach and the Hamiltonian approach to weakly coupled linear and bilinear optimal control systems. It devises unique powerful methods whose core results are repeated and slightly modified over and over again, while the methods solve more and more challenging problems of linear and bilinear weakly coupled optimal, continuous- and discrete-time systems.

The book also presents numerous applications to real-world systems from various industries, including aerospace, and discusses the design of subsystem-level optimal filters. Organized into independent chapters for easy access to the material, this text represents the state-of-the-art in the field. Its unique presentation offers much-needed insight and practical guidance.

Book News Annotation:

This book is intended for engineers, mathematicians, physicists, and computer scientists interested in control theory and its applications. It describes a special class of linear and bilinear control systems known as weakly coupled systems. These systems are examined using two new approaches developed by the authors in the last 20 years: the recursive approach (based on fixed point iterations) and the Hamiltonian approach (based on block diagonalization of the Hamiltonian matrix of optimal control theory of linear systems). Theoretical results are demonstrated with applications from the aerospace, chemical, electrical, and automotive industries. The design of subsystem-level optimal filters and controllers is also addressed. Self-contained chapters are grouped in sections on the recursive approach, the Hamiltonian approach, and bilinear weakly coupled control systems. Gajic is affiliated with Rutgers University.

Synopsis:

Unique in scope, Optimal Control: Weakly Coupled Systems and Applications provides complete coverage of modern linear, bilinear, and nonlinear optimal control algorithms for both continuous-time and discrete-time weakly coupled systems, using deterministic as well as stochastic formulations. This book presents numerous applications to real world systems from various industries, including aerospace, and discusses the design of subsystem-level optimal filters. Organized into independent chapters for easy access to the material, this text also contains several case studies, examples, exercises, computer assignments, and formulations of research problems to help instructors and students.
