Representation and control of infinite dimensional systems by
Alain Bensoussan(
Book
)
36 editions published between 1991 and 2007 in English and Italian and held by 379 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The quadratic cost optimal control problem for systems described by linear ordinary differential equations occupies a central role in the study of control systems both from a theoretical and design point of view. The study of this problem over an infinite time horizon shows the beautiful interplay between optimality and the qualitative properties of systems such as controllability, observability, stabilizability, and detectability. This theory is far more difficult for infinite dimensional systems such as those with time delays and distributed parameter systems. ... Part I reviews basic optimal control and game theory of finite dimensional systems, which serves as an introduction to the book. Part II deals with time evolution of some generic controlled infinite dimensional systems and contains a fairly complete account of semigroup theory. It incorporates interpolation theory and exhibits the role of semigroup theory in delay differential and partial differential equations. Part III studies the generic qualitative properties of controlled systems. Parts IV and V examine the optimal control of systems when performance is measured via a quadratic cost. Boundary control of parabolic and hyperbolic systems and exact controllability are also covered"P. [4] de la couv

Regularity results for nonlinear elliptic systems and applications by
Alain Bensoussan(
Book
)
15 editions published between 2001 and 2011 in English and held by 323 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The book collects many techniques that are helpul in obtaining regularity results for solutions of nonlinear systems of partial differential equations. They are then applied in various cases to provide useful examples and relevant results, particularly in fields like fluid mechanics, solid mechanics, semiconductor theory, or game theory. In general, these techniques are scattered in the journal literature and developed in the strict context of a given model. In the book, they are presented independently of specific models, so that the main ideas are explained, while remaining applicable to various situations. Such a presentation will facilitate application and implementation by researchers, as well as teaching to students

Dynamic programming and inventory control by
Alain Bensoussan(
Book
)
9 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book presents a unified theory of dynamic programming and Markov decision processes and its application to a major field of operations research and operations management: inventory control. Models are developed in discrete time as well as in continuous time. For continuous time, this book concentrates only on models of interest to inventory control. For discrete time, the focus is mainly on infinite horizon models. The book also covers the difference between impulse control and continuous control. Ergodic control is considered in the context of impulse control, and some simple rules currently used in practice are justified. Chapter 2 introduces some of the classical static problems which are preliminary to the dynamic models of interest in inventory control. This book is not a general text on control theory and dynamic programming, in that the systems dynamics are mostly limited to inventory models. For these models, however, it seeks to be as comprehensive as possible, although finite horizon models in discrete time are not developed, since they are largely described in existing literature. On the other hand, the ergodic control problem is considered in detail, and probabilistic proofs as well as analytical proofs are provided. The techniques developed in this work can be extended to more complex models, covering additional aspects of inventory control

Mean field games and mean field type control theory by
Alain Bensoussan(
Book
)
9 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Mean field games and Mean field type control introduce new problems in Control Theory. The terminology games may be confusing. In fact they are control problems, in the sense that one is interested in a single decision maker, whom we can call the representative agent. However, these problems are not standard, since both the evolution of the state and the objective functional is influenced but terms which are not directly related to the state or the control of the decision maker. They are however, indirectly related to him, in the sense that they model a very large community of agents similar to the representative agent. All the agents behave similarly and impact the representative agent. However, because of the large number an aggregation effect takes place. The interesting consequence is that the impact of the community can be modeled by a mean field term, but when this is done, the problem is reduced to a control problem
