Analysis and optimization of systems by A Bensoussan ( Book )
48 editions published between 1982 and 1993 in English and Multiple languages and held by 1,112 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This volume contains the proceedings of the conference "state and Frequency Domain Approaches to Infinite-Dimensional Systems". The aim was to bring together engineers and mathematicians working in the field of linear infinite-dimensional systems who are specialists in one or more of the following categories of mathematical approaches: semigroup approches,p.d.e. approaches, frequency domain approaches and syntheses of state-space and frequency domain approaches. Since these approaches use very different sophisticated mathematical techniques, it is unusual for a scientist to be expert in all of them. On the other hand, there different approaches all purport to address the same control problems for the same classes of linear infinite-dimensional systems. It is therefore important to compare and discuss the advantages and disadvantages of these different mathematical techniques. To help ameliorate the communication gab a series of introductory tutorial lectures were given by specialists in the above-mentioned fields. There were complemented by some key survey papers on more recent research, as well as by papers representing original research in these areas
Dynamic programming and inventory control by Alain Bensoussan ( )
8 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 932 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
Representation and control of infinite dimensional systems by Alain Bensoussan ( )
31 editions published between 1991 and 2007 in English and Italian and held by 719 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] of cover

Regularity results for nonlinear elliptic systems and applications by Alain Bensoussan ( Book )
13 editions published between 2001 and 2011 in English and held by 331 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
