Optimal adaptive control methods for structurally varying systems by Alexander Sarris( )
3 editions published in 1973 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Abstract: The problem of simultaneously identifying and controlling a time-varying, perfectly-observed linear system is posed. The parameters are assumed to obey a Markov structure and are estimated with a Kalman filter. The problem can be solved conceptually by dynamic programming, but even with a quadratic loss function the analytical computations cannot be carried out for more than one step because of the dual nature of the optimal control law. All approximations to the solution that have been proposed in the literature, and two approximations that are presented here for the first time are analyzed. They are classified into dual and non-dual methods. Analytical comparison is untractable; hence Monte Carlo simulations are used. A set of experiments is presented in which five non-dual methods are compared. The numerical results indicate a possible ordering among these approximations

4 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Naval C3 (Command, Control and Communications) Distributed Tactical Decision Making ( Book )
9 editions published between 1986 and 1988 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The objective of the research is to address analytical and computational issues that arise in the modeling, analysis and design of distributed tactical decisionmaking. The research plan has been organized into two highly interrelated research areas: Distributed Tactical Decision Processes; and Distributed Organization Design. The focus of the first area is the development of methodologies, models, theories and algorithms directed toward the deriviation of superior tactical decision, coordination, and communication strategies of distributed agents in fixed organizational structures. The framework for this research is normative. The focus of the second area is the development of a quantitative methodology for the evaluation and comparison of alternative organizational structures or architectures. The organizations considered consist of human decisionmakers with bounded rationality who are supported by C3 systems. The organizations function in a hostile environment where the tempo of operations is fast; consequently, the organizations must be able to respond to events in a timely manner. The framework for this research is descriptive. Keywords: Petri nets; Real time; Problem solving
