Finite dimensional linear systems by
Roger W Brockett(
Book
)
23 editions published between 1969 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 462 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Originally published in 1970, Finite Dimensional Linear Systems is a classic textbook that provides a solid foundation for learning about dynamical systems and encourages students to develop a reliable intuition for problem solving. The theory of linear systems has been the bedrock of control theory for 50 years and has served as the springboard for many significant developments, all the while remaining impervious to change. Since linearity lies at the heart of much of the mathematical analysis used in applications, a firm grounding in its central ideas is essential. This book touches upon many of the standard topics in applied mathematics; develops the theory of linear systems in a systematic way, making as much use as possible of vector ideas; and contains a number of nontrivial examples and many exercises

Geometric Methods in System Theory In automatic control there are a large number of applications of a fairly simple type for which the motion of the state variables is not free to evolve in a vector space but rather must satisfy some constraints. Examples are numerous; in a switched, lossless electrical network energy is conserved and the state evolves on an ellipsoid surface defined by x'Qx equals a constant; in the control of finite state, continuous time, Markov processes the state evolves on the set x'x = 1, xi ~ O. The control of rigid body motions and trajectory control leads to problems of this type. There has been under way now for some time an effort to build up enough control theory to enable one to treat these problems in a more or less routine way. It is important to emphasise that the ordinary vector spacelinear theory often gives the wrong insight and thus should not be relied upon

Optimization and dynamical systems by
Uwe Helmke(
Book
)
5 editions published between 1994 and 1996 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This study addresses both classical and previously unsolved optimization tasks in linear algebra, linear systems theory, control theory and signal processing. Exploiting developments in Computation such as Parallel Computing and Neural Networks, it gives a dynamical systems approach for tackling a wide class of constrained optimization tasks. Optimization and Dynamical Systems will be of interest to engineers and mathematicians. Engineers will learn the mathematics and the technical approach necessary to solve a wide class of constrained optimization tasks. Mathematicians will see how techniques from global analysis and differential geometry can be developed to achieve useful construction procedures for optimization on manifolds

Mathematical control theory by
J Baillieul(
Book
)
1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This selfcontained volume surveys three decades of mathematical control theory and at the same time describes how the work of Roger Brockett shaped and influenced its development. Nine survey articles written by leading experts in the field, who have also been closely associated with Roger Brockett at various stages in his career, treat the subject cohesively and in depth. This volume will provide an important reference for graduate students and researchers, as well as for mathematicians, engineers and scientists whose work involves concepts and the language of control and systems theory

Geometric Problems in Adaptive Control(
Book
)
2 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Adaptive control has become practical in recent years because of the increased use of VLSI technology in implementing feedback control. The work described here has lead to the first proofs of convergence for some adaptive algorithms for stabilizing linear time invariant, but unknown, systems. It has also clarified robustness issues associated with this class of adaptive control algorithms. With the use of geometrical methods it has been possible to establish the impossibility of achieving several types of adaptive behavior. New directions for expanding the field of adaptive control have been explored. (Author)

The Design and Control of Smart Structures(
Book
)
2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
This is the final report of the Boston University, Harvard University and University of Maryland MURI on Design and Control of Smart Structures. The report contains a summary of results obtained from the inception of the program in May 1997 until its conclusion in August, 2003. Over this period the researchers involved produced new and useful results in the areas of micromechanical devices (fabricated and used at ARL), micro fluidics, work on the control of boundary layer flows, work on modeling micromagnetics, and a range of patented devices including a 1024 segment controllable MEMS mirror and a novel 1000 Hz optical switch based on the control of a fluid interface. More than 60 students at undergraduate, graduate and postdoctoral levels were supported under this project and over 160 papers have appeared acknowledging support from the grant
