Analysis and Design of Nonlinear Control Systems: In Honor by Alessandro Astolfi, Lorenzo Marconi

By Alessandro Astolfi, Lorenzo Marconi

This booklet is a tribute to Prof. Alberto Isidori at the get together of his sixty fifth birthday. Prof. Isidori’s proli?c, pioneering and high-impact learn job has spanned over 35 years. all through his profession, Prof. Isidori has constructed ground-breaking effects, has initiated researchdirections and has contributed towardsthe foundationofnonlinear controltheory.In addition,his commitment to provide an explanation for tricky concerns and di?cult ideas in an easy and rigorous means and to encourage younger researchers has been instrumental to the highbrow development of the nonlinear regulate neighborhood all over the world. the amount collects 27 contributions written through a complete of fifty two researchers. The vital writer of every contribution has been chosen one of the - searchers who've labored with Prof. Isidori, have in?uenced his learn job, or have had the privilege and honour of being his PhD scholars. The contributions tackle a signi?cant variety of regulate issues, together with th- retical matters, complicated purposes, rising regulate instructions and instructional works. the range of the parts lined, the variety of members and their overseas status offer proof of the influence of Prof. Isidori within the keep an eye on and structures idea groups. The booklet has been divided into six elements: approach research, Optimization tools, suggestions layout, legislation, Geometric equipment and Asymptotic research, re?ecting vital keep watch over parts which were strongly in- enced and, at times, pioneered via Prof. Isidori.

Elastoplasticity Theory

Knowing the elastoplastic deformation of metals and geomaterials, together with the constitutive description of the fabrics and research of constitution present process plastic deformation, is a vital a part of the historical past required by means of mechanical, civil, and geotechnical engineers in addition to fabrics scientists.

Chaotic Logic - Language, Mind and Reality from the Perspective of Complex Systems Science

This booklet summarizes a community of interrelated principles which i've got built, on and off, during the last 8 or ten years. The underlying topic is the mental interaction of order and chaos. Or, to place it differently, the interaction of deduction and induction. i'm going to try and clarify the connection among logical, orderly, wide awake, rule-following cause and fluid, self­ organizing, habit-governed, subconscious, chaos-infused instinct.

Studies on the Optimal Search Plan

Seek thought is anxious with the site of a 'target' given vague info pertaining to its place. the topic has quite a few purposes akin to finding lacking humans in wasteland or at sea, looking for mineral deposits, clinical prognosis, and looking for malfunctions in commercial techniques.

System Engineering Approach to Planning Anticancer Therapies

This ebook specializes in the research of melanoma dynamics and the mathematically dependent synthesis of anticancer treatment. It summarizes the present state of the art during this box and clarifies universal misconceptions approximately mathematical modeling in melanoma. also, it encourages nearer cooperation among engineers, physicians and mathematicians by way of exhibiting the transparent merits of this with no pointing out unrealistic targets.

Example text

For example, in the electrical circuit, a multi-terminal connector was viewed as a module, not as a connection. Also, in mechanical systems, joints, hooks and hinges should be viewed as modules, not as connections. As a caveat, we should emphasize that not all interconnections or interactions of subsystems fit the framework described above. In particular, distributed interconnections were not considered, for example mechanical systems that are interconnected by sharing a surface, or heat conduction along a surface.
