Control and Nonlinearity

Number of pages: 444
This book presents methods to study the controllability and the stabilization of nonlinear control systems in finite and infinite dimensions. The emphasis is put on specific phenomena due to nonlinearities. In particular, many examples are given where nonlinearities turn out to be essential to get controllability or stabilization. Various methods are presented to study the controllability or to construct stabilizing feedback laws. The power of these methods is illustrated by numerous examples coming from such areas as celestial mechanics, fluid mechanics, and quantum mechanics.

Opening new directions in research in stochastic control, this book focuses on a wide class of control and of optimization problems over sequences of integer numbers. The theory is applied to the control of stochastic discrete-event dynamic systems.

There are actually two separate series of lectures, on controlled stochastic jump processes and nonlinear filtering respectively. They are united however, by the common philosophy of treating Markov processes by methods of stochastic calculus.

Intelligent control describes the discipline where control methods emulate important characteristics of human intelligence. These characteristics include adaptation and learning, planning under large uncertainty and coping with large amounts of data.

An introduction to the basic principles and tools for the design and analysis of feedback systems. It is intended for scientists and engineers who are interested in utilizing feedback in physical, biological, information and social systems.
