Discrete-Event Control of Stochastic Networks: Multimodularity and Regularity
by Eitan Altman, Bruno Gaujal, Arie Hordijk
Publisher: Springer 2003
Number of pages: 325
Opening new directions in research in both discrete event dynamic systems as well as in stochastic control, this volume focuses on a wide class of control and of optimization problems over sequences of integer numbers. This is a counterpart of convex optimization in the setting of discrete optimization. The theory developed is applied to the control of stochastic discrete-event dynamic systems.

Several streams of nonlinear control theory are directed towards a constructive solution of the feedback stabilization problem. Analytic, geometric and asymptotic concepts are assembled as design tools for a wide variety of nonlinear phenomena.

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 elementary treatment of linear control theory with an H-infinity optimality criterion. The systems are all linear, timeinvariant, and finite-dimensional and they operate in continuous time. The book has been used in a one-semester graduate course.
