This book comprises the proceedings of the Recent Developments in Control Theory and Applications workshop held in Toronto, Canada, 29th-30th June 1998 in honor of the 60th birthday of E.J. Davison. While the scope of the workshop was quite broad, the main theme was robust control, decentralized control and applications. Some topics include: - robust control for car steering - flow control for networks - fault diagnosis in discrete event systems. With contributions from distinguished authors of international repute, the material presented here focuses upon new findings in the field of control including interesting applications. As well as being informative, it is a useful tool for practitioners of systems and control to ascertain new developments in the field.

Illustrating the power, simplicity, and generality of the concept of flatness, this reference explains how to identify, utilize, and apply flatness in system planning and design. The book includes a large assortment of exercises and models that range from elementary to complex classes of systems. Leading students and professionals through a vast array of designs, simulations, and analytical studies on the traditional uses of flatness, Differentially Flat Systems contains an extensive amount of examples that showcase the value of flatness in system design, demonstrate how flatness can be assessed in the context of perturbed systems and apply static and dynamic feedback controller design techniques.

For undergraduate courses in control theory at the junior or senior level. Introduction to Feedback Control, First Edition updates classical control theory by integrating modern optimal and robust control theory using both classical and modern computational tools. This text is ideal for anyone looking for an up-to-date book on Feedback Control. Although there are many textbooks on this subject, authors Li Qiu and Kemin Zhou provide a contemporary view of control theory that includes the development of modern optimal and robust control theory over the past 30 years. A significant portion of well-known classical control theory is maintained, but with consideration of recent developments and available modern computational tools.
