Download E-books Directions in Mathematical Systems Theory and Optimization PDF

By Karl Johan Åström, Bo Bernhardsson (auth.), Anders Rantzer, Christopher I. Byrnes (eds.)

For greater than 3 a long time, Anders Lindquist has brought primary cont- butions to the ?elds of platforms, indications and regulate. all through this era, 4 topics can maybe represent his pursuits: Modeling, estimation and ?ltering, suggestions and strong keep an eye on. His contributions to modeling comprise seminal paintings at the function of splitting subspaces in stochastic awareness conception, at the partial recognition challenge for either deterministic and stochastic platforms, at the resolution of the rational covariance extension challenge and on method identi?cation. His contributions to ?ltering and estimation contain the improvement of quick ?ltering algorithms, resulting in a nonlinear dynamical method which computes spectral components in its regular nation, and which offer another, linear within the size of the kingdom house, to computing the Kalman achieve from a matrix Riccati equation. His extra learn at the section portrait of this dynamical method gave a greater knowing of whilst the Kalman ?lter will converge, answering an open query raised by means of Kalman. whereas nonetheless a pupil he demonstrated the separation precept for stochastic functionality differential equations, together with a few primary paintings on optimum keep an eye on for stochastic platforms with time lags. He endured his curiosity in suggestions keep an eye on by means of deriving optimum and strong keep an eye on suggestions legislation for suppressing the consequences of harmonic disturbances. in addition, his contemporary paintings on an entire parameterization of all rational recommendations to the Nevanlinna-Pick challenge is delivering a brand new method of strong keep watch over design.
