Modelling and Control of Dynamical Systems: Numerical Implementation in a Behavioral Framework (Studies in Computational Intelligence)

Buy
A paradigmatic perspective for modeling and control of physical systems has been used since a long time ago: The input/output approach. Although quite natural for our human experience, this perspective imposes a cause/effect framework to the system under study although such system may not have necessarily such cause/effect structure. Actually, from a general point of view, a system interacts with its environment by exchange of mass and energy which should imply the use of bidirectional arrows in a block diagram rather than using unidirectional ones. Another perspective arose when a new variable showed up in systems and control theory: the state (Kalman). Thus, the input/state/output approach was born. Although the concept of state is cornerstone, qualitative characteristics of a system (stability, controllability and observability) have to be defined in terms of a representation of the system, i.e., such characteristics become representation dependent. In contrast, the relatively new Behavioral Approach for systems and control (Jan C. Willems) deals directly with the solution of the differential equations which represent the system. This set of allowed solutions is referred to as the behavior of the system. Thus, the key is the behavior and not the representation. This fact makes this perspective a representation free approach. This book reviews known topics of the Behavioral Approach and offers new theoretic results with the advantage of including control algorithms implemented numerically in the computer. In addition, issues of numerical analysis are also included. The programs and algorithms are MATLAB based.

An Optimized Translation Process and Its Application to ALGOL 68 (Lecture Notes in Computer Science)
An Optimized Translation Process and Its Application to ALGOL 68 (Lecture Notes in Computer Science)
In the late sixties, the definition of ALGOL 68 I 11 , for a long time called ALGOL X, reached some stability. It is at that period (1967) our team started the project of writing a compiler for that language. We had two goals in mind : (I) to make significant research in the field of compiler methodology, (2) to point out the special difficulties...

Learning Cocoa with Objective-C: Developing for the Mac and iOS App Stores
We’ve been developing for the Cocoa framework from when the Mac first supported it. Since then, we’ve seen the ecosystem of Cocoa and Objective-C development evolve from a small programmer’s niche to one of the most important and influential development environments in the world. (In fact, as 2012...
