9783642059070: Control Theory from the Geometric Viewpoint (Encyclopaedia of Mathematical Sciences)

This book presents some facts and methods of the Mathematical Control Theory treated from the geometric point of view. The book is mainly based on graduate courses given by the first coauthor in the years 2000-2001 at the International School for Advanced Studies, Trieste, Italy. Mathematical prerequisites are reduced to standard courses of Analysis and Linear Algebra plus some basic Real and Functional Analysis. No preliminary knowledge of Control Theory or Differential Geometry is required. What this book is about? The classical deterministic physical world is described by smooth dynamical systems: the future in such a system is com­ pletely determined by the initial conditions. Moreover, the near future changes smoothly with the initial data. If we leave room for "free will" in this fatalistic world, then we come to control systems. We do so by allowing certain param­ eters of the dynamical system to change freely at every instant of time. That is what we routinely do in real life with our body, car, cooker, as well as with aircraft, technological processes etc. We try to control all these dynamical systems! Smooth dynamical systems are governed by differential equations. In this book we deal only with finite dimensional systems: they are governed by ordi­ nary differential equations on finite dimensional smooth manifolds. A control system for us is thus a family of ordinary differential equations. The family is parametrized by control parameters.

Review:

Aus den Rezensionen:

"Der Band ist aus Graduiertenkursen an der International School for Advanced Studies in Triest entstanden ... Mathematisch werden gute Kenntnisse der Analysis, der linearen Algebra und der Funktionalanalysis vorausgesetzt. ... Bekannte und neue Beispiele ... illustrieren hier die Fülle an Aussagen in sehr anschaulicher Weise. Insgesamt ist so ein Band entstanden, der Mathematikern und mathematisch interessierten Anwendern wertvolle Anregungen bei der Auseinandersetzung mit gesteuerten bzw. geregelten nichtlinearen Systemen und deren Optimierung bietet."

(l. Troch, in: IMN - Internationale Mathematische Nachrichten, 2006, Issue 202, S. 44 f.)
