Modern Control Theory-A historical perspective -

  title={Modern Control Theory-A historical perspective -},
  author={Neculai Andrei},
The purpose of this paper is to present a brief sketch of the evolution of modern control theory. Systems theory witnessed different stages and approaches, which will be very shortly presented. The main idea is that, at present, Control Theory is an interdisciplinary area of research where many mathematical concepts and methods work together to produce an impressive body of important applied mathematics. A general conclusion is that the main advances in Control of Systems would come both from… 

Vortex dynamics models in flow control problems

In this article we review the state of the art in the field of control of vortex dynamics. We focus on problems governed by two-dimensional incompressible Euler equations in domains both with and

Design of Controllers for a Multiple Input Multiple Output System

A method of controller design for multiple input multiple output (MIMO) system is needed that will not give the high order controllers of modern control theory but will be more systematic than the “ad hoc” method.

The rational expectations revolution was not based only on the introduction of Muth’s idea of rational expectations to macroeconomics; this introduction alone cannot explain the more drastic changes

Fuzzy-Based Actuators Controlling for Minimizing Power Consumption in Cyber-physical System

The results of a simulation reveal that fuzzy control method for actuators in a cyber-physical system can be used to minimize the power consumption of the system while accomplishing the desired set point.

Optimization and control of large-scale networked systems

This dissertation presents a meta-modelling system that automates the very labor-intensive and therefore time-heavy and therefore expensive and expensive process of systematically cataloging and cataloging individual components of a system.

A CAD Tool for Linear Optics Design: A Controls Engineer's Geometric Approach to Hill's Equation

The formulae relevant for the Linear Optics design of Synchrotrons are derived systematically from first principles, a straightforward exercise in Hamiltonian Dynamics. Equipped with these, the

How to touch a running system: reconfiguration of stateful components

This work utilizes the formal description of the component model to provide an algorithm for reconfiguration that retains as much flexibility as possible, while avoiding most problems that arise due to concurrency.

Dynamic Discrete Inventory Control Model with Deterministic and Stochastic Demand in Pharmaceutical Distribution

This paper presents an inventory control problem in a private pharmaceutical distribution company from the Republic of Serbia. The company realizes that distribution within nine neighbouring

Fuzzy and Rough Set Theory in Treatment of Elderly Gastric Cancer Patients

One of the objectives of this study is to apply some classical methods of fuzzy set theory to medicine in order to estimate the survival length of gastric cancer patients by testing the action of fuzzy controllers of the Mamdani and Sugeno type.

The Mamdani Controller in Prediction of the Survival Length in Elderly Gastric Patients

The objective of the current paper is to formulate the utilization of fuzzy control action for the purpose of making the survival prognoses of gastric cancer patients.



Paradigms and puzzles in the theory of dynamical systems

A self-contained exposition is given of an approach to mathematical models, in particular, to the theory of dynamical systems. The basic ingredients form a triptych, with the behavior of a system in

This paper starts with an extensive physical example which serves to illustrate that the familiar input-output feedback loop structure is not as universal as the authors have been taught to believe, and formulation of control problems in terms of interconnections.

Contributions to the Theory of Optimal Control

This is one of the two ground-breaking papers by Kalman that appeared in 1960—with the other one being the filtering and prediction paper, which deals with linear-quadratic feedback control, and set the stage for what came to be known as LQR (Linear-Quadratic-Regulator) control.

New Results in Linear Filtering and Prediction Theory

The Duality Principle relating stochastic estimation and deterministic control problems plays an important role in the proof of theoretical results and properties of the variance equation are of great interest in the theory of adaptive systems.

Self-bounded controlled invariant subspaces: A straightforward approach to constrained controllability

AbstractA lattice-type structure is shown to exist in a particular subset of the set of all (A, ℱ)-controlled invariants contained in $$\mathcal{N}$$ and containing $$\mathcal{N}$$ , whereA denotes

Geometric insight into discrete-time cheap and singular linear quadratic Riccati (LQR) problems

The Hamiltonian system related to discrete-time cheap linear quadratic Riccati (LQR) problems is analyzed in a purely geometric context, with the twofold purpose of getting a useful insight into its
