Описание: Optimal Control and Dynamic Games has been edited to honor the outstanding contributions of Professor Suresh Sethi in the fields of Applied Optimal Control. Professor Sethi is internationally one of the foremost experts in this field. He is, among others, co-author of the popular textbook "Sethi and Thompson: Optimal Control Theory: Applications to Management Science and Economics". The book consists of a collection of essays by some of the best known scientists in the field, covering diverse aspects of applications of optimal control and dynamic games to problems in Finance, Management Science, Economics, and Operations Research. In doing so, it provides both a state-of-the-art overview over recent developments in the field, and a reference work covering the wide variety of contemporary questions that can be addressed with optimal control tools, and demonstrates the fruitfulness of the methodology.

Описание: Updated to conform to Mathematica® 7.0, this second edition shows how to easily create simulations from templates and solve problems using Mathematica. Along with new sections on order statistics, transformations of multivariate normal random variables, and Brownian motion, this edition offers an expanded section on Markov chains, more example data of the normal distribution, and more attention on conditional expectation. It also includes additional problems from Actuarial Exam P as well as new examples, exercises, and data sets. The accompanying CD-ROM contains updated Mathematica notebooks and a revised solutions manual is available for qualifying instructors.
Описание: It presents recent and pressing issues in stochastic processes, control theory, differential games, optimization, and their applications in finance, manufacturing, queueing networks, and climate control. The book is dedicated to Professor Suresh Sethi on the occasion of his 60th birthday, in view of his distinguished career.
Описание: The purpose of this book is to acquaint the reader with the developments in bilinear systems theory and its applications. Bilinear systems can be used to represent a wide range of physical, chemical, biological, and social systems, as well as manufacturing processes, which cannot be effectively modeled under the assumption of linearity. This book provides a unified approach for the identification and control of nonlinear complex objects that can be transformed into bilinear systems, with a focus on the control of open physical processes functioning in a non-equilibrium mode. A wide class of non-linear control systems can be approximated using novel algorithms motivated by bilinear models. The goal of this book is to describe new methods, heuristics, and optimality criteria with less demanding computational complexity than exact criteria that result in robust adaptive algorithms. Emphasis is placed on three primary disciplines influencing bilinear systems theory: modern differential geometry, control of dynamical systems, and optimization theory.
Описание: The coordinated use of autonomous vehicles has an abundance of potential applications from the domestic to the hazardously toxic. Frequently the communications necessary for the productive interplay of such vehicles may be subject to limitations in range, bandwidth, noise and other causes of unreliability.The monograph is divided into six parts covering introductory, theoretical and experimental material and featuring:вЂў an overview of the use of consensus algorithms in cooperative control;вЂў consensus algorithms in single- and double-integrator dynamical systems;вЂў consensus algorithms for rigid-body attitude dynamics;вЂў rendezvous and axial alignment, formation control, deep-space formation flying, fire monitoring and surveillance.Notation drawn from graph and matrix theory and background material on linear and nonlinear system theory are enumerated in six appendices. The authors maintain a website at which can be found a sample simulation and experimental video material associated with experiments in several chapters of this book.Information consensus guarantees that vehicles sharing information over a network topology have a consistent view of information critical to the coordination task. Assuming only neighbor-neighbor interaction between vehicles, Distributed Consensus in Multi-vehicle Cooperative Control develops distributed consensus strategies designed to ensure that the information states of all vehicles in a network converge to a common value. This approach strengthens the team, minimizing power consumption and the deleterious effects of range and other restrictions.Academic control systems researchers and their counterparts in government laboratories and robotics- and aerospace-related industries will find the ideas presented in Distributed Consensus in Multi-vehicle Cooperative Control of great interest. This text will also serve as a valuable support and reference for graduate courses in robotics, and linear and nonlinear control systems.

Описание: Chaos control refers to purposefully manipulating chaotic dynamical behaviors of some complex nonlinear systems. There exists no similar control theory-oriented book available in the market that is devoted to the subject of chaos control, written by control engineers for control engineers. World-renowned leading experts in the field provide their state-of-the-art survey about the extensive research that has been done over the last few years in this subject. The new technology of chaos control has major impact on novel engineering applications such as telecommunications, power systems, liquid mixing, internet technology, high-performance circuits and devices, biological systems modeling like the brain and the heart, and decision making. The book is not only aimed at active researchers in the field of chaos control involving control and systems engineers, theoretical and experimental physicists, and applied mathematicians, but also at a general audience in related fields.

Описание: Bifurcation control refers to the task of designing a controller that can modify the bifurcation properties of a given nonlinear system, so as to achieve some desirable dynamical behaviors. There exists no similar control theory-oriented book available in the market that is devoted to the subject of bifurcation control, written by control engineers for control engineers. World-renowned leading experts in the field provide their state-of-the-art survey about the extensive research that has been done over the last few years in this subject. The book is not only aimed at active researchers in the field of bifurcation control and its applications, but also at a general audience in related fields.

Описание: To a large extent, the air cargo market is a B2B service market between air cargo carriers and forwarding companies. Sellers strive to mitigate risk by engaging in advance sale of capacity via long-term contracts. However, these contracts often leave buyers with an incentive to default if unforeseen price and demand movements occur. This work proposes capacity options as an alternative contract type providing the desired flexibility and shows how capacity can be priced through option contracts. The analysis is conducted by means of an analytical multivariate optimization model under price and demand uncertainty. An application case study conducted on the basis of empirical data from a leading German air cargo carrier illustrates the financial potential. Furthermore, it is shown how capacity-option contracts integrate into the context of air cargo revenue management.
