Advanced Mathematical Tools for Automatic Control Engineers: Volume 2 book cover

Advanced Mathematical Tools for Automatic Control Engineers: Volume 2

Stochastic Systems

The second volume of this work continues the approach of the first volume, providing mathematical tools for the control engineer and examining such topics as random variables and sequences, iterative logarithmic and large number laws, differential equations, stochastic measurements and optimization, discrete martingales and probability space. It includes proofs of all theorems and contains many examples with solutions.It is written for researchers, engineers and advanced students who wish to increase their familiarity with different topics of modern and classical mathematics related to system and automatic control theories. It also has applications to game theory, machine learning and intelligent systems.

Audience
Undergraduate, graduate, research students of automotive control engineering, aerospace engineering, mechanical engineering and control in Chemical engineering.

Reviews

  • "This is a very well-written introduction to the basics of probability theory, stochastic analysis and their applications. Automatic control engineers will surely find much valuable material on different topics of modern and classical mathematics related to system and automatic control theories. In addition, this book may well serve as a reference book for researchers in applied probability theory and stochastic analysis…. Overall, this book is self-contained, well-organized, and clearly presented. It is a welcome addition to the existing collection of books in the field of probability and stochastic analysis, booth as a textbook at the graduate level and a reference book for researchers in this area."--Mathematical Reviews
