Control and Dynamic Systems: Advances in Theory and Application, Volume 15 deals with the application of control and dynamic systems to complex and/or large-scale engineering systems. It presents various techniques for approaching applied systems problems. This book first discusses optimization policies for clinical drug prescription. It then turns to the methods of modeling chemical engineering systems and water resource systems. This book also examines the optimization of large scale structures and advances in linear adaptive filtering theory. This book is a useful reference for those seeking a comprehensive text about optimization techniques for chemical engineering systems and large-scale systems.
