Control and Dynamic Systems: Advances in Theory and Application, Volume 23: Decentralized/Distributed Control and Dynamic Systems, Part 2 of 3 is a second volume of a trilogy that deals with the advances in techniques for the analysis and synthesis of decentralized or distributed control and dynamic systems. It includes chapters on techniques dealing with complex computational issues in decentralized control systems. This book discusses the time allocation of time-critical resources of decentralized but coordinated systems. It also deals with issues of reliable or robust decentralized control systems, model reduction for large-scale systems, and linear quadratic control problem. This book ends with powerful techniques for solving problems in decentralized control systems. Many practitioners will find this text useful because of its various complex real-world applications.
