Control and Dynamic Systems: Advances in Theory in Applications, Volume 29: Advances in Algorithms and Computational Techniques in Dynamic Systems Control, Part 2 of 3 discusses developments in algorithms and computational techniques for control and dynamic systems.
This volume discusses some computational problems which arose in the applications of Kalman filters. It also examines system fault detection techniques; computational techniques in angle-only tracking filtering; development of real-time knowledge of system parameters; and algorithms for decentralized systems with application to stream water quality. This book is an important reference for practitioners in the field who want a comprehensive source of techniques with significant applied implications.
