Estimation and Control of Large Scale Networked Systems is the first book that systematically summarizes results on large-scale networked systems. In addition, the book also summarizes the most recent results on structure identification of a networked system, attack identification and prevention. Readers will find the necessary mathematical knowledge for studying large-scale networked systems, as well as a systematic description of the current status of this field, the features of these systems, difficulties in dealing with state estimation and controller design, and major achievements.

Numerical examples in chapters provide strong application backgrounds and/or are abstracted from actual engineering problems, such as gene regulation networks and electricity power systems. This book is an ideal resource for researchers in the field of systems and control engineering.

Key Features

About the Authors

Tong Zhou

Tong Zhou was born in Hunan Province, China, in 1964. He received the B.S. and M.S. degrees from the University of Electronic Science and Technology of China, Chengdu, China, in 1984 and 1989, respectively, another from Kanazawa University, Ishikawa Prefecture, Japan, in 1991, and the Ph.D. degree from Osaka University, Osaka, Japan, in 1994. After visiting several universities in The Netherlands, China, and Japan, he joined Tsinghua University, Beijing, China, in 1999, where he is currently a Professor of control theory and control engineering. His current research interests include robust estimation and control, system identification, signal processing, hybrid systems, and their applications to real-world problems in molecular cell biology, spatio-temporal systems, magnetic levitation systems, and communication systems. Dr. Zhou was a recipient of the First-Class Natural Science Prize in 2003 from the Ministry of Education, China, and a recipient of the National Outstanding Youth Foundation of China in 2006. He has served as an Associate Editor of the IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON AUTOMATIC CONTROL continuously for two terms (6 years), and is now on the editorial board of AUTOMATICA (continuously in the 4th term). He is a Fellow of the IEEE.
