REGIONS OF ATTRACTION AND APPLICATIONS TO CONTROL THEORY

2008  216pp  Hbk



 

S. Balint, L. Braescu and E. KaslikFaculty of Mathematics and Computer Science, West University of Timisoara, Romania

Regions of attraction are important not only for mathematics but also for the control of dynamics in mechanics, thermodynamics, electronics, chemistry and biology. Real systems in general are built so that for a given external input (control) they exhibit one (or several) equilibrium states. The transfer from a steady state to another steady state is made by changing the values of the control parameters (inputs). It is known in engineering applications that large transfers may not be possible by a single change but if the change is made in small steps the transfer can be successful. The mathematical explanation is that by small successive changes the system is conducted through the regions of attraction of asymptotically stable steady states to the desired steady state.

This volume aims to present effective methods of estimation of the regions of attraction of asymptotically stable steady states in the case of autonomous analytical differential equations and also of discrete semi-dynamical systems. It also shows how these regions can be used, e.g. in the control of the shape of a single crystal during growth; in the control of the flight of a space shuttle and in the control of a Hopfield type neural network.

RECENT ADVANCES IN DYNAMICS AND CONTROL OF NEURAL NETWORKS

2013 250pp Hbk



E. Kaslik and S. Sivasundaram,

Recent advances in dynamics and control of neural networks comprises research papers contributed by expert authors from various fields and explores many new ideas, results and directions in the rapidly growing field of dynamics and control of neural networks. It encompasses a wide range of topics including impulsive Cohen-Grossberg neural networks, dual neural network based adaptive controller, synthesis for aircraft with model uncertainties, discrete-time RTD-based cellular neural network.

The design motivation is what distinguishes neural networks from other mathematical techniques: A neural network is a processing device, either actual hardware or an algorithm, whose design was motivated by the design and functioning of human brains and components. There are several different types of neural networks, each of which has different strengths particular to their applications. The abilities of different networks can be related to their structure, dynamics, learning methods and control. Neural networks offer improved performance over conventional technologies in areas which include: adaptive control, optimization and scheduling, complex mapping, synchronization, machine vision, robust pattern detection, signal filtering, virtual reality, data segmentation, data compression, data mining, text mining, artificial life, flexible space systems etc. In general overall design process for aerospace systems typically consists of the following steps: design, analysis, and evaluation. Dynamics and controls analyses, which define the critical performance of any aerospace system, are particularly important.
