Summary and Info
"Control theory, developed in the twentieth century, is the subject of this compilation of 25 annotated reprints of seminal papers representing the evolution of the control field. Carefully assembled by a distinguished editorial board to ensure that each paper contributes to the whole, rather than exist as a separate entity, this is the first book to document the research and accomplishments that have driven the practice of control. Control Theory: Twenty-Five Seminal Papers (1932–1981) begins with an introduction describing the major developments in control, linking each to a selected paper. Each paper includes a commentary that lends a contemporary spin and places the contributions of each paper and its impact on the field into proper perspective. The material covers the period between 1932 to 1981 and addresses a broad spectrum of topics. The earliest paper is the famous “Regeneration Theory” by Harry Nyquist, which laid the foundation for a frequency-domain approach to stability analysis of linear control systems and introduced the Nyquist criterion. The most recent paper in the volume, “Feedback and Optimal Sensitivity” by George Zames, marked the beginning of the “robustness” era. This comprehensive volume is a valuable resource for control researchers and engineers worldwide. Also, it will be of great interest to engineers and scientists in related fields, such as communications, signal processing, circuits, power, and applied mathematics. About the Editor Tamer Basar is a prolific scientist and author who has published more than 150 journal articles, books and book chapters, and numerous conference publications in the general areas of optimal, robust, and adaptive control, large-scale and decentralized systems and control, dynamic games, stochastic processes and control, estimation and information theory, and mathematical economics. His current research interests are robust nonlinear and adaptive control and identification, control of communication networks, and risk-sensitive estimation and control. Dr. Basar has held positions in many scientific organizations and has received several distinguished awards, including the 1993 Medal of Science of Turkey. He is currently the Fredric G. and Elizabeth H. Nearing Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign and a research professor at the Coordinated Science Laboratory. Dr. Basar is an IEEE Fellow and a member of the National Academy of Engineering." Sponsored by: IEEE Control Systems Society
