By Alessandro Astolfi, Lorenzo Marconi

This publication is a tribute to Prof. Alberto Isidori at the celebration of his sixty fifth birthday. Prof. Isidori’s proli?c, pioneering and high-impact learn task has spanned over 35 years. all through his profession, Prof. Isidori has constructed ground-breaking effects, has initiated researchdirections and has contributed towardsthe foundationofnonlinear controltheory.In addition,his commitment to provide an explanation for elaborate concerns and di?cult ideas in an easy and rigorous means and to encourage younger researchers has been instrumental to the highbrow progress of the nonlinear keep watch over neighborhood all over the world. the amount collects 27 contributions written through a complete of fifty two researchers. The primary writer of every contribution has been chosen one of the - searchers who've labored with Prof. Isidori, have in?uenced his study job, or have had the privilege and honour of being his PhD scholars. The contributions tackle a signi?cant variety of regulate issues, together with th- retical concerns, complex functions, rising regulate instructions and educational works. the variety of the parts coated, the variety of individuals and their foreign status supply proof of the effect of Prof. Isidori within the keep watch over and platforms concept groups. The booklet has been divided into six components: process research, Optimization tools, suggestions layout, law, Geometric tools and Asymptotic research, re?ecting very important regulate components which were strongly in- enced and, often times, pioneered via Prof. Isidori.

Lennart Ljung's method id: concept for the person is a whole, coherent description of the idea, technique, and perform of method identity. This thoroughly revised moment version introduces subspace tools, tools that make the most of frequency area information, and basic non-linear black field equipment, together with neural networks and neuro-fuzzy modeling.

This ebook reviews at the techniques and concepts mentioned on the good attended ICRA2005 Workshop on "Principles and perform of software program improvement in Robotics", held in Barcelona, Spain, April 18 2005. It collects contributions that describe the cutting-edge in software program improvement for the Robotics area.

**Phase Transitions (Primers in Complex Systems) **

Part transitions--changes among diverse states of association in a fancy system--have lengthy helped to provide an explanation for physics suggestions, corresponding to why water freezes right into a good or boils to develop into a fuel. How could section transitions make clear vital difficulties in organic and ecological complicated platforms?

**Modeling Conflict Dynamics with Spatio-temporal Data**

This authored monograph provides using dynamic spatiotemporal modeling instruments for the identity of complicated underlying techniques in clash, resembling diffusion, relocation, heterogeneous escalation, and volatility. The authors use principles from statistics, sign processing, and ecology, and supply a predictive framework which will assimilate information and provides self belief estimates at the predictions.

F. Lemma 2), there exists a neighborhood Nc of c such that for any d ∈ Nc ∩ S, Uniformly Universal Inputs 17 |Fd [v](tc )| ≥ τc /2 . n Since S is compact, there exist c1 , c2 , . . , cn such that S ⊆ i=1 Nci . It then follows that for any d ∈ S, there exists some 1 ≤ j ≤ n such that |Fd [v](tj )| ≥ τcj /2 , (15) where tj = tcj . Let μ = (μ0 , μ1 , . . , μk−1 ) ∈ Rmk be given. Let {ωj } be a sequence of analytic functions deﬁned on [0, T ] such that • • • (i) ωj (0) = μi for 0 ≤ i ≤ k − 1, j ≥ 1; ωj → v in the L1 norm (as functions deﬁned on [0, T ]); and for some M ≥ 1, ωj ∞ ≤ M for all j ≥ 1.

Gm are analytic vector ﬁelds deﬁned on M. Inputs are measurable essentially bounded maps u : [0, T ] −→ Rm deﬁned on [0, T ] for suitable choices of T > 0. In general, ϕ(t, x, u) denotes the state trajectory of (21) corresponding to an input u and initial state x, deﬁned at least for small t. Fix any two states p, q ∈ M and take an input u. We say p and q are distinguished by u, denoted by p ∼u q, if h(ϕ( · , p, u)) = h(ϕ( · , q, u)) (considered as functions deﬁned on the common domain of ϕ( · , p, u) and ϕ( · , q, u)); otherwise we say p and q cannot be distinguished by u, denoted by p ∼u q.
