Control and Dynamic Systems: Advances in Theory and Applications, Volume 50: Robust Control System Techniques and Applications, Part 1 of 2 is a two-volume sequence devoted to the issues and application of robust control systems techniques. This volume is composed of 10 chapters and begins with a presentation of the important techniques for dealing with conflicting design objectives in control systems. The subsequent chapters describe the robustness techniques of systems using differential-difference equations; the design of a wide class of robust nonlinear systems, the techniques for dealing with the problems resulting from the use of observers in robust systems design, and the effective techniques for the robust control on non-linear time varying of tracking control systems with uncertainties. These topics are followed by discussions of the effective techniques for the robust control on non-linear time varying of tracking control systems with uncertainties and for incorporating adaptive control techniques into a (non-adaptive) robust control design. Other chapters present techniques for achieving exponential and robust stability for a rather general class of nonlinear systems, techniques in modeling uncertain dynamics for robust control systems design, and techniques for the optimal synthesis of these systems. The last chapters provide a generalized eigenproblem solution for both singular and nonsingular system cases. These chapters also look into the stability robustness design for discrete-time systems. This book will be of value to process and systems engineers, designers, and researchers.

Giving you a combination of general principles, applied practice and information on the state-of-the-art, this book will give you the information you need to incorporate the latest systems and technologies into your building projects. It focuses on a number of important issues, such as: Network communication protocols and standards, including the application of the internet. The integration and interfacing of building automation subsystems and multiple building systems. Local and supervisory control strategies for typical building services systems. The automation system configuration and technologies for air-conditioning control, lighting system control, security and access control, and fire safety control. Whether you’re a project manager or engineer planning the systems set-up for a high value building, or a building engineering or management student looking for a practical guide to automation and intelligent systems, this book provides a valuable introduction and overview.

Visual Data Mining—Opening the Black Box Knowledge discovery holds the promise of insight into large, otherwise opaque datasets. Thenatureofwhatmakesaruleinterestingtoauserhasbeendiscussed 1 widely but most agree that it is a subjective quality based on the practical u- fulness of the information. Being subjective, the user needs to provide feedback to the system and, as is the case for all systems, the sooner the feedback is given the quicker it can in?uence the behavior of the system. There have been some impressive research activities over the past few years but the question to be asked is why is visual data mining only now being - vestigated commercially? Certainly, there have been arguments for visual data 2 mining for a number of years – Ankerst and others argued in 2002 that current (autonomous and opaque) analysis techniques are ine?cient, as they fail to - rectly embed the user in dataset exploration and that a better solution involves the user and algorithm being more tightly coupled. Grinstein stated that the “current state of the art data mining tools are automated, but the perfect data mining tool is interactive and highly participatory,” while Han has suggested that the “data selection and viewing of mining results should be fully inter- tive, the mining process should be more interactive than the current state of the 2 art and embedded applications should be fairly automated . ” A good survey on 3 techniques until 2003 was published by de Oliveira and Levkowitz .
