This second edition of Mathematical Methods in the Robust Control of Linear Stochastic Systems includes a large number of recent results in the control of linear stochastic systems. More specifically, the new results presented are: - A unified and abstract framework for Riccati type equations arising in the stochastic control - Stability and control problems for systems perturbed by homogeneous Markov processes with infinite number of states - Mixed H2 / H∞ control problem and numerical procedures - Linear differential equations with positive evolution on ordered Banach spaces with applications for stochastic systems including both multiplicative white noise and Markovian jumps represented by a Markov chain with countable infinite set of states - Kalman filtering for stochastic systems subject both to state dependent noise and Markovian jumps - H∞ reduced order filters for stochastic systems The book will appeal to graduate students, researchers in advanced control engineering, finance, mathematical systems theory, applied probability and stochastic processes, and numerical analysis. From Reviews of the First Edition: This book is concerned with robust control of stochastic systems. One of the main features is its coverage of jump Markovian systems. ... Overall, this book presents results taking into consideration both white noise and Markov chain perturbations. It is clearly written and should be useful for people working in applied mathematics and in control and systems theory. The references cited provide further reading sources. (George Yin, Mathematical Reviews, Issue 2007 m) This book considers linear time varying stochastic systems, subjected to white noise disturbances and system parameter Markovian jumping, in the context of optimal control ... robust stabilization, and disturbance attenuation. ... The material presented in the book is organized in seven chapters. ... The book is very well written and organized. ... is a valuable reference for all researchers and graduate students in applied mathematics and control engineering interested in linear stochastic time varying control systems with Markovian parameter jumping and white noise disturbances.

In this monograph the authors develop a theory for the robust control of discrete-time stochastic systems, subjected to both independent random perturbations and to Markov chains. Such systems are widely used to provide mathematical models for real processes in fields such as aerospace engineering, communications, manufacturing, finance and economy. The theory is a continuation of the authors’ work presented in their previous book entitled "Mathematical Methods in Robust Control of Linear Stochastic Systems" published by Springer in 2006. Key features: - Provides a common unifying framework for discrete-time stochastic systems corrupted with both independent random perturbations and with Markovian jumps which are usually treated separately in the control literature; - Covers preliminary material on probability theory, independent random variables, conditional expectation and Markov chains; - Proposes new numerical algorithms to solve coupled matrix algebraic Riccati equations; - Leads the reader in a natural way to the original results through a systematic presentation; - Presents new theoretical results with detailed numerical examples. The monograph is geared to researchers and graduate students in advanced control engineering, applied mathematics, mathematical systems theory and finance. It is also accessible to undergraduate students with a fundamental knowledge in the theory of stochastic systems.

It has been widely recognized nowadays the importance of introducing mathematical models that take into account possible sudden changes in the dynamical behavior of a high-integrity systems or a safety-critical system. Such systems can be found in aircraft control, nuclear power stations, robotic manipulator systems, integrated communication networks and large-scale flexible structures for space stations, and are inherently vulnerable to abrupt changes in their structures caused by component or interconnection failures. In this regard, a particularly interesting class of models is the so-called Markov jump linear systems (MJLS), which have been used in numerous applications including robotics, economics and wireless communication. Combining probability and operator theory, the present volume provides a unified and rigorous treatment of recent results in control theory of continuous-time MJLS. This unique approach is of great interest to experts working in the field of linear systems with Markovian jump parameters or in stochastic control. The volume focuses on one of the few cases of stochastic control problems with an actual explicit solution and offers material well-suited to coursework, introducing students to an interesting and active research area. The book is addressed to researchers working in control and signal processing engineering. Prerequisites include a solid background in classical linear control theory, basic familiarity with continuous-time Markov chains and probability theory, and some elementary knowledge of operator theory. ​

Linear Stochastic Systems, originally published in 1988, is today as comprehensive a reference to the theory of linear discrete-time-parameter systems as ever. Its most outstanding feature is the unified presentation, including both input-output and state space representations of stochastic linear systems, together with their interrelationships. The author first covers the foundations of linear stochastic systems and then continues through to more sophisticated topics including the fundamentals of stochastic processes and the construction of stochastic systems; an integrated exposition of the theories of prediction, realization (modeling), parameter estimation, and control; and a presentation of stochastic adaptive control theory. Written in a clear, concise manner and accessible to graduate students, researchers, and teachers, this classic volume also includes background material to make it self-contained and has complete proofs for all the principal results of the book. Furthermore, this edition includes many corrections of errata collected over the years.

This book provides a unified collection of important, recent results for the design of robust controllers for uncertain systems. Most of the results presented are based on H? control theory, or its stochastic counterpart, risk sensitive control theory.Central to the philosophy of the book is the notion of an uncertain system. Uncertain systems are considered using several different uncertainty modeling schemes. These include norm bounded uncertainty, integral quadratic constraint (IQC) uncertainty and a number of stochastic uncertainty descriptions. In particular, the authors examine stochastic uncertain systems in which the uncertainty is outlined by a stochastic version of the IQC uncertainty description.For each class of uncertain systems covered in the book, corresponding robust control problems are defined and solutions discussed.
