The Second Shell Process Control Workshop covers the proceedings of a workshop of the same name, held in Houston, Texas on December 12-16, 1988. The said workshop seeks to improve the communication process between academic researchers, industrial researchers, and the engineering community in the field of process control, and in turn improve understanding of the nature of the control problems. The book covers topics such as automatic tuning and adaptive control; an operator control theory approach to the shell standard control problem; discrete time-adaptive predictive control; and the designing of a control system. Also included are topics such as optimal control and model identification; fundamental process control; statistical process control; and interfaces with process control. The text is recommended for researchers and practitioners in the field of engineering who would like to know more about process control and modeling.

MATLAB: A Practical Introduction to Programming and Problem Solving, winner of TAA’s 2017 Textbook Excellence Award ("Texty"), guides the reader through both programming and built-in functions to easily exploit MATLAB's extensive capabilities for tackling engineering and scientific problems. Assuming no knowledge of programming, this book starts with programming concepts, such as variables, assignments, and selection statements, moves on to loops, and then solves problems using both the programming concept and the power of MATLAB. The fifth edition has been updated to reflect the functionality of the current version of MATLAB (R2018a), including the addition of local functions in scripts, the new string type, coverage of recently introduced functions to import data from web sites, and updates to the Live Editor and App Designer. Presents programming concepts and MATLAB built-in functions side by side, giving students the ability to program efficiently and exploit the power of MATLAB to solve technical problems Offers sections on common pitfalls and programming guidelines that direct students to best practice procedures Tests conceptual understanding of the material with Quick Questions! and Practice sections within each chapter NEW TO THE FIFTH EDITION Use of MATLAB Version R2018a A revised Text Manipulation chapter, which includes manipulating character vectors as well as the new string type Introduction to alternate MATLAB platforms, including MATLAB Mobile Local functions within scripts The new output format for most expression types Introduction to the RESTFUL web functions which import data from web sites Increased coverage of App Designer Introduction to recording audio from a built-in device such as a microphone Modified and new end-of-chapter exercises More coverage of data structures including categorical arrays and tables Increased coverage of built-in functions in MATLAB
