Stability and Stabilization of Time-Delay Systems : An Eigenvalue-Based Approach
This text bridges the fields of control (analysis and feedback design, robustness, and uncertainty) and numerical analysis (explicit algorithms and methods). The authors present solutions of the (robust) stability analysis and stabilization problem of linear time-delay systems, which are the result of this cross-fertilization of control theory, numerical linear algebra, numerical bifurcation analysis, and optimization.
The book is organized into three parts: Part I addresses the analysis of linear time-delay systems from a stability point of view. Part II is devoted to synthesis problems with the focus on stabilization. In Part III the authors present a wide class of applications, including congestion analysis in high-performance networks, output feedback stabilization using the delays as controller parameters, predictor-type controllers, consensus problems in traffic flows, and stability analysis of various delay models in the biosciences.
Audience: Researchers and graduate students in electrical and mechanical engineering, computer science, biology, and applied mathematics will benefit from this book.
