  1. Adaptive systems : an introduction

    Mareels, Iven, 1959-
    Boston : Birkhäuser, 1996.

    Introducing readers to adaptive systems in a rigorous but elementary fashion, this text emphasizes the mainstream developments in adaptive control and signal processing of linear discrete time systems. A unified framework is developed whereby the reader can analyze and understand any adaptive system in the literature. The so-called equilibrium analysis facilitates an understanding of the limitations and potential of adaptive systems in a transparent fashion; while the behavioural approach to linear systems plays an essential role at some key points in the text. So-called universal controllers are presented in some detail. Each chapter is accompanied by exercises that aim to develop certain aspects of the theory, as well as to give the reader a better understanding of the actual behaviour of adaptive systems.

  2. Adaptive Systems : an Introduction

    Loosely speaking, adaptive systems are designed to deal with, to adapt to, chang ing environmental conditions whilst maintaining performance objectives. Over the years, the theory of adaptive systems evolved from relatively simple and intuitive concepts to a complex multifaceted theory dealing with stochastic, nonlinear and infinite dimensional systems. This book provides a first introduction to the theory of adaptive systems. The book grew out of a graduate course that the authors taught several times in Australia, Belgium, and The Netherlands for students with an engineering and/or mathemat ics background. When we taught the course for the first time, we felt that there was a need for a textbook that would introduce the reader to the main aspects of adaptation with emphasis on clarity of presentation and precision rather than on comprehensiveness. The present book tries to serve this need. We expect that the reader will have taken a basic course in linear algebra and mul tivariable calculus. Apart from the basic concepts borrowed from these areas of mathematics, the book is intended to be self contained.Loosely speaking, adaptive systems are designed to deal with, to adapt to, chang- ing environmental conditions whilst maintaining performance objectives.
