About this book


The Mohammed Dahleh symposium brought together leading researchers in several areas of engineering and science. Many of the presentations focused on new emerging research areas of key significance. These new areas have in common that the dynamics and control theory and methods provide the appropriate framework for the understanding of the corresponding phenomena, while at the same time providing many of the tools necessary for their application to relevant technologies. Examples of these opportunities include the areas of systems biology, quantum feedback and control, fluid dynamics, and control applications in nanotechnology. This collected volume demonstrates the importance of these emerging areas in the current research agenda in science and technology and shows that a unique opportunity exists to drastically extend the scope and impact of dynamics and control methods far beyond their traditional areas of application in engineering.
