About this book

Introduction

Suitable either as a reference or as a text for a graduate course in adaptive control systems, this book is a self-contained compendium of easily implementable adaptive control algorithms that have been developed and applied by the authors for over 10 years. These algorithms do not require explicit process parameter identification and have been successfully applied to a wide variety of engineering problems including flexible structure control, blood pressure control and robotics. In general, these algorithms are suitable for a wide class of multiple input-output control systems containing significant uncertainty as well as disturbances.
