About these proceedings


This book comprises a selection of papers that were first presented at the Robustness in Identification and Control Workshop, held in Siena, July 30 - August 2, 1998. These are the latest contributions to the field, from leading researchers worldwide. The common theme underlying all of the contributions is the interplay between information, uncertainty and complexity in dealing with modelling, identification and control of dynamical systems. Papers cover recent developments in research areas such as identification for control and the classical area of robust control. There are a number of real-world case studies where the most advanced robustness analysis and synthesis techniques are applied to resolve previously unsolved problems. The relevance of the topic to the system engineering field, and the excellent scientific level of the contributions combine to make this book an important acquisition for engineers, control theorists and applied mathematicians.
