Control Systems

  • Octavian Iordache
Part of the Understanding Complex Systems book series (UCS)


Self-evolvability aspects for autonomous robots and high dimensional automata are illustrated.

Self-configuring schemas for self-evolvable control are correlated to general PSM frameworks. Entropy criteria prove to be useful to evaluate control architectures.

Different types of interconnections are reviewed and associated to wave equation, WE, solutions.
