This book assembles new methods showing the automotive engineer for the first time how hybrid vehicle configurations can be modeled as systems with discrete and continuous controls. These hybrid systems describe naturally and compactly the networks of embedded systems which use elements such as integrators, hysteresis, state-machines and logical rules to describe the evolution of continuous and discrete dynamics and arise inevitably when modeling hybrid electric vehicles. They can throw light on systems which may otherwise be too complex or recondite. Hybrid Systems, Optimal Control and Hybrid Vehicles shows the reader how to formulate and solve control problems which satisfy multiple objectives which may be arbitrary and complex with contradictory influences on fuel consumption, emissions and drivability. The text introduces industrial engineers, postgraduates and researchers to the theory of hybrid optimal control problems. A series of novel algorithmic developments provides tools for solving engineering problems of growing complexity in the field of hybrid vehicles. Important topics of real relevance rarely found in text books and research publications—switching costs, sensitivity of discrete decisions and there impact on fuel savings, etc.—are discussed and supported with practical applications. These demonstrate the contribution of optimal hybrid control in predictive energy management, advanced powertrain calibration, and the optimization of vehicle configuration with respect to fuel economy, lowest emissions and smoothest drivability. Numerical issues such as computing resources, simplifications and stability are treated to enable readers to assess such complex systems. To help industrial engineers and managers with project decision-making, solutions for many important problems in hybrid vehicle control are provided in terms of requirements, benefits and risks.

The widespread use of adaptation techniques has helped to meet the increased demand for new applications. From adaptive signal processing to cross layer design, Adaptation in Wireless Communications covers all aspects of adaptation in wireless communications in a two-volume set. Each volume provides a unified framework for understanding adaptation and relates various specializations through common terminologies. In addition to simplified state-of-the-art cross layer design approaches, they also describe advanced techniques, such as adaptive resource management, 4G communications, and energy and mobility aware MAC protocols.

Dieses Lehrbuch beschäftigt sich mit den zentralen Gebieten einer maßtheoretisch orientierten Wahrscheinlichkeitstheorie im Umfang einer zweisemestrigen Vorlesung. Nach den Grundlagen werden Grenzwertsätze und schwache Konvergenz behandelt. Es folgt die Darstellung und Betrachtung der stochastischen Abhängigkeit durch die bedingte Erwartung, die mit der Radon-Nikodym-Ableitung realisiert wird. Sie wird angewandt auf die Theorie der stochastischen Prozesse, die nach der allgemeinen Konstruktion aus der Untersuchung von Martingalen und Markov-Prozessen besteht. Neu in einem Lehrbuch über allgemeine Wahrscheinlichkeitstheorie ist eine Einführung in die stochastische Analysis von Semimartingalen auf der Grundlage einer geeigneten Stetigkeitsbedingung mit Anwendungen auf die Theorie der Finanzmärkte. Das Buch enthält zahlreiche Übungen, teilweise mit Lösungen. Neben der Theorie vertiefen Anmerkungen, besonders zu mathematischen Modellen für Phänomene der Realität, das Verständnis.​

Controlled stochastic processes with discrete time form a very interest ing and meaningful field of research which attracts widespread attention. At the same time these processes are used for solving of many applied problems in the queueing theory, in mathematical economics. in the theory of controlled technical systems, etc. . In this connection, methods of the theory of controlled processes constitute the every day instrument of many specialists working in the areas mentioned. The present book is devoted to the rather new area, that is, to the optimal control theory with functional constraints. This theory is close to the theory of multicriteria optimization. The compromise between the mathematical rigor and the big number of meaningful examples makes the book attractive for professional mathematicians and for specialists who ap ply mathematical methods in different specific problems. Besides. the book contains setting of many new interesting problems for further invf'stigatioll. The book can form the basis of special courses in the theory of controlled stochastic processes for students and post-graduates specializing in the ap plied mathematics and in the control theory of complex systf'ms. The grounding of graduating students of mathematical department is sufficient for the perfect understanding of all the material. The book con tains the extensive Appendix where the necessary knowledge ill Borel spaces and in convex analysis is collected. All the meaningful examples can be also understood by readers who are not deeply grounded in mathematics.

Constrained Control of Uncertain, Time-Varying, Discrete-Time Systems

A comprehensive development of interpolating control, this monograph demonstrates the reduced computational complexity of a ground-breaking technique compared with the established model predictive control. The text deals with the regulation problem for linear, time-invariant, discrete-time uncertain dynamical systems having polyhedral state and control constraints, with and without disturbances, and under state or output feedback. For output feedback a non-minimal state-space representation is used with old inputs and outputs as state variables. Constrained Control of Uncertain, Time-Varying, Discrete-time Systems details interpolating control in both its implicit and explicit forms. In the former at most two linear-programming or one quadratic-programming problem are solved on-line at each sampling instant to yield the value of the control variable. In the latter the control law is shown to be piecewise affine in the state, and so the state space is partitioned into polyhedral cells so that at each sampling interval the cell to which the measured state belongs must be determined. Interpolation is performed between vertex control, and a user-chosen control law in its maximal admissible set surrounding the origin. Novel proofs of recursive feasibility and asymptotic stability of the vertex control law, and of the interpolating control law are given. Algorithms for implicit and explicit interpolating control are presented in such a way that the reader may easily realize them. Each chapter includes illustrative examples, and comparisons with model predictive control in which the disparity in computational complexity is shown to be particularly in favour of interpolating control for high-order systems, and systems with uncertainty. Furthermore, the performance of the two methods proves similar except in those cases when a solution cannot be found with model predictive control at all. The book concludes with two high dimensional examples and a benchmark robust model predictive control problem: the non-isothermal continuously-stirred-tank reactor. For academic control researchers and students or for control engineers interested in implementing constrained control systems Constrained Control of Uncertain, Time-Varying, Discrete-time Systems will provide an attractive low-complexity control alternative for cases in which model predictive control is currently attempted.

Markov Decision Processes (MDPs) are a mathematical framework for modeling sequential decision problems under uncertainty as well as Reinforcement Learning problems. Written by experts in the field, this book provides a global view of current research using MDPs in Artificial Intelligence. It starts with an introductory presentation of the fundamental aspects of MDPs (planning in MDPs, Reinforcement Learning, Partially Observable MDPs, Markov games and the use of non-classical criteria). Then it presents more advanced research trends in the domain and gives some concrete examples using illustrative applications.
