This monograph provides the reader with a systematic treatment of robust filter design, a key issue in systems, control and signal processing, because of the fact that the inevitable presence of uncertainty in system and signal models often degrades the filtering performance and may even cause instability. The methods described are therefore not subject to the rigorous assumptions of traditional Kalman filtering. The monograph is concerned with robust filtering for various dynamical systems with parametric uncertainties and focuses on parameter-dependent approaches to filter design. Classical filtering schemes, like H2 filtering and H¥ filtering, are addressed and emerging issues such as robust filtering with constraints on communication channels and signal frequency characteristics are discussed. The text features:
· design approaches to robust filters arranged according to varying complexity level and emphasizing robust filtering in the parameter-dependent framework for the first time;
· guidance on the use of special realistic phenomena or factors to describe problems more accurately and to improve filtering performance;
· a unified linear matrix inequality formulation of design approaches for easy and effective filter design;
· demonstration of the techniques of matrix decoupling technique, the generalized Kalman?Yakubovich?Popov lemma, the free weighting matrix technique and the delay modelling approach, in robust filtering;
· numerous easy-to-follow simulation examples, graphical and tabular illustrations to help the reader understand the filter design approaches developed; and
· an account of emerging issues on robust filtering for research to inspire future investigation.
Robust Filtering for Uncertain Systems will be of interest to academic researchers specializing in linear, robust and optimal control and estimation and to practitioners working in tracking and network control or signal filtering, detection and estimation. Graduate students learning control and systems theory, signal processing or applied mathematics will also find the book to be a valuable resource.
To satisfy demands for software systems that collect, organize and utilize pollution prevention auditing, design and implementation, hundreds of software companies have developed and are marketing software systems that perform these functions.
This book is an exhaustive survey and evaluation of the hundreds of pollution prevention software systems and serves as a practical guide for the buyer and user, as well as the managers and compliance professionals that need to know the capabilities and limitations of these systems.
The handbook opens with an overview of chemical tracking systems from the regulator's perspective, which is the driving force for implementation of such systems. The introductory chapter emphasizes the impossibility of true chemical tracking in real-world manufacturing operations, but the true need for chemical management systems.
Because cost and financial control is key to the success of pollution prevention, the handbook then presents the capabilities of available systems. The book focuses on applications such as risk assessment, remediation systems, chemical tracking/management, post pollution prevention, financial analysis, cost impact analysis; and finally, tools for waste reduction planning and control.
Information is always required by organizations of coastal states about the movements, identities and intentions of vessels sailing in the waters of interest to them, which may be coastal waters, straits, inland waterways, rivers, lakes or open seas. This interest may stem from defense requirements or from needs for the protection of off-shore resources, enhanced search and rescue services, deterrence of smuggling, drug trafficking and other illegal activities and/or for providing vessel traffic services for safe and efficient navigation and protection of the environment.
Protect yourself during your divorce Alleviate stress and take control of your divorce Coping with divorce can be an extremely stressful time in life. If the divorce is high conflict and involves children, the stress can be greater. If you are trying to deal with a difficult or toxic ex, you may wonder what you can do. To help alleviate this stress, many lawyers recommend tracking any meetings with the ex. This journal will help keep track of the pertinent details of meetings with the ex, especially when you need to exchange the children. Inside you can: - record dates and times for future meetings - provide a record of meetings and any problems at those meetings - write down the actual time the ex arrived - keep track of changes made - keep track of details of the meeting - catalog any video or pictures taken.
Focusses on the industry and use of mathematical methods, in particular the Monte Carlo method as a tool that can support and improve the engineering of systems. The application of the Monte Carlo method to system engineering is a new concept and the Monte Carlo method allows serious mathematical treatment of real-world industrial systems. This book which includes a large number of worked examples from real industrial problems, will prove a valuable reference source for students, researchers and engineers.<br> <br> It presents a unified approach to time-dependent system behavior in which the Monte Carlo method serves as a tool to obtain solutions to real-world challenges. The author suggest that efficiency can be increased through this integrated approach which combines previously independent considerations such as product reliability, maintenance requirements and the availability of spare parts.<br> <br> Features include:<br> <br> * Comprehensive coverage of the basic theory behind systems engineering and the Monte Carlo method enabling the reader to understand the concepts involved<br> <br> * Description of the method from the basic estimation of simple statistical processes, through the evaluation of multidimensional integrals to the solution of complex transport equations<br> <br> * Extensive examples detailing practical industrial applications for each of the techniques presented<br> <br> * Accompanying software (available via ftp) relating to specific examples which allows the reader to use the methods described to solve practical problems<br> <br> * Discussion of a variety of analytical tools from classical probabilistic methods to the concepts of event distribution, aging and Markovian methods explaining how these fit into the general systems engineering framework.
