This book provides a representative set of modern methodologies and applications, including new topics in the field, discussing a wide range of issues and treating them in depth. The book describes analytical processes for fault diagnosis of automatic control systems, examines modern sensors and actuators as well as measurement techniques, considers multidimensional feedback control and image restoration procedures, among other topics.
". . .each chosen subject is treated in sufficient depth, so that a reader interested in the respective part of the control domain will receive enough information to be able to understand the role that topic can play in [present-day] control systems. . .. . . .can be used by researchers that are concerned with new topics of control; they can find good starting points, basic principles of several new methods, references to more specific texts, ideas about the open problems."
