    This book presents research developments and novel methodologies on data-rate-constrained control and state estimation for complex networked systems with different kinds of encoding-decoding mechanisms. It describes framework of state estimator and controller design, stability and performance analysis for data-rate constrained complex systems with various kinds of encoding-decoding schemes and so forth. Simulations given in this book are constructed by applying MATLAB® software package.


    • Gives a systematic investigation of the control and state estimation for complex networked systems subject to the data rate constraint.
    • Develops control/filtering algorithms in a unified framework.
    • Includes comparisons for different coding-decoding techniques proposed.
    • Discusses theoretical value and practical application for the resource-constrained communication environment.
    • Provides performance analysis as well as the parameterizations of filters and FD units.

    This book is aimed at researchers and graduate students in electrical engineering, signal processing, control systems and complex networks.
