The primary concentration of this e-book is the regulate of continuous-time/continuous-space nonlinear platforms. utilizing new strategies that hire the max-plus algebra, the writer addresses numerous periods of nonlinear keep an eye on difficulties, together with nonlinear optimum keep watch over difficulties and nonlinear robust/H-infinity keep watch over and estimation difficulties. a number of numerical strategies are hired, together with a max-plus eigenvector process and an procedure that avoids the curse-of-dimensionality. The max-plus-based tools tested during this paintings belong to a completely new type of numerical equipment for the answer of nonlinear keep watch over difficulties and their linked Hamilton–Jacobi–Bellman (HJB) PDEs; those tools aren't such as both of the generally used finite aspect or attribute methods. Max-Plus equipment for Nonlinear keep watch over and Estimation can be of curiosity to utilized mathematicians, engineers, and graduate scholars drawn to the keep an eye on of nonlinear structures during the implementation of lately built numerical equipment.
