Suitable as both a reference for practicing engineers and a text for agraduate course in adaptive control systems, this book is a self-containedcompendium of adaptive control algorithms that can be easily implemented.These algorithms are suitable for a wide variety of multiple input-outputcontrol systems with uncertainty and external disturbances. In addition,the text emphasizes design of algorithms and to representative applicationsin flight control, flexible structure control, robotics, and drug-infusioncontrol. Topics covered include basic theory of adaptive control, extensionsof the basic adaptive algorithm, alleviation of the strictly positivereal constraints, robust design procedures, adaptive control of time-varyingand nonlinear systems, design of model reference controllers, and casestudies.
