**Discrete-Event Control of Stochastic Networks: Multimodularity and Regularity**

by Eitan Altman, Bruno Gaujal, Arie Hordijk

**Publisher**: Springer 2003**ISBN/ASIN**: 3540203583**ISBN-13**: 9783540203582**Number of pages**: 325

**Description**:

Opening new directions in research in both discrete event dynamic systems as well as in stochastic control, this volume focuses on a wide class of control and of optimization problems over sequences of integer numbers. This is a counterpart of convex optimization in the setting of discrete optimization. The theory developed is applied to the control of stochastic discrete-event dynamic systems.

**Control and Nonlinearity**

by

**Jean-Michel Coron**-

**American Mathematical Society**

This book presents methods to study the controllability and the stabilization of nonlinear control systems in finite and infinite dimensions. Examples are given where nonlinearities turn out to be essential to get controllability or stabilization.
