Discrete-Event Control of Stochastic Networks: Multimodularity and Regularity
by Eitan Altman, Bruno Gaujal, Arie Hordijk
Publisher: Springer 2003
Number of pages: 325
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.

Introduction to fuzzy control with a broad treatment of topics including direct fuzzy control, nonlinear analysis, identification/ estimation, adaptive and supervisory control, and applications, with many examples, exercises and design problems.
by R. Timman
The lectures present an introduction to modern control theory. Calculus of variations is used to study the problem of determining the optimal control for a deterministic system without constraints and for one with constraints.
