Title  Diagnosis and Robust Control of Complex Building Central Chilling Systems for Enhanced Energy Performance 
Author(s)  Gao, DianCe 
Publication  Singapore, Springer Singapore, 2019. 
Description  XX, 180 p. 99 illus., 91 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book discusses enhancing the overall energy performance of building central airconditioning systems through fault diagnosis and robust control strategies. Fault diagnosis strategies aim to determine the exact cause of problems and evaluate the energy impact on the system, while robust control strategies aim to manage chilled water systems to avoid the occurrence of low deltaT syndrome and deficit flow problems. Presenting the first academic study of the diagnostic method and control mechanism of ???small temperature difference syndrome???, the book describes the highly robust and adaptive faulttolerant control method developed to overcome the influences of external disturbance on the process control in practical applications. The diagnostic technology developed provides a predictive assessment of the energy dissipation effect of the fault. This book is a valuable reference resource for researchers and designers in the areas of building energy management and built environment control, as well as for senior undergraduate and graduate students

Title  Control of Complex Systems 
Author(s)  Astr??m, Karl J;Albertos, Pedro;Blanke, Mogens;Isidori, Alberto;Schaufelberger, Walther;Sanz, Ricardo 
Publication  London, Springer London, 2001. 
Description  XII, 482 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  The world of artificial systems is reaching complexity levels that es?? cape human understanding. Surface traffic, electricity distribution, air?? planes, mobile communications, etc. , are examples that demonstrate that we are running into problems that are beyond classical scientific or engi?? neering knowledge. There is an ongoing worldwide effort to understand these systems and develop models that can capture its behavior. The reason for this work is clear, if our lack of understanding deepens, we will lose our capability to control these systems and make they behave as we want. Researchers from many different fields are trying to understand and develop theories for complex manmade systems. This book presents re?? search from the perspective of control and systems theory. The book has grown out of activities in the research program Control of Complex Systems (COSY). The program has been sponsored by the Eu?? ropean Science Foundation (ESF) which for 25 years has been one of the leading players in stimulating scientific research. ESF is a European asso?? ciation of more than 60 leading national science agencies spanning more than 20 countries. ESF covers has standing committees in Medical Sci?? ences, Life and Environmental Sciences, Physical and Engineering Sci?? ences, Humanities and Social Sciences. The COSY program was ESF's first activity in the Engineering Sciences. The program run for a period of five years starting January 1995

Title  DelayCoupled Complex Systems : and Applications to Lasers 
Author(s)  Flunkert, Valentin 
Publication  Berlin, Heidelberg, Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2011. 
Description  XIII, 180 p. 69 illus., 13 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This thesis deals with the effects of timedelay in complex nonlinear systems and in particular with its applications in complex networks, and relates it to control theory and nonlinear optics. Delays arise naturally in networks of coupled systems due to finite signal propagation speeds and are thus a key issue in many areas of physics, biology, medicine, and technology. Synchronization phenomena in these networks play an important role, e.g., in the context of learning, cognitive and pathological states in the brain, for secure communication with chaotic lasers or gene regulation. The work includes both novel results on the control of complex dynamics by timedelayed feedback and new fundamental insights into the interplay of delay and synchronization. One of the most interesting results here is a solution to the problem of complete synchronization in general networks with large coupling delay, i.e., large distances between the nodes, by giving a universal classification of networks which has a wide range of interdisciplinary applications

Title  Three Dimensional Creativity : Three Navigations to Extend our Thoughts 
Author(s)  Lee, Kwang Hyung 
Publication  Dordrecht, Springer Netherlands, 2014. 
Description  X, 87 p. 94 illus : online resource 
Abstract Note  Is creativity something that we are simply born with and cannot hone with effort? Some say that creativity cannot be cultivated. Is it true? In general, our thinking sticks to reality unless there is any external stimulation. With our thinking fixed on a certain situation, it becomes difficult to come up with a fresh idea. In this regard, three questions are suggested: (1) Question of Time: When a problem arises, question yourself on a time axis first of all. How would the matter be handled 10 or 20 years from now? (2) Question of Space: Ask yourself some questions on its spatial elements. How would the matter be handled in Saudi Arabia or in China? (3) Question of Field: Apply the given problem in a variety of fields. How would the matter be handled in the field of music or electronic engineering? The three questions suggested here are given on the three axes: time, space, and field, and this book deals with theoretical and practical aspects on the topics. In this way it is a unique book about the systematic method of developing creativity, which will have appeal to researchers and students in multidisciplinary fields from neuroscience to physics, and engineering and computer science, as well as a general public

Title  Consensus and Synchronization in Complex Networks 
Author(s)  Kocarev, Ljupco 
Publication  Berlin, Heidelberg, Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2013. 
Description  IX, 275 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  Synchronization in complex networks is one of the most captivating cooperative phenomena in nature and has been shown to be of fundamental importance in such varied circumstances as the continued existence of species, the functioning of heart pacemaker cells, epileptic seizures, neuronal firing in the feline visual cortex and cognitive tasks in humans. E.g. coupled visual and acoustic interactions make fireflies flash, crickets chirp, and an audience clap in unison. On the other hand, in distributed systems and networks, it is often necessary for some or all of the nodes to calculate some function of certain parameters, e.g. sink nodes in sensor networks being tasked with calculating the average measurement value of all the sensors or multiagent systems in which all agents are required to coordinate their speed and direction. When all nodes calculate the same function of the initial values in the system, they are said to reach consensus. Such concepts  sometimes also called state agreement, rendezvous, and observer design in control theory  have recently received considerable attention in the computational science and engineering communities. Quite generally, consensus formation among a small group of expert models of an objective process is challenging because the separate models have already been optimized in their own parameter spaces. ?? The mathematical framework for describing synchronization and consensus in natural and technical sciences is similar and the aim of this book is to provide the first comprehensive work in which synchronization and consensus are presented jointly, thereby allowing the reader to learn about the similarities and differences of the two concepts in both a systematic and applicationoriented fashion. The ten chapters have been carefully selected so as to reflect the current stateoftheart of synchronization and consensus in networked systems; in particular two chapters dealing with a novel application of synchronization concepts in machine learning have been included. ?? The book is aimed at all scientists and engineers, graduate students and practitioners, working in the fields of synchronization and related phenomena
