Book DetailsProceedings of Symposia in Pure MathematicsVolume: 64; 1999; 341 ppMSC: Primary 49; 53; 93; Secondary 22; 60; 35;
This volume presents selections from talks given at the AMS Summer Research Institute on Differential Geometry and Control held at the University of Colorado (Boulder). Included articles were refereed according to the highest standards. This collection provides a coherent global perspective on recent developments and important open problems in geometric control theory. Readers will find in this book an excellent source of current challenging research problems and results.
ReadershipGraduate students, researchers, educators and applied mathematicians working in control theory; electrical, mechanical and aerospace engineers.
