A comprehensive treatment of model-based fuzzy controlsystems This volume offers full coverage of the systematic framework forthe stability and design of nonlinear fuzzy control systems.Building on the Takagi-Sugeno fuzzy model, authors Tanaka and Wangaddress a number of important issues in fuzzy control systems,including stability analysis, systematic design procedures,incorporation of performance specifications, numericalimplementations, and practical applications. Issues that have not been fully treated in existing texts, suchas stability analysis, systematic design, and performance analysis,are crucial to the validity and applicability of fuzzy controlmethodology. Fuzzy Control Systems Design and Analysis addressesthese issues in the framework of parallel distributed compensation,a controller structure devised in accordance with the fuzzymodel. This balanced treatment features an overview of fuzzy control,modeling, and stability analysis, as well as a section on the useof linear matrix inequalities (LMI) as an approach to fuzzy designand control. It also covers advanced topics in model-based fuzzycontrol systems, including modeling and control of chaotic systems.Later sections offer practical examples in the form of detailedtheoretical and experimental studies of fuzzy control in roboticsystems and a discussion of future directions in the field.

This user-friendly new edition reflects a modern and accessible approach to experimental design and analysis Design and Analysis of Experiments, Volume 1, Second Edition provides a general introduction to the philosophy, theory, and practice of designing scientific comparative experiments and also details the intricacies that are often encountered throughout the design and analysis processes. With the addition of extensive numerical examples and expanded treatment of key concepts, this book further addresses the needs of practitioners and successfully provides a solid understanding of the relationship between the quality of experimental design and the validity of conclusions. This Second Edition continues to provide the theoretical basis of the principles of experimental design in conjunction with the statistical framework within which to apply the fundamental concepts. The difference between experimental studies and observational studies is addressed, along with a discussion of the various components of experimental design: the error-control design, the treatment design, and the observation design. A series of error-control designs are presented based on fundamental design principles, such as randomization, local control (blocking), the Latin square principle, the split-unit principle, and the notion of factorial treatment structure. This book also emphasizes the practical aspects of designing and analyzing experiments and features: Increased coverage of the practical aspects of designing and analyzing experiments, complete with the steps needed to plan and construct an experiment A case study that explores the various types of interaction between both treatment and blocking factors, and numerical and graphical techniques are provided to analyze and interpret these interactions Discussion of the important distinctions between two types of blocking factors and their role in the process of drawing statistical inferences from an experiment A new chapter devoted entirely to repeated measures, highlighting its relationship to split-plot and split-block designs Numerical examples using SAS® to illustrate the analyses of data from various designs and to construct factorial designs that relate the results to the theoretical derivations Design and Analysis of Experiments, Volume 1, Second Edition is an ideal textbook for first-year graduate courses in experimental design and also serves as a practical, hands-on reference for statisticians and researchers across a wide array of subject areas, including biological sciences, engineering, medicine, pharmacology, psychology, and business.

In textbooks and courses in statistics, substantive and measurement issues are rarely, if at all, considered. Similarly, textbooks and courses in measurement virtually ignore design and analytic questions, and research design textbooks and courses pay little attention to analytic and measurement issues. This fragmentary approach fosters a lack of appreciation of the interrelations and interdependencies among the various aspects of the research endeavor. Pedhazur and Schmelkin's goal is to help readers become proficient in these aspects of research and their interrelationships, and to use that information in a more integrated manner. The authors offer extensive commentaries on inputs and outputs of computer programs in the context of the topics presented. Both the organization of the book and the style of presentation allow for much flexibility in choice, sequence, and degree of sophistication with which topics are dealt.

This book, on Design and Analysis of Algorithms, in its second edition, presents a detailed coverage of the time complexity of algorithms. In this edition, a number of chapters have been modified and updated with new material. It discusses the various design factors that make one algorithm more efficient than others, and explains how to devise the new algorithms or modify the existing ones. The book begins with an introduction to algorithm analysis and then presents different methods and techniques—divide and conquer methods, the greedy method, search and traversal techniques, backtracking methods, branch and bound methods—used in the design of algorithms. Each algorithm that is written in this book is followed first by a detailed explanation and then is supported by worked-out examples. The book contains a number of figures to illustrate the theoretical aspects and also provides chapter-end questions to enable students to gauge their understanding of the underlying concepts. What distinguishes the text is its compactness, which has been achieved without sacrificing essential subject matter. This text is suitable for a course on “Design and Analysis of Algorithms”, which is offered to the students of B.Tech (Computer Science and Engineering) and undergraduate and postgraduate students of computer science and computer applications [BCA, MCA, B.Sc. (CS), M.Sc. (CS)] and other computer-related courses. New to this Edition : Explains in detail the time complexity of the algorithms for the problem of finding the GCD and matrix addition. Covers the analysis of Knapsack and Combinatorial Search and Optimization problems. Illustrates the “Branch-and-Bound” method with reference to the Knapsack problem. Presents the theory of NP-Completeness.

Students taking their first chemical engineering course plunge into the 'nuts and bolts' of mass and energy balances and often miss the broad view of what chemical engineers do. This 1998 text offers a well-paced introduction to chemical engineering. Students are first introduced to the fundamental steps in design and three methods of analysis: mathematical modeling, graphical methods, and dimensional analysis. The book then describes how to apply engineering skills, such as how to simplify calculations through assumptions and approximations; how to verify calculations, significant figures, spreadsheets, graphing (standard, semi-log and log-log); and how to use data maps. In addition, the book teaches engineering skills through the design and analysis of chemical processes and process units in order to assess product quality, economics, safety, and environmental impact. This text will help undergraduate students in chemical engineering develop engineering skills early in their studies. Lecturer's solution manual available from the publisher on request.
