JOURNAL OF ROBUST AND NONLINEAR CONTROL
The intention of the International Journal of Robust and
Nonlinear Control is to encourage the development of analysis and design
techniques for uncertain systems. The Journal will provide a natural forum for
papers on the theory and application of robust control system design, including
contributions on the H
and loop transfer recovery design philosophies. Papers will also be welcome on
methods of improving the robustness of well-established design procedures such
as the Inverse Nyquist Array, Sequential Return Difference, Characteristic Loci
and Linear Quadratic Gaussian methods.
The wider issues of modelling and identifying uncertain systems will also be
addressed, and analysis procedures such as the Structured Singular Value will be
of interest. Papers on applications will be particularly encouraged. Control
techniques based on Heuristic or rule based design methods for uncertain systems
will be considered, together with procedures based on fuzzy set theory.
Contributions on the design of controllers for nonlinear systems will be
included, particularly where these involve robust design issues. The main thrust
of the Journal is on the control of uncertain systems but it is recognized that
nonlinearities cause robust design problems of a similar nature.
