Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt/synopsis : Providing an introduction to stochastic optimal control in infinite dimension, this book gives a complete account of the theory of second-order HJB equations in infinite-dimensional Hilbert spaces, focusing on its applicability to associated stochastic optimal control problems. It features a general introduction to optimal stochastic control, including basic results (e.g. the dynamic programming principle) with proofs, and provides examples of applications. A complete and up-to-date exposition of the existing theory of viscosity solutions and regular solutions of second-order HJB equations in Hilbert spaces is given, together with an extensive survey of other methods, with a full bibliography. In particular, Chapter 6, written by M. Fuhrman and G. Tessitore, surveys the theory of regular solutions of HJB equations arising in infinite-dimensional stochastic control, via BSDEs. The book is of interest to both pure and applied researchers working in the control theory of stochastic PDEs, and in PDEs in infinite dimension. Readers from other fields who want to learn the basic theory will also find it useful. The prerequisites are: standard functional analysis, the theory of semigroups of operators and its use in the study of PDEs, some knowledge of the dynamic programming approach to stochastic optimal control problems in finite dimension, and the basics of stochastic analysis and stochastic equations in infinite-dimensional spaces.

Download PDF or read online Hamilton–Jacobi Equations: Theory and Applications Book by Hung V. Tran and published by American Mathematical Soc.. This book was released on 2021-08-16 with total page 322 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt/synopsis : This book gives an extensive survey of many important topics in the theory of Hamilton–Jacobi equations with particular emphasis on modern approaches and viewpoints. Firstly, the basic well-posedness theory of viscosity solutions for first-order Hamilton–Jacobi equations is covered. Then, the homogenization theory, a very active research topic since the late 1980s but not covered in any standard textbook, is discussed in depth. Afterwards, dynamical properties of solutions, the Aubry–Mather theory, and weak Kolmogorov–Arnold–Moser (KAM) theory are studied. Both dynamical and PDE approaches are introduced to investigate these theories. Connections between homogenization, dynamical aspects, and the optimal rate of convergence in homogenization theory are given as well. The book is self-contained and is useful for a course or for references. It can also serve as a gentle introductory reference to the homogenization theory.

Download PDF or read online Trends in Control Theory and Partial Differential Equations Book by Fatiha Alabau-Boussouira and published by Springer. This book was released on 2019-07-04 with total page 276 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt/synopsis : This book presents cutting-edge contributions in the areas of control theory and partial differential equations. Over the decades, control theory has had deep and fruitful interactions with the theory of partial differential equations (PDEs). Well-known examples are the study of the generalized solutions of Hamilton-Jacobi-Bellman equations arising in deterministic and stochastic optimal control and the development of modern analytical tools to study the controllability of infinite dimensional systems governed by PDEs. In the present volume, leading experts provide an up-to-date overview of the connections between these two vast fields of mathematics. Topics addressed include regularity of the value function associated to finite dimensional control systems, controllability and observability for PDEs, and asymptotic analysis of multiagent systems. The book will be of interest for both researchers and graduate students working in these areas.
Download PDF or read online Dynamical and Geometric Aspects of Hamilton-Jacobi and Linearized Monge-Ampère Equations Book by Hiroyoshi Mitake and published by Springer. This book was released on 2017-06-14 with total page 228 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt/synopsis : Consisting of two parts, the first part of this volume is an essentially self-contained exposition of the geometric aspects of local and global regularity theory for the Monge–Ampère and linearized Monge–Ampère equations. As an application, we solve the second boundary value problem of the prescribed affine mean curvature equation, which can be viewed as a coupling of the latter two equations. Of interest in its own right, the linearized Monge–Ampère equation also has deep connections and applications in analysis, fluid mechanics and geometry, including the semi-geostrophic equations in atmospheric flows, the affine maximal surface equation in affine geometry and the problem of finding Kahler metrics of constant scalar curvature in complex geometry. Among other topics, the second part provides a thorough exposition of the large time behavior and discounted approximation of Hamilton–Jacobi equations, which have received much attention in the last two decades, and a new approach to the subject, the nonlinear adjoint method, is introduced. The appendix offers a short introduction to the theory of viscosity solutions of first-order Hamilton–Jacobi equations.
Download PDF or read online Analysis and Geometry in Control Theory and its Applications Book by Piernicola Bettiol and published by Springer. This book was released on 2015-09-01 with total page 235 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt/synopsis : Since the 1950s control theory has established itself as a major mathematical discipline, particularly suitable for application in a number of research fields, including advanced engineering design, economics and the medical sciences. However, since its emergence, there has been a need to rethink and extend fields such as calculus of variations, differential geometry and nonsmooth analysis, which are closely tied to research on applications. Today control theory is a rich source of basic abstract problems arising from applications, and provides an important frame of reference for investigating purely mathematical issues. In many fields of mathematics, the huge and growing scope of activity has been accompanied by fragmentation into a multitude of narrow specialties. However, outstanding advances are often the result of the quest for unifying themes and a synthesis of different approaches. Control theory and its applications are no exception. Here, the interaction between analysis and geometry has played a crucial role in the evolution of the field. This book collects some recent results, highlighting geometrical and analytical aspects and the possible connections between them. Applications provide the background, in the classical spirit of mutual interplay between abstract theory and problem-solving practice.

Download PDF or read online Max-Plus Methods for Nonlinear Control and Estimation Book by William M. McEneaney and published by Springer Science & Business Media. This book was released on 2006 with total page 241 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt/synopsis : The central focus of this book is the control of continuous-time/continuous-space nonlinear systems. Using new techniques that employ the max-plus algebra, the author addresses several classes of nonlinear control problems, including nonlinear optimal control problems and nonlinear robust/H-infinity control and estimation problems. Several numerical techniques are employed, including a max-plus eigenvector approach and an approach that avoids the curse-of-dimensionality. The max-plus-based methods examined in this work belong to an entirely new class of numerical methods for the solution of nonlinear control problems and their associated Hamilton–Jacobi–Bellman (HJB) PDEs; these methods are not equivalent to either of the more commonly used finite element or characteristic approaches. Max-Plus Methods for Nonlinear Control and Estimation will be of interest to applied mathematicians, engineers, and graduate students interested in the control of nonlinear systems through the implementation of recently developed numerical methods.

Download PDF or read online Dynamics, Bifurcations and Control Book by Fritz Colonius and published by Springer. This book was released on 2003-07-01 with total page 304 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt/synopsis : This volume originates from the Third Nonlinear Control Workshop "- namics, Bifurcations and Control", held in Kloster Irsee, April 1-3 2001. As the preceding workshops held in Paris (2000) and in Ghent (1999), it was organized within the framework of Nonlinear Control Network funded by the European Union (http://www.supelec.fr/lss/NCN). The papers in this volume center around those control problems where phenomena and methods from dynamical systems theory play a dominant role. Despite the large variety of techniques and methods present in the c- tributions, a rough subdivision can be given into three areas: Bifurcation problems, stabilization and robustness, and global dynamics of control s- tems. A large part of the fascination in nonlinear control stems from the fact that is deeply rooted in engineering and mathematics alike. The contributions to this volume reflect this double nature of nonlinear control. We would like to take this opportunity to thank all the contributors and the referees for their careful work. Furthermore, it is our pleasure to thank Franchise Lamnabhi-Lagarrigue, the coordinator of our network, for her s- port in organizing the workshop and the proceedings and for the tremendous efforts she puts into this network bringing the cooperation between the d- ferent groups to a new level. In particular, the exchange and the active p- ticipation of young scientists, also reflected in the Pedagogical Schools within the Network, is an asset for the field of nonlinear control.
