A self-contained introduction to adaptive inverse control Now featuring a revised preface that emphasizes the coverage of both control systems and signal processing, this reissued edition of Adaptive Inverse Control takes a novel approach that is not available in any other book. Written by two pioneers in the field, Adaptive Inverse Control presents methods of adaptive signal processing that are borrowed from the field of digital signal processing to solve problems in dynamic systems control. This unique approach allows engineers in both fields to share tools and techniques. Clearly and intuitively written, Adaptive Inverse Control illuminates theory with an emphasis on practical applications and commonsense understanding. It covers: the adaptive inverse control concept; Weiner filters; adaptive LMS filters; adaptive modeling; inverse plant modeling; adaptive inverse control; other configurations for adaptive inverse control; plant disturbance canceling; system integration; Multiple-Input Multiple-Output (MIMO) adaptive inverse control systems; nonlinear adaptive inverse control systems; and more.
Complete with a glossary, an index, and chapter summaries that consolidate the information presented, Adaptive Inverse Control is appropriate as a textbook for advanced undergraduate- and graduate-level courses on adaptive control and also serves as a valuable resource for practitioners in the fields of control systems and signal processing.
Bernard Widrow, PhD, has been Professor of Electrical Engineering at Stanford University for forty years. Together with M.E. Hoff, Jr., Dr. Widrow invented the LMS algorithm, which is now the world's most widely used learning algorithm. He is the recipient of numerous industry awards and holds twenty U.S. or foreign patents. Dr. Widrow has published nearly 200 papers, two of which became Citation Classics. Eugene Walach, PhD, is Director and Senior Researcher of R&D Management at IBM Haifa (Israel) Research Labs. His research areas include industrial vision-based applications, low-level image analysis, and signal processing. He and Dr. Widrow developed their system of adaptive inverse control.
