Overview

The world of artificial systems is reaching hitherto undreamed-of leve ls of complexity. Surface traffic, electricity distribution, mobile co mmunications, etc., demonstrate that problems are arising that are bey ond classical scientific or engineering knowledge. In order that our a bility to control such systems should not be hindered by lack of compr ehension, there is an on-going effort to understand them. This book is an example of the types of approach that European researchers are usi ng to tackle problems derived from systems' complexity. It has grown o ut of activities in the Control of Complex Systems (COSY) research pro gram the goals of which are to promote multi-disciplinary activity lea ding to a deeper understanding and further development of control tech nologies for complex systems and if possible, to develop the theory un derlying such systems.
