Overview

This book provides clear presentations of more than sixty important unsolved problems in mathematical systems and control theory. Each of the problems included here is proposed by a leading expert and set forth in an accessible manner. Covering a wide range of areas, the book will be an ideal reference for anyone interested in the latest developments in the field, including specialists in applied mathematics, engineering, and computer science.

The book consists of ten parts representing various problem areas, and each chapter sets forth a different problem presented by a researcher in the particular area and in the same way: description of the problem, motivation and history, available results, and bibliography. It aims not only to encourage work on the included problems but also to suggest new ones and generate fresh research. The reader will be able to submit solutions for possible inclusion on an online version of the book to be updated quarterly on the Princeton University Press website, and thus also be able to access solutions, updated information, and partial solutions as they are developed.

What People are saying about this

Kemin Zhou
This book covers a wide range of systems from linear to nonlinear, deterministic to stochastic, finite dimensional to infinite dimensional, and so on. It includes at least some set of problems that will interest any researcher in the field.
Kemin Zhou, Louisiana State University
Hager
This is an extremely important book that presents, in a clear way, many important and stimulating mathematical problems in systems and control. It will be an important reference for both researchers and people outside the field.
William W. Hager, University of Florida
