About the Author

Xin Xin received the B.S. degree in 1987 from the University of Science and Technology of China, China and Ph.D. degree in 1993 from the Southeast University, China. From 1991 to 1993, under the guidance of professor Hidenori Kimura, he did his Ph.D. studies in Osaka University as a co-advised student of China and Japan with the Japanese Government Scholarship. He also received the Doctor degree in engineering in 2000 from Tokyo Institute of Technology. From 1993 to 1995, he was a postdoctoral researcher and then became an associate professor in Southeast University. From 1996 to 1997, he was with the New Energy and Industrial Technology Development, Japan as an advanced industrial technology researcher. From 1997 to 2000, he was an assistant professor of Tokyo Institute of Technology. From 2000, he has been with Okayama Prefectural University as an associate professor, where he is now a professor since 2008. He has over 140 publications in journals, international conferences and book chapters. He received the division paper award of SICE Conference on Control Systems in 2004. His current research interests include robotics, dynamics and control of nonlinear and complex systems.

He has been concentrating on studying URSs for more than a decade. The corresponding research results have been published in 12 international journal papers including IEEE Trans. on Automatic Control, Automatica, IEEE Trans. on Robotics, IEEE Trans. on Control Technology, International Journal of Robust and Nonlinear Control and about 40 refereed conference papers mainly in IEEE Conference on Decision and Control and IFAC world congress.

Yannian Liu received the B.S. degree in electrical engineering from Sichuan University, Chengdu, China in 1988 and the M. S. and Ph.D. from Southeast University, Nanjing, China in 1991 and 1994, respectively. From 1994-1995 she was a postdoctoral researcher in Nanjing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics. From 1996 she was an associate professor in the Control Department of Southeast University. From 1997 to 1999, she was a visiting scholar in the Department of Control and Systems Engineering of Tokyo Institute of Technology. From 2007 to 2010, she was working in the Solution Division of MoMo Alliance Co., Ltd. Okayama, Japan. Her current research interests include robot control and neural network. She has about 20 publications in journals and international conferences and has two Japanese patents.
