Cyber-physical systems (CPSs) combine cyber capabilities, such as computation or communication, with physical capabilities, such as motion or other physical processes. Cars, aircraft, and robots are prime examples, because they move physically in space in a way that is determined by discrete computerized control algorithms. Designing these algorithms is challenging due to their tight coupling with physical behavior, while it is vital that these algorithms be correct because we rely on them for safety-critical tasks.

This textbook teaches undergraduate students the core principles behind CPSs. It shows them how to develop models and controls; identify safety specifications and critical properties; reason rigorously about CPS models; leverage multi-dynamical systems compositionality to tame CPS complexity; identify required control constraints; verify CPS models of appropriate scale in logic; and develop an intuition for operational effects.

The book is supported with homework exercises, lecture videos, and slides.

About the Author

André Platzer is an Associate Professor in the Computer Science Department at Carnegie Mellon University. He develops the logical foundations of cyberphysical systems to characterize their fundamental principles and to determine how we can trust computers to control physical processes. He has a Ph.D. from the University of Oldenburg, Germany. He received an ACM Doctoral Dissertation Honorable Mention and NSF Career Award, and he was named one of the Brilliant 10 Young Scientists by the Popular Science magazine and one of AI's 10 to Watch by the IEEE Intelligent Systems Magazine.

What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

“This excellent textbook marries design and analysis of cyber-physical systems with a logical and computational way of thinking. The presentation is exemplary for finding the right balance between rigorous mathematical formalization and illustrative case studies rooted in practical problems in system design.” (Rajeev Alur, Zisman Family Professor of Computer and Information Science, University of Pennsylvania)

“[The author] has developed major important tools for the design and control of those cyber-physical sys¬tems that increasingly shape our lives. This book is a ‘must’ for computer scientists, engineers, and mathe¬maticians designing cyber-physical systems." (Anil Nerode, Goldwin Smith Professor of Mathematics, Cornell University)

“This book provides a wonderful introduction to cyber-physical systems, covering fundamental concepts from computer science and control theory from the perspective of formal logic. The theory is brought to life through many didactic examples, illustrations, and exercises. A wealth of background material is provided in the text and in an appendix for each chapter, which makes the book self-contained and accessible to univer¬sity students of all levels." (Goran Frehse, Université Grenoble Alpes)
