This unified quantity is a set of invited articles on themes provided on the Symposium on structures, keep watch over, and Networks, held in Berkeley June 5–7, 2005, in honor of Pravin Varaiya on his 65^{th} birthday. Varaiya is an eminent college member of the collage of California at Berkeley, widely recognized for his seminal contributions in parts as varied as stochastic structures, nonlinear and hybrid platforms, dispensed structures, verbal exchange networks, transportation platforms, energy networks, economics, optimization, and platforms education.

The chapters contain fresh effects and surveys via top specialists on subject matters that mirror some of the examine and educating pursuits of Varaiya, including:

* hybrid platforms and purposes

* verbal exchange, instant, and sensor networks

* transportation structures

* stochastic platforms

* structures schooling

*Advances on top of things, conversation Networks, and Transportation Systems* will function an outstanding source for training and learn engineers, utilized mathematicians, and graduate scholars operating in such components as verbal exchange networks, sensor networks, transportation platforms, regulate idea, hybrid structures, and purposes.

**Robust Synchronization of Chaotic Systems via Feedback **

This pages comprise the implications derived in the course of final ten years approximately either suppression and synchronization of chaotic -continuous time- structures. alongside this time, our thought was once to check how the intrinsic houses of dynamical platforms will be exploited to suppress and to synchronize the chaotic habit and what synchronization phen- ena are available below suggestions interconnection.

**C and the 8051: Hardware, Modular Programming & Multitasking**

At the present time, every thing from cellphones to microwaves to CD avid gamers all comprise microcontrollers, or miniature pcs, which have to be programmed to accomplish particular initiatives. Designing such structures calls for an figuring out of either microprocessor electronics and programming languages. This booklet is written for the economic electronics engineer who must use or change to the Intel 8051 relatives of microcontrollers and enforce it utilizing a c program languageperiod.

**Qualitative Theory of Hybrid Dynamical Systems**

Hybrid dynamical structures, either non-stop and discrete dynamics and variables, have attracted enormous curiosity lately. This rising zone is located on the interface of regulate idea and laptop engineering, concentrating on the analogue and electronic facets of structures and units. they're crucial for advances in glossy electronic- controller know-how.

**Artificial Neural Networks for Modelling and Control of Non-Linear Systems**

Synthetic neural networks own numerous houses that lead them to quite beautiful for purposes to modelling and regulate of complicated non-linear structures. between those homes are their common approximation skill, their parallel community constitution and the provision of on- and off-line studying equipment for the interconnection weights.

5), as well as the available measurements, the realization z = z ∗ (t), t ∈ [t0 , τ ]. 5). The information set W[τ ] is the guaranteed estimate of the realized vector w(τ ). The speciﬁcation of this set is the subject of the theory of guaranteed (minmax) estimation [16], [5],[18], [19], [3]. However, for the problems of this chapter it is necessary not only to calculate set W[τ ], but to arrange the calculations on-line, following the evolution of W[τ ] in time. Such procedures may be organized through the solution of the following problem of dynamic optimization.

It is also assumed that here the comaximizer α0 ≡ t, which means that α0 (t) has no jump at time τ . The maximizer λ0 (τ ) is assumed continuous and unique, allowing representation dΛ0 (τ )/dτ = λ0 (τ )dα0 (τ ) with Λ(τ ) being a function of bounded variation, of dimension m. The uniqueness of maximizer λ0 (τ ) may be ensured by assuming R(τ ) to be a nondegenerate ellipsoid (such an R is taken in the next section). Here we also used the property that either λ0 (τ )H(τ ) = l0 (τ ), or λ0 (τ ) = 0, (see [23], Section 17).

Assume that x∗ (0) ∈ X0 1 Applications of Polytopic Approximations of Reachable Sets 7 and u∗ (t) ∈ U for all t ≥ 0 such that x∗ (τ ) ∈ X (τ ) (0 ≤ t ≤ τ ). 6) where v + (x∗ , t) is a piecewise continuous function, and μ(t) is a positive-deﬁnite, integrable function. 1) at time τ as: τ V + (τ ) = {x|v + (x, τ ) ≤ μ(t)dt + max v + (x(0), 0)}. 7) Next, we review the polytopic overapproximation of reachable sets for linear dynamical systems and derive computational methods for polytopic overapproximate reachable sets for feedback linearizable nonlinear systems, linear dynamic games, and norm-bounded nonlinear systems.
