# Mastering Frequency Domain Techniques for the Stability Analysis of LTI Time Delay Systems

In many dynamical systems, time delays arise because of the time it takes to measure system states, perceive and evaluate events, formulate decisions, and act on those decisions. The presence of delays may lead to undesirable outcomes; without an engineered design, the dynamics may underperform, oscillate, and even become unstable. How to study the stability of dynamical systems influenced by time delays is a fundamental question. Related issues include how much time delay the system can withstand without becoming unstable and how to change system parameters to render improved dynamic characteristics, utilize or tune the delay itself to improve dynamical behavior, and assess the stability and speed of response of the dynamics. Mastering Frequency Domain Techniques for the Stability Analysis of LTI Time Delay Systems addresses these questions for linear time-invariant (LTI) systems with an eigenvalue-based approach built upon frequency domain techniques. Readers will find key results from the literature, including all subtopics for those interested in deeper exploration. The book presents step-by-step demonstrations of all implementations?including those that require special care in mathematics and numerical implementation?from the simpler, more intuitive ones in the introductory chapters to the more complex ones found in the later chapters. Maple and MATLAB code is available from the author?s website. This multipurpose book is intended for graduate students, instructors, and researchers working in control engineering, robotics, mechatronics, network control systems, human-in-the-loop systems, human-machine systems, remote control and tele-operation, transportation systems, energy systems, and process control, as well as for those working in applied mathematics, systems biology, and physics. It can be used as a primary text in courses on stability and control of time delay systems and as a supplementary text in courses in the above listed domains.

# Interpolatory Methods for Model Reduction

Dynamical systems are a principal tool in the modeling, prediction, and control of a wide range of complex phenomena. As the need for improved accuracy leads to larger and more complex dynamical systems, direct simulation often becomes the only available strategy for accurate prediction or control, inevitably creating a considerable burden on computational resources. This is the main context where one considers model reduction, seeking to replace large systems of coupled differential and algebraic equations that constitute high fidelity system models with substantially fewer equations that are crafted to control the loss of fidelity that order reduction may induce in the system response. Interpolatory methods are among the most widely used model reduction techniques, and Interpolatory Methods for Model Reduction is the first comprehensive analysis of this approach available in a single, extensive resource. It introduces state-of-the-art methods reflecting significant developments over the past two decades, covering both classical projection frameworks for model reduction and data-driven, nonintrusive frameworks. This textbook is appropriate for a wide audience of engineers and other scientists working in the general areas of large-scale dynamical systems and data-driven modeling of dynamics.

# An Introduction to Compressed Sensing

Compressed sensing is a relatively recent area of research that refers to the recovery of high-dimensional but low-complexity objects from a limited number of measurements. The topic has applications to signal/image processing and computer algorithms, and it draws from a variety of mathematical techniques such as graph theory, probability theory, linear algebra, and optimization. The author presents significant concepts never before discussed as well as new advances in the theory, providing an in-depth initiation to the field of compressed sensing. An Introduction to Compressed Sensing contains substantial material on graph theory and the design of binary measurement matrices, which is missing in recent texts despite being poised to play a key role in the future of compressed sensing theory. It also covers several new developments in the field and is the only book to thoroughly study the problem of matrix recovery. The book supplies relevant results alongside their proofs in a compact and streamlined presentation that is easy to navigate. The core audience for this book is engineers, computer scientists, and statisticians who are interested in compressed sensing. Professionals working in image processing, speech processing, or seismic signal processing will also find the book of interest.
