Recent Advances in Celestial and Space Mechanics (Hardcover, 1st ed. 2016): Bernard Bonnard, Monique Chyba Recent Advances in Celestial and Space Mechanics (Hardcover, 1st ed. 2016)
Bernard Bonnard, Monique Chyba
R2,315 R2,109 Discovery Miles 21 090 Save R206 (9%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

This book presents recent advances in space and celestial mechanics, with a focus on the N-body problem and astrodynamics, and explores the development and application of computational techniques in both areas. It highlights the design of space transfers with various modes of propulsion, like solar sailing and low-thrust transfers between libration point orbits, as well as a broad range of targets and applications, like rendezvous with near Earth objects. Additionally, it includes contributions on the non-integrability properties of the collinear three- and four-body problem, and on general conditions for the existence of stable, minimum energy configurations in the full N-body problem. A valuable resource for physicists and mathematicians with research interests in celestial mechanics, astrodynamics and optimal control as applied to space transfers, as well as for professionals and companies in the industry.

Optimal Control with Applications in Space and Quantum Dynamics (Paperback): Bernard Bonnard, Dominique Sugny Optimal Control with Applications in Space and Quantum Dynamics (Paperback)
Bernard Bonnard, Dominique Sugny
R1,246 R1,050 Discovery Miles 10 500 Save R196 (16%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Several complete textbooks of mathematics on geometric optimal control theory exist in the literature, but little has been done with relevant applications in control engineering. This monograph is intended to fill this gap. It is based on graduate courses for mathematicians and physicists and presents results from two research projects in space mechanics and quantum control. The main topics developed in this book are: * Geometric optimal control theory: Pontryagin Maximum Principle and second order necessary and sufficient optimality conditions * Extensions of Riemannian geometry in optimal control theory * Optimal control in space mechanics * Application to the orbital transfer between elliptic orbits in the two and three body problem * Optimal control of dissipative quantum systems * Application in Nuclear Magnetic Resonance and Magnetic Resonance Imaging. The presentation is self-contained and readers can use our techniques to perform similar analysis in their own problems. Numerical tools have been developed in parallel during the research projects (shooting and continuation methods) and the codes are freely available at http://apo.enseeiht.fr/hampath/contacts.html

Geometric and Numerical Optimal Control - Application to Swimming at Low Reynolds Number and Magnetic Resonance Imaging... Geometric and Numerical Optimal Control - Application to Swimming at Low Reynolds Number and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (Paperback, 1st ed. 2018)
Bernard Bonnard, Monique Chyba, Jeremy Rouot
R1,214 R987 Discovery Miles 9 870 Save R227 (19%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

This book introduces readers to techniques of geometric optimal control as well as the exposure and applicability of adapted numerical schemes. It is based on two real-world applications, which have been the subject of two current academic research programs and motivated by industrial use - the design of micro-swimmers and the contrast problem in medical resonance imaging. The recently developed numerical software has been applied to the cases studies presented here. The book is intended for use at the graduate and Ph.D. level to introduce students from applied mathematics and control engineering to geometric and computational techniques in optimal control.

Singular Trajectories and their Role in Control Theory (Paperback, 2003 ed.): Bernard Bonnard, Monique Chyba Singular Trajectories and their Role in Control Theory (Paperback, 2003 ed.)
Bernard Bonnard, Monique Chyba
R1,653 Discovery Miles 16 530 Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

The role of singular trajectories in control theory is analysed in this volume that contains about 60 exercises and problems. A section is devoted to the applications of singular trajectories to the optimisation of batch reactors. The theoretical part based on the Martinet case concerns the singularity analysis of singular trajectories in sub-Riemannian geometry. An algorithm is given to evaluate conjugate points and a final chapter discusses open problems. The volume will interest mathematicians and engineers.

The conference "Analysis of Controlled Dynamical Systems" was held in July 1990 at the University of LYON FRANCE. About hundred participants attended this conference which lasted four days : There were 50 speakers from departments of Engineering and Mathematics in east and west Europe, USA and USSR. The general subject of the conference was system theory. The main topics were optimal control, structure and control of nonlinear systems, stabilization and observers, differential algebra and systems theory, nonlinear aspects of Hoc theory, rigid and flexible mechanical systems, nonlinear analysis of signals. We are indebted to the scientific committee John BAILLIEUL, Michel FLIESS, Bronislaw JAKUBCZYCK, Hector SUSSMANN, Jan WILLEMS. We gratefully acknowledge the time and thought they gave to this task. We would also like to thank Chris BYRNES for arranging for the publication of these proceedings through the series "Progress in Systems and Control Theory"; BIRKHAUSER. Finally, we are very grateful to the following institutions who through their financial support contributed essentially to the success of this conference : CNRS, Special year " Systemes Dynamiques", DRET, MEN-DAGIC, GRECO-AUTOMATIQUE, Claude Bernard Lyon I University, Entreprise Rhone-Alpes International, Conseil General du RhOne, the cities of LYON and VILLEURBANNE.
