Note:Generally, spontaneous pattern formation phenomena are random and repetitive, whereas elaborate devices are the deterministic product of human design. Yet, biological organisms and collective insect constructions are exceptionalexamples of complex sy stems that are both self-organized and architectural. This book is the first initiative of its kind toward establishing a new field of research, Morphogenetic Engineering, to explore the modeling andimplementation of self-architecturing systems. Particul ar emphasis is placed on the programmability and computational abilities of self-organization, properties that are often underappreciated in complex systems sciencewhile,conversely, the benefits of self-organization are often underappreciated in engineeri ng methodologies. Altogether, the aim of this work is to provide a framework for and examples of a larger class of self-architecturingsystems, while addressing fundamental questions such as > How do biological organisms carry out morphogenetic tasks so reliably? > Can we extrapolate their self-formation capabilities to engineered systems? > Can physical systems beendowed with information (or informational systems be embedded in physics) so as to create autonomous morphologies and functions? > What are t he core principles and best practices for the design and engineering of such morphogeneticsystems? The intended audience consists of researchers and graduate students who are working on, starting to work on, or interested in programmable self-organizing s ystems in a wide range of scientific fields, including computerscience, robotics, bioengineering, control engineering, physics, theoretical biology, mathematics, and many others

Note:This volume is an outgrowth of the workshop Applications of Advanced Control Theory to Robotics and Automation, organized in honor of the 70th birthdays of Petar V. Kokotovic and Salvatore (Turi) Nicosia. Both Petar and Turihave carried out distingui shed work in the control community and have long been recognized as mentors, experts, and pioneers in the field of automatic control, covering many topics in control theory and several different applications.The variety of their research is reflected in t his book, which includes contributions from leading experts in the field ranging from mathematics to laboratory experiments. Main topics covered include: * State Estimation andIdentification: observer designs for nonlinear systems and linear time-delay sy stems, as well as identification techniques for linear, nonlinear, piecewise linear, and hybrid systems. * Control and System Theory: theoretical resultsrelated to the analysis and control of dynamical systems, including a presentation of Lyapunov tools f or linear differential inclusions, a study of the control of constrained systems, and a treatment of finite-time stability concepts.* Robotics: new studies of robot manipulators, parameter identification, and different control problems for mobile robots. * Control of Electromechanical Systems: applications of modern control techniques to port-controlled Hamiltoniansystems, different classes of vehicles, and web processing systems. * Manufacturing Systems: applications of the max-plus algebra to system agg regation, optimal machine scheduling problems, and inventory control with cooperationbetween retailers. * Networked Control Systems: analysis and design problems related to linear and nonlinear networked control systems. The scope of the work is quite bro ad, and although each chapter is self-contained, the book hasbeen organized into thematically related chapters, and in some cases, convenient reading sequences are suggested to the reader.
