This book presents recent advances in the application of Lyapunov's method for distributed parameter systems to the control of vibration and noise. The material is appropriate for graduate and advanced undergraduate students as well as academic and industrial researchers in engineering and mathematics. The book uses detailed examples to introduce modeling, control theory, and mechatronic implementation for distributed vibration and noise applications. Adaptive, output feedback controllers are shown to asymptotically stabilize distributed vibration and noise and to learn system parameters. Visual feedback control using high speed video and setpoint regulation for systems with rigid body modes are presented. The book provides readers with the tools to model distributed vibration and noise systems, design model-based controllers that guarantee stability and robustness, and implement the controllers with the appropriate sensing, actuation, and control hardware and software.Rahn, Christopher D. is the author of 'Mechatronic Control of Distributed Noise and Vibration Lyapunov Approach' with ISBN 9783540418597 and ISBN 3540418598.
