A well-balanced reflection of mainstream activities in this research field Modeling fuzzy control has been a very active research and application area in control engineering. However, there are few books available that cover the area in any depth. Written by a well-known expert who has published more than 100 papers in top international journals, this book gives insight into the latest approaches for the analysis and synthesis of fuzzy systems. It systematically presents design techniques applied to the Takagi--Sugeno class of fuzzy controllers widely used in successful practical applications. The book covers issues of robustness, stability, and conformity along with other state-of-the-art control techniques, such as model predictive control.
Gang (Gary) Feng is Associate Provost and Chair Professor of Mechatronic Engineering at the City University of Hong Kong. He is also the Cheung Kong Chair Professor at Nanjing University of Science and Technology conferred by the Education Ministry of China. Dr. Feng has done research work in adaptive control, robot control, intelligent control, and, more recently, control of piecewise linear systems and switched systems. His research work has led to the publication of one edited book, seven invited book chapters, and over 180 international journal papers and numerous international conference papers. He has received the IEEE Transactions on Fuzzy Systems Outstanding Paper Award (2007), an Alexander von Humboldt Research Fellowship of Germany (1997), and a number of best conference paper awards. He has been invited to give plenary/special lectures at a number of international conferences. Dr. Feng is an IEEE Fellow and an associate editor of IEEE Transactions on Automatic Control, IEEE Transactions on Fuzzy Systems, and Mechatronics. He has served as an associate editor of IEEE Transactions on Systems, Man, & Cybernetics, Part C, Control Theory and Applications, and on the Conference Editorial Board, IEEE Control Systems Society.
