I was a betting man all my life, and for most of that time it wasn't a problem. However, one day I realized that my life was spiraling out of control. I was drowning under a mountain of debt, my wife was contemplating divorce; my gambling had become an addiction. This is the story of how a seemingly harmless pastime transformed into a monster and nearly destroyed my life. This book describes the progression of my problem, and the process I had to go through to reclaim my life from this insidious disease. Full of practical suggestions and testimonials, this is a must read for anyone who suffers from this addiction and is trying to get well.
Fractional-order Systems and Controls details the use of fractional calculus in the description and modeling of systems, and in a range of control design and practical applications. It is largely self-contained, covering the fundamentals of fractional calculus together with some analytical and numerical techniques and providing MATLAB(R) codes for the simulation of fractional-order control (FOC) systems. Many different FOC schemes are presented for control and dynamic systems problems. Practical material relating to a wide variety of applications is also provided. All the control schemes and applications are presented in the monograph with either system simulation results or real experimental results, or both. Fractional-order Systems and Controls provides readers with a basic understanding of FOC concepts and methods, so they can extend their use of FOC in other industrial system applications, thereby expanding their range of disciplines by exploiting this versatile new set of control techniques.
