Control in physical and technical systems / Ed. by A.L. Fradkov (in Russian)
St.Petersburg: Nauka, 2004, - 272 p. (Series "Analysis and design of nonlinear systems").
Abstract: In the book the research results in the field of cybernetical physics - new area on the borderland between physics an control aimed at studying physical systems by cybernetical methods are presented. The results on oscillations and vibrations dynamics and control in nonlinear mechanical systems are described. New algorithms for control of molecular systems, crystalline lattices, phase transitions are presented. Possibilities of modeling nonequilibrium processes by methods of cybernetical physics are studied.

The book is intended for students, teachers, engineers or researchers interested in physics, mechanics, systems theory and control theory.
