Advanced Stochastic Control Systems with Engineering Applications

Call for Papers

Stochastic phenomenon has played an important role in various branches of science such as biology, economics, and aircraft. Stochastic modeling approach has achieved a great number of distinguished contributions for a wide spectrum of systems including Markovian jumping systems, Itô stochastic systems, networked control systems with random communication delays, and\or packet losses. Over the past few decades, considerable attention has been paid to modeling, stability analysis, stabilization, robust filtering, model reduction, and practical applications of stochastic dynamical systems. In spite of the extensive and systemic development of stochastic approaches and techniques, there still remain various types of open problems desired to be further strengthened, which include modeling, filtering, nonparametric methods, system realization, and identification. Meanwhile, novel and updated developed theories and results are required to be investigated for application of stochastic systems in practical engineering.

The overall objective of this special issue is to bring together the latest results and advances in investigation of complicated stochastic systems including artificial intelligence, statistics, neural networks, multiagents, and heuristic search methods. The solicited papers in this special issue should be focused on modeling, analysis, control, and filtering problems of stochastic systems with application in modern industrial process, such as networked control systems, intelligent manufacturing systems, and biological systems. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Stochastic switching systems
  • Markovian jumping systems
  • Itô stochastic systems
  • Stochastic fuzzy control and filtering
  • Stochastic neural networks
  • Networked control systems
  • Stochastic signal processing
  • Design, construction, and control of gene regulatory circuits
