Nob Hill Publishing is pleased to announce the availability of
the textbook "Model Predictive Control: Theory and Design," by
James B. Rawlings, University of Wisconsin-Madison, and David
Q. Mayne, Imperial College, London.  This text provides a
comprehensive and foundational treatment of the theory and design
of model predictive control. It enables researchers to learn
and teach the fundamentals of MPC without continually searching
the diverse control research literature for omitted arguments and
requisite background material. More than 200 end-of-chapter
exercises support the teaching and learning of MPC.

A solution manual for end-of-chapter exercises is available to
course instructors who adopt the text.

Appendices A-C are available on the web.

Sample homeworks and exams for a one-semester graduate course
are available at:
