Model Predictive Control: Theory, Computation, and Design, 2nd Edition Contributed by: James B. Rawlings, [log in to unmask] The second edition is now available from Amazon. www.amazon.com/dp/0975937731 What's new? A new coauthor, Professor Moritz M. Diehl, and chapter, Chapter 8, ``Numerical Optimal Control,'' which provides a comprehensive treatment of methods for the numerical solution of the MPC optimization problem. A software release. The software enables the solution of all of the examples and exercises in the text requiring numerical calculation. The software is based on the freely available CasADi language, and a high-level set of Octave/Matlab functions, MPCTools, to serve as an interface to CasADi. The software can be downloaded from www.che.wisc.edu/~jbraw/mpc New topics. Stochastic MPC, discrete actuators, economic MPC, distributed MPC of nonlinear systems, software for computing explicit MPC, new state estimation results for bounded disturbances.
