About the Authors
  • In the context of this book, adaptation is taken to mean a feature of a system aimed at achieving the best possible performance, when mathematical models of the environment and the system itself are not fully available. This has applications ranging from theories of visual perception and the processing of information, to the more technical problems of friction compensation and adaptive classification of signals in fixed-weight recurrent neural networks. Largely devoted to the problems of adaptive regulation, tracking and identification, this book presents a unifying system-theoretic view on the problem of adaptation in dynamical systems. Special attention is given to systems with nonlinearly parameterized models of uncertainty. Concepts, methods and algorithms given in the text can be successfully employed in wider areas of science and technology. The detailed examples and background information make this book suitable for a wide range of researchers and graduates in cybernetics, mathematical modelling and neuroscience.

    • Readers can see the theory at work through examples of well-recognized problems in areas such as computational neuroscience and the mathematical modelling of neural systems
    • Contains all necessary background information and elementary proofs so readers can understand the main theoretical concepts
    • The concepts, methods and algorithms presented can be successfully employed in wider areas of science and technology
