This volume is based on a seminar concerned with advanced methods in adaptive control for industrial applications which was held in Prague in May 1990 and which brought together experts in the UK and Czechoslovakia in order to suggest solutions to specific current and anticipated problems faced by industry. A number of contributions were also aimed at reflecting possible trends in the more distant future, by looking in depth at more specific issues. While the papers included in the volume are of a research or application nature, two or three can also be utilized in a tutorial mode. The aspects of adaptive control considered are viewed from the point of view of real time implementation and system resilience. The book is intended for the use of academics in the above fields and to industrialists.
