Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The design of a control system should be based on the mathematical model of the controlled object but, strictly speaking, it is impossible to be completely accurate when modeling any controlled object, and there must be a degree of uncertainty. Such uncertainties include parameter uncertainty, structural uncertainty and various disturbances. These uncertainties may exist at the beginning of modeling, or may change continuously during system operation. Due to the existence of uncertainties, the designed feedback control system must be able to deal with these uncertainties, so that they will not have too great an influence on the dynamic performance of the system, which requires the control system to be robust. Therefore, robust control has become an important research topic in feedback control theory.

This Special Issue aims to encourage the development of analysis and design techniques for uncertain linear and nonlinear systems. Papers that demonstrate the potential for robust or nonlinear controllers in applications are welcome. We also welcome papers on non-optimal methods of improving the robustness of uncertain systems, such as QFT design methods.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Mathematics is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2100 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
