Robust control has been a topic of active research in the last three decades culminating in H_2/H_\infty and \mu design methods followed by research on parametric robustness, initially motivated by Kharitonov's theorem, the extension to non-linear time delay systems, and other more recent methods. The two volumes of Recent Advances in Robust Control give a selective overview of recent theoretical developments and present selected application examples. The volumes comprise 39 contributions covering various theoretical aspects as well as different application areas. The first volume covers selected problems in the theory of robust control and its application to robotic and electromechanical systems. The second volume is dedicated to special topics in robust control and problem specific solutions. Recent Advances in Robust Control will be a valuable reference for those interested in the recent theoretical advances and for researchers working in the broad field of robotics and mechatronics.

Dr. Andreas Müller

Dr. Mueller received his Diploma degree in mathematics from the University of Applied Sciences, Mittweida, Germany, in 1997, a Diploma degree in electrical engineering from the University of Northumbria, Newcastle, U.K., in 1998, and a Diploma and Ph.D. degrees in mechanical engineering from the Technical University Chemnitz, Chemnitz, Germany, in 2001 and 2004, respectively. From 1989 to 1993, he did professional work as an electronic technician. From 1998 to 2008, he was a research assistant with the Institute of Mechatronics, Chemnitz. Since 2008, he has been Lecturer with the Chair of Mechanics and Robotics, University Duisburg-Essen, Germany. His research interests include dynamics and control of non-linear systems, mechanisms, robotics, parallel mechanisms, singularities, differential geometric methods, advanced simulation methods, biomechanics, microelectromechanical systems, and chaotic systems.
