Motion Control

The book reveals many different aspects of motion control and a wide multiplicity of approaches  to the problem as well. Despite the number of examples, however, this volume is not meant to be exhaustive: it intends to offer some original insights for all researchers who will hopefully make their experience available for a forthcoming publication on the subject.
