New engineering book focuses on improving the performance of processes and

TORONTO, July 26 /CNW/ - A new book on improving the performance of advanced processes and systems has been released by two well known university and industry specialists, Jason Speyer and David Jacobson.

The book called Primer of Optimal Control Theory was written for applied mathematicians, engineers, technologists, scientists, biomedical researchers and economists to understand, appreciate, and implement optimal control. It's written to provide readers with a sound basis from which proceed to higher mathematical concepts and advanced systems formulations. "Every engineer's objective is to design the best product or system and to get the highest operating performance taking into account practical cost and engineering constraints. The contemporary design of electrical, mechanical, electronic, robotic and many other complex processes can be enhanced significantly using mathematical and computational techniques such as those covered in this new book," says Jacobson.

The book is published by the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics in Philadelphia. Jason Speyer is a Distinguished Professor in the Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Department at the University of California and David Jacobson is the Director of Emerging Technologies at PricewaterhouseCoopers in Canada. David is also an Honorary Professor at the University of the Witwatersrand.
