Although research on general multidimensional systems theory has been developing rapidly in recent years, this is the first research text to appear on the subject since the early 1980s.
The field is closely related to control, systems, circuits and signal/image processing. The text describes the current state of the art nD systems and sets out a number of open problems, and gives several different perspectives on the subject. It presents a number of different solutions to major theoretical problems as well as some interesting practical results.
The book comprises of a selection of plenary and other lectures given at The First International Workshop on Multidimensional (nD) Systems (NDS-98) held in 1998 in Poland, and is written by leading world specialists in the field.
