Geared to the usersa needs, this work provides comprehensive coverage of the main techniques and methods necessary to construct a self--tuning and self--adaptive system. Eliminating a lot of theoretical rigor, it provides the reader with a fundamental understanding of basic algorithms and techniques useful in self--tuning control and signal processing. Every aspect of adaptive engineering is thoroughly covered including extensive descriptions of applications, commercial instruments and current research. Besides offering sections on advanced and detailed topics, the book provides a wide selection of tutorial problems that will aid and stimulate the reader.
