This book is a self-contained compendium of easily implementable adaptive control algorithms that have been developed and applied by the authors for more than ten years. These algorithms do not require explicit process parameter identification and have been successfully applied to a wide variety of engineering problems including flexible structure control, blood pressure control, and robotics. In general, these algorithms are suitable for a wide class of multiple-input-multiple-output control systems containing significant uncertainty as well as disturbances.
