This introductory chapter intends to present the required notions, definitions, and background in order to aid understanding the problem of fault diagnosis of hybrid dynamic and complex systems. It starts by defining the hybrid dynamic systems and presenting its main classes and modeling tools. Then, it presents the problem of diagnosis of faults in hybrid dynamic systems, its challenges, and a general classification of its main approaches. Finally, this chapter ends by a compact summary of the contents of the book by providing a paragraph about each of the single contribution (method used, faults diagnosed, class of hybrid dynamic systems adopted, modeling tool used, and applications targeted).
