About this book
Written by one of the world’s leading groups in the area of Bayesian
identification, control, and decision making, this book provides the theoretical
and algorithmic basis of optimized probabilistic advising.
Starting from abstract ideas and formulations, and culminating in detailed
algorithms, the book comprises a unified treatment of an important problem
of the design of advisory systems supporting supervisors of complex processes.
It introduces the theoretical and algorithmic basis of developed advising,
relying on novel and powerful combination black-box modeling by dynamic
mixture models and fully probabilistic dynamic optimization.
Written for a broad audience, including developers of algorithms and
application engineers, researchers, lecturers, and postgraduates, this
book can be used as a reference tool, and an advanced text on Bayesian
dynamic decision making. A CD contains a specialized Matlab-based Mixtools
toolbox, and examples illustrating the most important and complex areas
of the material presented.
