Max-algebra also provides the linear-algebraic background to the rapidly developing field of tropical mathematics. In particular, the concepts of equilibrium and optimality are of immense practical importance affecting decision-making problems regarding policy and strategies, and in understanding and predicting systems in different application domains, ranging from economics and engineering to military applications. No prior knowledge of max-algebra is assumed. . It presents the development of a major bank of results on the structure and design of control laws, including the case when there is uncertainty in the process model description, together with numerically reliable computational algorithms.
This result revealed a link between two seemingly unrelated questions long before it was studied in other research centres worldwide and gave rise to a number of findings. The c- plexity is getting more critical along with the growing applications. This method reduces the set of candidates for eigenvalues; in some cases it identifies the whole spectrum. It has been proved that max-algebra can be used to efficiently describe all solutions to a class of combinatorial problems. These results provide an efficient characterisation of matrices whose orbit will reach an eigenspace with any starting vector.
In addition to providing the linear-algebraic background in the field of tropical mathematics, max-algebra provides mathematical theory and techniques for solving various nonlinear problems arising in areas such as manufacturing, transportation, allocation of resources and information processing technology. Among the main features of the book is the presentation of the fundamental max-algebraic theory Chapters 1-4 , often scattered in research articles, reports and theses, in one place in a comprehensive and unified form.

Butkovic: , Discrete Applied Mathematics 239 2018 62-74. The courses dealt mostly with the following subjects: first order and second order Hamilton-Jacobi-Bellman equations, properties of viscosity solutions, asymptotic behaviors, mean field games, approximation and numerical methods, idempotent analysis.
This book aims to provide a first detailed and self-contained account of linear-algebraic aspects of max-algebra for general that is both irreducible and reducible matrices. This book aims to provide a first detailed and self-contained account of linear-algebraic aspects of max-algebra for general that is both irreducible and reducible matrices. We believe that they opened perspectives on new and delicate issues. To cope with the growing and computing complexity, information computing and applications focus on intelligent, selfmanageable, scalable computing systems and applications to the maximum extent possible without human intervention or guidance. He published a monograph on max-linear systems and more than 60 papers. The book is intended for a wide-ranging readership, from undergraduate and postgraduate students to researchers and mathematicians working in industry, commerce or management.
Specialised international conferences and seminars or special sessions devoted to max-algebra have been organised. Among the main features of the book is the presentation of the fundamental max-algebraic theory Chapters 1-4 , often scattered in research articles, reports and theses, in one place in a comprehensive and unified form. The content of the courses ranged from an introduction to viscosity solutions to quite advanced topics, at the cutting edge of research in the field. This presentation is made with all proofs and in full generality that is for both irreducible and reducible matrices. Tam: Two cores of a nonnegative matrix, Linear Algebra and its Applications 439 2013 1929—1954. A number of practical and theoretical applications and a list of open problems are included.
He joined the research group led by Professor R. Professor Butkovic's main research interest is the theory of max-linear systems, rapidly evolving area of numerical linear algebra and applied discrete mathematics. The theory is illustrated by figures and numerical examples and complemented by exercises at the end of every chapter. Chapters 6-10 cover more advanced topics with emphasis on feasibility and reachability. Cuninghame-Green Pseudopolynomial alternating method for solving two-sided max-linear systems.
This presentation is made with all proofs and in full generality that is for both irreducible and reducible matrices. MacCaig: On integer eigenvectors and subeigenvectors in the max-plus algebra, Linear Algebra and its Applications 438 2013 3408—3424. He gave lectures at more than 70 international conferences and seminars. Along with revisions and updates throughout, the second edition of this bestseller includes 20 new chapters. This book provides an introductory text to max-algebra and presents results on advanced topics.
The papers deal with the theory of relation algebras and Kleene algebras, process algebras; fixed point calculi; idempotent semirings; quantales, allegories, and dynamic algebras; cylindric algebras, and about their application in areas such as verification, analysis and development of programs and algorithms, algebraic approaches to logics of programs, modal and dynamic logics, interval and temporal logics. It was discovered well before other researchers attempted to solve the problem. During his appointment in Birmingham he introduced new courses in the School of Mathematics such as Game Theory, Research Frontiers in Management Mathematics and History of Optimisation. Providing the fundamentals of max-algebraic theory in a comprehensive and unified form, in addition to more advanced material with an emphasis on feasibility and reachability, this book presents a number of new research results. The book consists of 29 survey chapters written by distinguished researchers in the above areas. Intended for a wide-ranging readership, this book will be useful for anyone with basic mathematical knowledge including undergraduate students who wish to learn fundamental max-algebraic ideas and techniques. Finally, the application of some of these results in the area of iterative learning control is treated --- including experimental results from a chain conveyor system and a gantry robot system.
