TY - CHAP A1 - Eduardo Rohr Damián Marelli A2 - A3 - Minyue Fu ED1 - Mario Alberto Jordán Y1 - 2011-04-26 PY - 2011 T1 - On the Error Covariance Distribution for Kalman Filters with Packet Dropouts N2 - Discrete-Time Systems comprehend an important and broad research field. The consolidation of digital-based computational means in the present, pushes a technological tool into the field with a tremendous impact in areas like Control, Signal Processing, Communications, System Modelling and related Applications. This book attempts to give a scope in the wide area of Discrete-Time Systems. Their contents are grouped conveniently in sections according to significant areas, namely Filtering, Fixed and Adaptive Control Systems, Stability Problems and Miscellaneous Applications. We think that the contribution of the book enlarges the field of the Discrete-Time Systems with signification in the present state-of-the-art. Despite the vertiginous advance in the field, we also believe that the topics described here allow us also to look through some main tendencies in the next years in the research area.
