Aims and scope

Objectifs de la revue

The Control journal publishes papers on various themes, from model identification and estimation to real time on chip implementation. The journal welcomes both theoretical work and applications.

The covered themes (non-exhaustive list) are: identification, estimation, control, observation; controllability, observability, stabilization, trajectory tracking, robustness; linear and nonlinear systems, finite and infinite dimensional, hybrid or not; continuous, discrete, sampled data, real time systems theory.

La revue Automatique publie des articles sur différents thèmes allant des aspects d’identification de modèles et d’estimation jusqu’à l’implantation temps réel sur cible. La revue accueille à la fois des travaux théoriques et des applications.

Les thèmes couverts sont (liste non-exhaustive) : identification, estimation, commande, observation ; commandabilité, observabilité, stabilisation, suivi de trajectoires, robustesse ; systèmes linéaires et non linéaires, de dimension finie et infinie, hybrides ou non ; théorie des systèmes continue, discrète, échantillonnée, temps réel.
