My new book Sparsity Methods for Systems and Control has been published!
This is an open access book, so you can download pdf from here for free!
Slides and lecture videos are also available at this page.
Definitely this book will be interesting to broad control, mathematics, and engineering communities.
The author should definitely try to expand the book to include sparse control problems in their full generality.
Aleksandar Haber, The City University of New York, USA.
The writing style is live and easy to follow. In particular, I like very much the examples, problems,
and Matlab simulations with actual code segments that are included in the first chapters.
The proposal is timely and the topic of sparsity in control is very broad. In addition,
to the systems and control community, I expect it will appeal to the machine learning community.
