We are witnessing the important developments of complex dynamic systems which include the areas of telecommunications, manufacturing, transportation or power networks, and the rapidly emerging research area seeking to understand and analyze biological systems using the tools of systems theory. In addition, countries' economies are increasingly dependent in the ongoing globalization of economic exchanges. This is in large part made possible by the massive development of information technologies, and the ubiquity of communication systems which permit the existence of global marketplaces.

ANALYSIS, CONTROL AND OPTIMIZATION OF COMPLEX DYNAMIC SYSTEMS gathers in a single volume a spectrum of complex dynamic systems related papers written by experts in their fields, and strongly representative of current research trends. Complex systems present important challenges, in great part due to their sheer size which makes it difficult to grasp their dynamic behavior, optimize their operations, or study their reliability. Yet, we live in a world where, due to increasing inter-dependencies and networking of systems, complexity has become the norm. With this in mind, the volume comprises two parts. The first part is dedicated to a spectrum of complex problems of decision and control encountered in the area of production and inventory systems. The second part is dedicated to large scale or multi-agent system problems occurring in other areas of engineering such as telecommunication and electric power networks, as well as more generic context.
