Description:

The emergence of flow control as a field of research is owed to breakthroughs in MEMS technology, allowing instrumentation of flows on extremely short length and time scales. Dedicated to tools for control algorithm design, the book brings together control theoretic and fluid mechanics expertise in an exhaustive exposition of existing research results on stabilization and mixing of fluid flows. 

The contents structure is ideal for instruction on flow control as a module in fluid dynamics courses, nonlinear control courses, or courses on infinite dimensional systems. For this purpose, the book includes self contained introductory sections on Navier-Stokes equations, linear and nonlinear control, and MEMS actuators and sensors.
