摘要:
It is our great pleasure to put up this special issue in Control Theory and Technology in honor of the 70th birthday of Professor Frank L. Lewis, who has made many truly outstanding contributions to the field of systems and control through the years, which includes applied optimal control, geometric systems theory and nonlinear control in his earlier research period, and his recent focus on cooperative multi-agent distributed systems, reinforcement learning in control, wireless sensor networks for area security monitoring and condition-based maintenance, robotic system control, and manufacturing process control and scheduling to name a few. Featured in this special issue are 10 manuscripts on control theory and technologies, of which many are from the personal and academic friends of Professor Frank Lewis. Dr. Lewis obtained his Bachelor's degree in Physics and Electrical Engineering and Master's degree in Electrical Engineering at Rice University in 1971. He then spent six years in the U.S. Navy, serving as Navigator and Executive Officer and Acting Commanding Officer. In 1977, he received the Master of Science in Aeronautical Engineering from the University of West Florida. In 1981, he obtained his Ph.D. at Georgia Institute of Technology, where he was employed as a professor from 1981 to 1990. He is currently a professor of Electrical Engineering at the University of Texas at Arlington (UTA), where he was awarded the Moncrief-O'Donnell Endowed Chair in 1990 at the Automation & Robotics Research Institute (ARRI). Dr. Lewis is the author of numerous U.S. patents, journal articles and books. He served/serves on many editorial boards. He received Fulbright Research Award 1988, American Society of Engineering Education F. E. Terman Award 1989, International Neural Network Society Gabor Award 2009, U.K. Institute of Measurement and Control Honeywell Field Engineering Medal 2009, 3 Sigma Xi Research Awards, UTA Halliburton Engineering Research Award, UTA Distinguished Research Award, ARRI Patent Awards, and various best paper awards. He was listed in Ft. Worth Business Press Top 200 Leaders in Manufacturing, and was appointed to NAE Committee on Space Station in 1995 and IEEE Control Systems Society Board of Governors in 1996. In 1998, Dr. Lewis was appointed an IEEE Control Systems Society Distinguished Lecturer. He is Fellow of the IEEE, Fellow of IFAC, Fellow of the U.K. Institute of Measurement & Control, Fellow of US National Academy of Inventors, and Fellow of American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS). We summarize in the following the key contributions of each manuscript included in this special issue….
