Summary: Scanning the Issue/Technology
Special Issue on Hybrid Systems: Theory and Applications
A Brief Introduction to the Theory and Applications of Hybrid Systems
The hybrid systems of interest contain two distinct types
of components: subsystems with continuous dynamics and
subsystems with discrete dynamics that interact with each
other. Such hybrid systems arise in varied contexts in man-
ufacturing, communication networks, auto pilot design, au-
tomotive engine control, computer synchronization, traffic
control, and chemical processes, among others. Hybrid sys-
tems have a central role in embedded control systems that
interact with the physical world. They also arise from the
hierarchical organization of complex systems, and from the
interaction of discrete planning algorithms and continuous
control algorithms in autonomous, intelligent systems. In this
paper, a brief introduction to the theory and applications of
hybrid systems is presented and an outline of the papers in
this special issue is given.
Keywords--Continuous and discrete event dynamical systems,
embedded systems, hybrid control, hybrid systems.
