Dr. Tan Serves as Guest Editor of IEEE Control Systems Magazine

Dr. Tan and Dr. Ram Iyer, Associate Professor in Department of Mathematics and Statistics at Texas Tech University, are guest editors for a special issue of IEEE Control Systems Magazine (February 2009) that is focused on modeling and control hysteresis.  Hysteresis is a nonlinear phenomenon that is both intellectually stimulating and engineering-relevant, and it arises in diverse disciplines ranging from physics to biology, from material science to mechanics, and from electronics to economics. The special issue is intended to expose the broader controls community to the fascinating subject of hysteresis. It contains articles that describe hysteresis in interesting domains, such as economic systems and soil-water dynamics, as well as articles that explore the origin of hysteresis and control methods for handling hysteresis.
