PhD Thesis, February 1992

The ability to model dynamic processes mathematically is an important aspect of automatic control. While traditional control theory has proven successful in characterising continuous dynamic processes, it appears that different mathematical tools are required for modelling processes characterised by discrete events. This thesis investigates the use of nonmonotonic logics as a basis for modelling such processes.

If you have difficulty viewing files that end '.gz', which are gzip compressed, then you may be able to find tools to uncompress them at the gzip web site.

If you have difficulty viewing files that are in PostScript, (ending '.ps' or '.ps.gz'), then you may be able to find tools to view them at the gsview web site.

We have attempted to provide automatically generated PDF copies of documents for which only PostScript versions have previously been available. These are clearly marked in the database - due to the nature of the automatic conversion process, they are likely to be badly aliased when viewed at default resolution on screen by acroread.
