Cyber-Physical Distributed Systems: Modeling, Reliability Analysis and Applications
Gather detailed knowledge and insights into cyber-physical systems behaviors from a cutting-edge reference written by leading voices in the field
In Cyber-Physical Distributed Systems: Modelling, Reliability Analysis and Applications, distinguished researchers and authors Drs. Huadong Mo, Giovanni Sansavini, and Min Xie deliver a detailed exploration of the modeling and reliability analysis of cyber physical systems through applications in infrastructure and energy and power systems. The book focuses on the integrated modelling of systems that bring together physical and cyber elements and analyzing their stochastic behaviors and reliability with a view to controlling and managing them.
The book offers a comprehensive treatment on the aging process and corresponding online maintenance, networked degradation, and cyber-attacks occurring in cyber-physical systems. The authors include many illustrative examples and case studies based on real-world systems and offer readers a rich set of references for further research and study.
Cyber-Physical Distributed Systems covers recent advances in combinatorial models and algorithms for cyber-physical systems modelling and analysis. The book also includes:
* A general introduction to traditional physical / cyber systems, and the challenges, research trends, and opportunities for real cyber-physical systems applications that general readers will find interesting and useful
* Discussions of general modelling, assessment, verification, and optimization of industrial cyber-physical systems
* Explorations of stability analysis and enhancement of cyber-physical systems, including the integration of physical systems and open communication networks
* A detailed treatment of a system-of-systems framework for the reliability analysis and optimal maintenance of distributed systems with aging components
Perfect for undergraduate and graduate students in computer science, electrical engineering, cyber security, industrial and system engineering departments, Cyber-Physical Distributed Systems will also earn a place on the bookshelves of students taking courses related to reliability, risk and control engineering from a system perspective. Reliability, safety and industrial control professionals will also benefit greatly from this book.
