From Springer back cover:
The emergence of flow control as a field of research is owed to
breakthroughs in MEMS technology, allowing instrumentation of
flows on extremely short length and time scales. Dedicated to
tools for control algorithm design, the book brings
together control theoretic and fluid mechanics expertise
in an exhaustive exposition of existing research results
on stabilization and mixing of fluid flows.
The contents structure is ideal for instruction on flow
control as a module in fluid dynamics courses, nonlinear
control courses, or courses on infinite dimensional systems.
For this purpose, the book includes self contained introductory
sections on Navier-Stokes equations, linear and nonlinear control,
and MEMS actuators and sensors.
