For such a system with given inputs and outputs, the aggregation method consists of finding a simplified representation by means of a global approach retaining the same main structural and/or input-output properties.

Borne [Institut Industriel du Nord, Villeneuve d'Ascq, France] Aggregation, Chained Simple models are preferred for control system design, provided they capture the important dynamic features of the actual system. 0]x where y is the output of dimension r < n , and Fn Fn F = η> Fk-2A Fk-IA Fa 0 F2} 0 0 0 ...

L)-(3) is called the GHR because of the similarity of Eqn. (3) to the 21 Aggregation, (a) robust control, (b) adaptive control, (c) multivariable control, (d) nonlinear control (e) stochastic control, and (f) distributed parameter control. Topics attached to progress in computer technology are (a) learning and self-organizing systems, (b) hierarchical control systems, (c) intelligent control systems, and (d) discrete-event control systems. It must always be kept in mind that the complexity of a system increases exponentially with its size.
