This volume contains the lectures presented at the workshop on "Advances in Mathematical Systems Theory," held on the island of Borkum, Germany (April 20-23, 1999). The book will be of interest to graduate students and researchers interested in control theory and mathematical systems theory, who will find in-depth analysis and presentations from diverse perspectives interacting in this lively area. The editors are proud to dedicate this volume to Diederich Hinrichsen on the occasion of his 60th birthday in acknowl- edgment of his major contributions to linear systems theory and control theory and his long-term achievements in establishing mathematical sys- tems theory in Germany. We all owe much to him as a teacher, colleague, and friend. The editors thank the Graduiertenkolleg "Komplexe Dynamische Sys- teme" at the University of Bremen as well as the European "Nonlinear Control Network" for providing financial support that enabled this work- shop.

"This volume contains lectures presented at the workshop `Advances in Mathematical Systems Theory'.... Many of the contributors are leading international researchers in the field. The main topics are recent advances in nonlinear systems theory, including parameterization problems and behaviour of the linear system, convolution codes, complementary and hybrid systems. Controllability and stabilizability of infinite-dimensional systems are treated as well." -Applications of Mathematics
