Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Programming language
  • Control theory
  • Mathematical analysis

His primary areas of study are Control theory, Supervisory control, Controllability, Control theory and Event. W.M. Wonham regularly links together related areas like State in his Control theory studies. His work carried out in the field of Supervisory control brings together such families of science as Control engineering, Systems theory, Discrete system and Formal language.

As a part of the same scientific family, W.M. Wonham mostly works in the field of Controllability, focusing on Observability and, on occasion, Decentralised system. In the field of Control theory, his study on Repetitive control overlaps with subjects such as Youla–Kucera parametrization, Action and Context. His Event research includes elements of Consistency and Modular design.

His most cited work include:

  • Supervisory control of a class of discrete event processes (2964 citations)
  • The control of discrete event systems (2582 citations)
  • Paper: The internal model principle of control theory (2079 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

W.M. Wonham focuses on Supervisory control, Control theory, Supervisor, Event and Control engineering. His research in Supervisory control is mostly concerned with Supervisory control theory. W.M. Wonham frequently studies issues relating to Event and Control theory.

He usually deals with Event and limits it to topics linked to Control and Computation and Generator. His Theoretical computer science study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Consistency, Discrete event dynamic system, Discrete system and State space. His work in the fields of Control theory, such as Internal model, intersects with other areas such as Control.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Supervisory control (42.86%)
  • Control theory (39.83%)
  • Supervisor (21.65%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2006-2020)?

  • Supervisory control (42.86%)
  • Supervisor (21.65%)
  • Control theory (39.83%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Supervisory control, Supervisor, Control theory, Event and Control. His work deals with themes such as Automaton, Distributed computing, State, Control engineering and Observability, which intersect with Supervisory control. His work investigates the relationship between Distributed computing and topics such as Supervisory control theory that intersect with problems in Scheduling, Control theory and Bridging.

His studies examine the connections between Control theory and genetics, as well as such issues in Event, with regards to Constraint. In his research on the topic of Event, Symbolic data analysis, Dining philosophers problem and Programming language is strongly related with Symbolic computation. His Control research includes themes of Computation and Asynchronous communication.

Between 2006 and 2020, his most popular works were:

  • Supervisory Control Architecture for Discrete-Event Systems (123 citations)
  • Supervisor Localization: A Top-Down Approach to Distributed Control of Discrete-Event Systems (98 citations)
  • Dynamic Multiple-Period Reconfiguration of Real-Time Scheduling Based on Timed DES Supervisory Control (79 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Programming language
  • Mathematical analysis
  • Algorithm

His main research concerns Supervisory control, Event, Control engineering, Distributed computing and Supervisory control theory. The study incorporates disciplines such as Control system, Control theory and Control logic in addition to Supervisory control. The Control theory study combines topics in areas such as Event, Sublanguage and Existential quantification.

He combines subjects such as Control, State and Symbolic computation with his study of Event. His studies in Distributed computing integrate themes in fields like Lottery scheduling, Least slack time scheduling and Job shop scheduling. His study in Supervisory control theory is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Control theory, Scheduling, Dynamic priority scheduling and Fixed-priority pre-emptive scheduling.
