Optimum performance is a vital concern for any situation humans are presented with; however, as the complexity increases, such as in large-scale systems, it becomes more difficult to obtain ideal control.

Superfunctions and the Optimization of Large-Scale Dynamic Systems presents innovative perspectives on improving the performance of large scale systems affected by human control and provides an overview of how superfunctions enhance systems’ functionality. Focusing on the foundations, design, and operation of superfunctions, this video is a vital resource for researchers, professionals, practitioners, engineers, and educators.
