Joseph J. Bongiorno, Jr. received the bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral degrees in 1956, 1958, and 1960, respectively, from “Brooklyn Poly” now known as NYU Tandon School of Engineering. He began teaching at the Polytechnic in 1957 as an instructor and remained on the faculty until he retired in 1996. He has continued professional activities since then as Emeritus Professor.
His teaching and research interests have been in control theory, and he has published papers on adaptive systems, stability of linear time-varying systems, dynamical observers, and frequency-domain analytical design techniques for multivariable systems. His research activities have been supported in part through grants from NASA, NSF, and ARO. Professor Bongiorno was a Consultant at Unisys (formerly Sperry) for nearly thirty years where he worked on problems related to inertial navigation of nuclear submarines. He was elected as a Fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) in 1985 for contributions to the theory of control system design. He is also a co-recipient of the 1977 IEEE Control System Society Award for the Best Automatic Control Transactions paper.
Kiheon Park received the B.S. and M.S. degrees in Electrical Engineering from Seoul National University, Korea, in 1978 and 1980, respectively, and the Ph.D. degree in System Engineering from Polytechnic University, NY, in 1987. From 1980 to 1983, he served in the Korean Navy as a full-time instructor at the Naval Academy. He was the recipient of a Korea Electric Association Scholarship from 1983 to 1986. From 1988 to 1990, he worked for the Electronic and Telecommunication Research Institute (ETRI), Daejeon, Korea, where he was involved in a factory automation project. Since March 1990, he has been with the School of Information and Communication Engineering at Sungkyunkwan University, Suwon, Korea, where he is currently a Professor. His research interests include optimal design of linear multivariable control systems, decoupling controller design, numerical calculation of Wiener-Hopf controllers and networked control systems.
The book presents a valuable extensive reference on the design of linear time-invariant multivariable feedback control systems by using the Wiener-Hopf methodology discussing both the theory and practical applications. The book is intended for researchers, engineers and graduate students in automation engineering who wish to learn the theories, technologies, and applications of this subject.” (Lubomír Bakule, zbMATH 1469.93001, 2021)
