The Control of Behavioral Input/Output Systems

The Control of Behavioral Input/Output Systems

(p.176) 8 The Control of Behavioral Input/Output Systems
Models for Intensive Longitudinal Data

James O. Ramsay

Oxford University Press

Control is required when constraints on the outputs are changed, and it is essential to adapt the system both smoothly and quickly. This chapter provides a concise and informal summary of how control technology works, and adapts it to a behavioral point of view. It starts with the essential element that control mandates: a dynamic model for the change or rate of change in the process to be controlled. The natural model for the rate of change is a differential equation, and a small amount of introduction to the topic cannot be prevented. Some conclusions regarding effective control strategies are made, and the chapter ends with a brief account of some statistical methodologies, drawn from functional data analysis, which may prove helpful.
