**Books **– updated 2024-04-17

I have written four books that contain my “What-I-wish-I-knew-when-starting-my-career” understanding. They also relay the material that I taught in my engineering courses. Three of the books are explanations and practice associated with common and essential engineering analysis techniques – Statistics, Modeling, and Optimization. The fourth, Nonlinear Control, is about new techniques for applying nonlinear first-principles models to control. The images of the book covers are links. The books are:

__Nonlinear Control Using First-Principles Models,__ my newest book, was published by ISA in early 2024.

I have also published handbook/encyclopedia chapters related to process control, optimization, propagation of uncertainty, fuzzy-logic, and neural networks; and tutorials on statistical process control, model-based control, steady-state identification, statistically-based filters, and others.

Some of this material is available on this web site in tutorial versions. Use the contact page if you would like to offer suggestions, ask questions, or request other material.

My hope is that the publications are helpful to those who use the techniques in the practice of engineering.
