Prof. Karl Johan Åström is a pioneer and statesman in the fields of automatic, adaptive, and computer-aided control engineering and system identification, whose fundamental contributions to scholarly and applied research have been uniformly recognized. This AMR audio interview describes his experiences at the interface between academic research and industrial applications, a story of how fortune rewards the bold, and the risks of sending feedback control signals over large distances across manual phone exchanges.
The purpose of the Journal of Applied Mechanics is to serve as a vehicle for the communication of original research results of permanent interest in all branches of mechanics. The majority of the papers published in the journal are full-length articles of considerable depth. Comments on published papers may be submitted in the form of discussion, which is subject to a rebuttal by the author.
